The first single malts of this series were aged primarily in refill casks, which allow the whiskies to fully express their fruity/floral character. The second half of the series, however, is more powerful, as aging was achieved in either sherry casks or very peaty casks. This fruity and honeyed Speyside classic is a perfect representation of a Longmorn 2002, featuring both a sweet and highly exuberant character.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Pale yellow.

Nose: Ample, rich. The nose is initially marked by notes of fresh walnuts, pine resin and cocoa beans. It moves smoothly towards aromas of black liquorice and freshly-cut grass. From medicinal (balsam, castor oil), it becomes increasingly warm and heady (honeysuckle, iris).

Palate: Subtle, sophisticated. The initial attack coats the palate in notes of balsam and essential oils (savory, thyme, thuja). The mid-palate brings notes of ripe fruit (pear, apple) and candied citrus fruit (orange, lemon). The aftertaste is herbaceous and minty.

Founded in 1956 by Georges Bénitah, La Maison du Whisky has established itself as one of the largest French specialists in the importing and distribution of rare whiskies. A leader in the sector, its dynamism has played an important role in the evolution of the French market for premium whiskies, and now also fine spirits. Their knowledge, range of whiskies and other spirits and liqueurs is immense. Quality is the unique parameter. They are a major operator. Nikka has granted them exclusive distributor status for the whole of Europe
