1992 Longmorn 20 Year Old K&L Exclusive "Exclusive Malts" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1108510

Introducing our newest source for top-quality whisky at wonderfully reasonable price points - the Exclusive Malts! Our partnership with this independent bottler will bring EM expressions for the first time ever to the United States, available only at K&L. David and I had a field day working through the various casks available in the tiny warehouse outside of Glasgow. Although we had already selected a younger Longmorn expression from Signatory, the distillery has such a great reputation amongst enthusiasts for quality and we were open to bringing in a more mature cask if it tasted great. The nose of this whisky is classic Speyside - that heady mix of vanilla, malted grains, and rich stonefruit. The palate is more of the same: sweet grains, lots of wonderful vanilla and caramel, a finish of soft fruits with a hint of banana. Great Longmorn often doesn't do a whole lot, but it does what it does very well. There's not supreme depth or insane complexity going on with this whisky, but there's a whole lotta deliciousness. Longmorn just simply hits the spot and sometimes that more than enough. Considering the 16 year old distillery bottle sells for well over $100 here in the states, getting this 20 year old single cask at full proof is quite the deal indeed.

This really makes no sense. When we tasted this fabulous mature sherried aged Longmorn in the warehouse we though, "wow this is gonna be REALLY expensive." I don't know if someone screwed up in their accounting department, but when we saw the prices we did one of those laugh cries where snot runs down your face. No, but really this should be much more expensive. The underproof distillery bottling at 16 year is easily $100 on a good day. Here we have a full term sherry casks that has all the goods, for under $90! Wow, salt water taffy, banana peel, ultra ripe stone fruit, something dark and powerful in the background. Chocolate dipped cocoa beans. This whisky is all about balance. Supreme!
