Longmorn 2008 (Sherry) – #060

By purchasing a share in this Longmorn 1st Fill Oloroso cask, you will receive two bottles of 13Y old Longmorn of 70cl, bottled at cask strength.
It is expected that approx. 250 bottles, out of the barrel at full cask strength of just over 52% when bottled in 2021.

The dram in the glass, gives long heavy “tears”. The scent that comes to one in the glass is wonderful.

Status update on the cask:

February 12, 2021 Our tasting panel tasted a cask sample from February 2021, and the panel’s overall assessment is that the cask is ready for bottling this year. We have therefore asked our bottlers to have the cask bottled shortly after the whisky turns 13 on 30 October 2021.
September 24, 2021 The taste panel was assembled again, and we tasted i.a. on a small cask sample from the cask again, to be absolutely sure that the cask is ready for bottling. There was great agreement that the cask is ready for bottling. So the cask is bottled as planned after it is 13 years old. We do not know the date yet, but when we know it, there will be an update more here on the page about it.

NB The tasting notes given further down on this page are from the most recent cask sample.

Status

The cask was bottled on November 3 at a cask strength of 55.2%. 197 bottles (70cl) came out of the cask and also 24 bottles of 20cl. The bottles are sent to our warehouse when labels are affixed.
