Tasting note

  • Appearance : acajou à reflets verdâtres.
  • Nose : Elégant, racé. L’influence du sherry est majestueuse, elle est faite de cerise à l’eau de vie, de cuir, d’encaustique et de fruits rouges (fraise, framboise). En arrière-plan, les champs de vigne andalous inondés de soleil et le paysage verdoyant de la vallée de la Spey. Aridité et bucolisme vont de pair.
  • Palate : Fraîche, gourmande. Son toucher est duveteux (peau de pêche), ses épices affirmées (cannelle, curcuma), ses noix grillées et ses fruits compotés (pêche, poire). Le milieu de bouche est particulièrement exotique (mangue, passion, kaki). Puis, le chocolat noir et le chèvrefeuille invitent à la méditation.
  • Overall : D’une rare finesse. On discerne de la poudre de cacao, des noix de cajou, du gingembre et des fleurs capiteuses (tubéreuse, pivoine et chèvrefeuille). Sa longueur interminable arbore des teintes plus sombres (pruneau, tarte à l’abricot légèrement brûlée). Le verre vide révèle le miel de bruyère et la marmelade.
The brand

The brand

Although Longmorn does not enjoy the same “touristic renown” as its counterpart Strathisla, the quality of its malt whisky makes up for this. Both are owned by Pernod Ricard and are essential components in the Chivas blend, although Longmorn has a more unique and naturally fruity, gourmet character, which lends itself to bourbon or sherry cask ageing.


This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

The Book of Kells is a range by Scottish whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail, which brings together its best whiskies and, since the 1970s, has generally been reserved for exclusive bottlings for a few long-standing customers, such as LMDW. The label of each bottle features a reproduction of an illumination from the famous 8th century manuscript, the Book of Kells. The illumination shows two people, ‘the Dram Takers”, sharing a glass. Hence the reason why the range is often referred to as the Dram Takers.
