Longmorn 1961 Private Collection Cask #508
45% / 70cl
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Gordon & MacPhail have released a new addition to the elite Private Collection and its as extra special as ever. Two single sister casks of Longmorn Whisky have been chosen and botttled by Stuart and Richard Urquhart in 2018, with only 97 bottles of each available worldwide, 15 in the UK. Oh, and did we mention they are the oldest Longmorn whiskies EVER to be bottled at 57 years of age. Both whiskies were distilled on the same day and filled into two different casks. one American ex-bourbon Oak and the other an ex-European Sherry oak cask.
This is the ex-European oak edition and has been bottled at 45%, un-chill filtered and presented in a beautiful oak casing.
Nose: Old cognac, forest fruits, wood varnish, coffee, figs and floral notes.
Palate: Very viscous with cigar tobacco, walnuts, toffee, espresso, old earthen oak and a touch of wood smoke.
Finish: Incredibly long bursting with aromatic and floral notes.
