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, 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 old. 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-American oak version and has been bottled at 40.8%, un chill-filtered and presented in a beautiful oak casing.
Nose: Chestnut, dried vanilla, raspberry, new leather, sweet butterscotch and raisins.
Palate: Cherries, plums, marzipan, bananas, stewed apples and a slight earthiness.
Finish: Complex with a hint of charcoal, mahogany and dry tannins.
