Chivas new expression of Longmorn replaces the 15-year-old. Neil Macdonald, Brand Director for Malts at Chivas Brothers, says Longmorn has been considered the hidden jewel of Speyside for many years by distillers and connoisseurs alike and the new Longmorn is the perfect expression of luxury malt.' This release is bottled at the unusual strength of 48% and is non-chill-filtered.
Tasting note: Almost five years have passed since we ve revisited the revamped Longmorn and we re pleased to report that this is much improved. It presents a flawless, eye catching bright gold and offers up attractive scents of beeswax, sweet toasted cereals and in later stages, fruity suggestions of sultana / apple and pear. Entry is smooth and delicate; mid palate boasts significantly more depth and concentration featuring flavours of juicy malt, sweet ginger biscuit and candied citrus along side pulsing spices. Balances out beautifully at 48% finishing lean and a little short but very lively and satisfying. 48% Alc./Vol.
