About Longmorn 23 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Longmorn 23 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for 23 years – the perfect age for a Longmorn. This is a spectacular and rare single malt whisky that greets with aromas of Jamaican ginger cake and honeycomb on the nose which turn into fruity flavors of melon and apple on the palate. Well-rounded and balanced, the finish is eternally long, subtly peppery with just a hint of vanilla. The luxurious packaging and representation will be appreciated by any whisky aficionado.
Longmorn Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made using the finest barley that comes from the Laich of Moray, just a few miles from the distillery. The rich plains of Moray and the region's unique micro-climate are ideal for cultivating flavorful barley. The barley is then milled and mashed before being fermented for approximately two days. The wash is distilled twice through Longmorn's copper-pot stills, which are heated by a direct coal flame. This requires greater attention and skill than modern, steam-heated stills. The uneven heat produced by the coal flame also produces a more unique and textured whisky.

Located between the Glen of Rothes and the Glen of Elgin, not too far from an old waterwheel attached to a workable steam engine within the borders of Moray, Longmorn Distillery was founded in 1893 by John Duff and his partners Charles Shirres and George Thomson. Duff was somewhat of a serial entrepreneur — he had previously managed the Glenlossie Distillery two decades earlier, and he would go on to found the BenRiach Distillery years later. The partners chose this particular location due to the ample water, local barley fields, and access to a rail line.
Production first began in 1894 and shortly after, a second distillery was built in the same place. Several decades later, Longmorn formed a partnership with The Glenlivet and Glen Grant, which was later acquired by Chivas brothers in 1978. Today, the distillery is owned by the French giant Pernod Ricard and boasts a rich history of making exceptional single malt whiskies.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
