1985 Longmorn 29 Year Old Hunter Laing's "Old & Rare" Single Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1226158

Part of our new Hunter Laing "Old & Rare" series, this incredible 29 year old Longmorn showcases the effects of light and subtle hogshead maturation over the course of almost three decades. Despite nearly thirty years in wood, the color is still a golden straw color and the aromas are still dominated by fruit rather than oak. It's on the palate that the whisky's age becomes clear as an oily, luscious, mouth-coating texture overwhelms the senses, coupled with poached pears, creme brulee, and a resinous note from the oak. Longmorn has long been an insider's favorite, known for rich and concentrated malty flavor. This single barrel expression beautifully showcases the distillery's reputation for quality and character in a rare, ultra-mature release.

For $199.99 this is an absolute steal. It makes me nervous just seeing this price because I know how much it's really worth. Macallan 18 is $250 now. Talisker 25 is $500. And this 29 year old Longmorn (better than both those whiskies, in my opinion) is older, richer, softer, more complex, more concentrated, and more decadent. This is a single barrel, cask strength edition of a Highland distillery known for classic single malt flavors and classic whiskies. The vanilla is there along with the rich malty notes and the Highland fruit, but there's a special flavor that can only come from long-term aging in a hogshead cask and this whisky is OOOOOOZING with it. It's the flavor of excellence. The flavor of age. The flavor of luxury. In this case, luxury is in reach.

A perfect gift for someone else or yourself. There are bright floral and malty aromas that are pretty and inviting. In the mouth it is soft and creamy with hints of honey. There is a nice long finish.

A fantastic, very old, classic expression, this Longmorn has it all and is a more than worthy splurge. A nose of dried grains and cream also has nuances of well worn leather. Indeed simply nosing this whiskey brings to mind a distinguished study or library, fine woolen plaid products, and any other number of quintessentially Scottish objects. Beautifully balanced and distinguished on the palate, fully dry, no Sherry or candied sweetness but more of a confident, soft, understated caress on the palate. I shall buy a bottle of this Hunter Laing bottled Longmorn and fully savour it. If you love Scotch whisky then you may want to follow suit.
