Longmorn unveils two single malt whiskies

Chivas Brothers’ single malt whisky Longmorn has released two new bottlings; Longmorn 23 Year Old and a reinterpretation of its Longmorn 16 Year Old, completing a trio of single malt whiskies.

the-new-longmorn-portfolio-bottle-rangeLongmorn 23 Year Old, aged for two decades in oak casks, is bottled without chill-filtration, offering flavour notes of “ripe pear and soft red apples that give way to a long, smooth finish”. The expression is available at the RRP of US$1,450.

The Longmorn 16 Year Old meanwhile is crafted using a higher proportion of rare first-fill American oak casks resulting in “smooth, vanilla flavour notes”. Matured in a combination of ex-Sherry, American and traditional oak casks and still bottled without chill-filtration, Longmorn 16 Year Old carries notes of “ripe orchard fruits, sweet vanilla and smooth milk chocolate”. It is available at the RRP of $252.

“Longmorn 16 Year Old has long been a firm favourite among Scotch whisky connoisseurs, but we wanted to make it even more luxurious than it was before and the Longmorn team has certainly achieved this”, said Trevor Buckley, Longmorn Master Distiller.

“Similarly, Longmorn 23 Year Old offers the pinnacle presentation of the inimitable Longmorn spirit and provides the ultimate luxury Scotch whisky experience.”

The bottlings join Longmorn The Distiller’s Choice, which was released in Jaunary 2016 and named after the belief that Longmorn was every distiller’s favourite dram apart from their own.
