Longmorn / Gordon & MacPhail

Longmorn 1961 Private Collection cask 512 (Gordon and MacPhail) Review

Longmorn 1961 Private Collection cask 512 (Gordon and MacPhail) The second of two really rather special Longmorn drams from Gordon and MacPhail this cask 512 was matured in an American oak cask.

Instantly this is more my style, tropical fruits, hints of strawberry liquorice laces and tasty vanlla sugar, this is obviously ex american oak and very much a tasty dram too. If i could bottle this smell as a spray every decent whisky drinker in the world would be wearing it, its outragously good on the nose.

Teh palate is soft sweet and milky, with buttermilk, tropical fruits and coconut everything i like in a dram, this one for me i can see the reason behind the cost, i don't think i've ever had a dram that got me this entranced with its nose ever before.

If you have this level of money to spend on these drams you can do so at Gordon and MacPhail.

Massive thanks to Gordon and MacPhail for the official samples.
