Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : cuivre orangé.
  • Nose : Complexe et particulièrement épicé (poivre, badiane, curry, girofle), il propose également à foison des fruits (orange, abricot, mangue, kaki). Des graines de moutarde, du cuir de Russie, de la toile émeri et du tabac accentuent le caractère majestueux de ce « sherry cask » majeur.
  • Palate : Vive, tout en longueur. Minérale (brique), fruitée (gelée de pomme) et florale (fleur de vigne). Le sherry a apporté avec lui du sel, des embruns et des notes d’encaustique (cire d’abeille). De nouvelles fleurs (chèvrefeuille, pivoine) et du miel de bruyère viennent enrichir la palette gustative.
  • Overall : Longue, riche. De nombreux fruits rouges occupent le devant de la scène (fraise, framboise, groseille, fraise des bois). Puis des notes de cuir de sellerie, de fève de cacao, de noix de pécan et de gousse de vanille sont autant de nuances qui tournent autour du boisé.
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 partnership between La Maison du Whisky and this malt specialist goes back to the early seventies. Initially La Maison du Whisky sold Gordon & MacPhail’s great classics. In the 1990s LDMW established its own cellars and launched a new collection called simply ‘Single Cask’. Every single malt in this range undergoes a rigorous selection process from a large number of samples. As its name suggests, Single Cask consists exclusively of single malts from a single cask that has been bottled without chill filtering. It is thus a separate range in its own right, and is presented in a special bottle selected by La Maison du Whisky with a label adapted from an existing Gordon & MacPhail model.
