With its 16 years aging in ex-Bourbon casks, deft craftsmanship at the copper pots, lovely presentation, and  superior body and texture, you will be left wondering why you haven’t tasted it before now. 
 
Longmorn Distillery Company was founded in 1893 by three men: John Duff, George Thompson, and Charles Shirres. John Duff was a bit of a legend, having founded several distilleries at the time and enjoying a good reputation. Well, the entire Whisky industry went into recession at the turn of the century and hundreds of small shops were wiped out. If you ask Uncle Flaviar about this dark period in Whisky history he still gets choked up and refers to it only as the “time that shall not be mentioned.”
 
Anyway, Longmorn suffered through and managed to remain open, but poor old John Duff was wiped out and had to sell all that he owned to pay his creditors. But his heritage remains to this day in the fine Whisky still produced on site. Over the years, Longmorn ownership has changed hands a few times and they are currently owned by the spirits industry giant Pernod-Ricard. The Whisky produced is split between being bottled as their traditional (and fine) single-malt line and being included as a core component of several premium blends, including Queen Anne and Something Special.
 
Everyone wants a little Longmorn Single Malt in their blend! Those benders love it because of the texture and sweetness it brings to the party. Seriously, this long-overlooked Speyside from the town of Moray is so sought-after by the premium blended Scotch Whisky brands that it can be hard for them to carve out a few barrels of the good stuff to bottle as a signature single-malt. But we are so glad that they do! 
 
Longmorn Single Malt 16 Year has all the right specs … Highland-Speyside, premium ex-Bourbon cask aging, 16 years of patience, deft craftsmanship at the copper pots, and a lovely presentation. The flavors are all there, but what really sets Longmorn Scotch Single Malt 16 Year apart is its gentle sweetness and that lovely mouth-feel. If you are a Whisky fan, you will be wondering why you haven’t tasted it before now.

The malt whisky that was produced at Longmorn quickly became popular with blenders. The National Guardian wrote in 1897: 'Longmorn jumped into favour with buyers from the earliest day on which it was offered.'

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Prior to founding Longmorn, John Duff tried to open the first malt Whisky distillery on the African continent, but South African president Paul Kruger—full of anglophobic leanings—put the kaibash on his plans.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
