Longmorn  朗摩簡介 :

   
 
Longmorn朗摩蒸餾廠由John Duff1894年成立,John Duff20年前也成立了斯佩賽另一間知名酒廠Glenlossie蒸餾廠,他是為一位經驗豐富的威士忌蒸餾廠投資人。Longmorn蒸餾廠位於Elgin鎮和Rothers鎮之間,這一帶地區土質肥沃盛產大麥,又具有清澈的水質,許多知名蒸餾廠都建廠於此。

John Duff將朗摩Longmorn蒸餾廠經營得有聲有色,因此1898年在隔壁成立了朗摩 Longmorn二廠,也就是現今的BenRiach蒸餾廠,但幾乎在同年John Duff受到大客戶Pattison Elder Co的倒帳而宣告破產。 於是將朗摩Longmorn蒸餾廠賣給了格蘭冠(Glan Grant)的創始人James R Grant,在其掌管至1970年,才由The Glenlivet & Glen Grant Distilleries Hill Thomson Co. Ltd合併成為格蘭利威蒸餾廠 (Glenlivet Distillery Ltd)

1974
年時將蒸餾器增加為八座,將兩座舊蒸餾器報廢,取而代之的是兩座全新的直式蒸餾器,朗摩蒸餾廠現屬於保樂力加集團(Pernod Ricard),生產的威士忌多用於起瓦士(Chivas Regal)和皇家禮炮(Royal Salute )調和使用。


Longmorn威士忌酒廠酒質優異,與其十分堅持傳統蒸餾工藝有絕對的關係,酒廠仍以使用大型水車及蒸氣機發電進行生產,也是最後一家仍堅持使用煤炭直火加熱的蒸餾廠,不過這項傳統技術在1994年被迫改變成蒸氣式間接加熱,從此煤炭直火加熱成為絕響。


Tasting Note by Whiskyfun Serge:

Longmorn 44 yo 1966/2010 (46.8%, Gordon & MacPhail for Japanese Import System, cask #612, 278 bottles)
Four stars
Colour: deep amber. Nose: the colour suggests a heavy sherry monster but it isn’t at all, it’s rather an elegant and very fresh Longmorn that, indeed, displays a ‘sherryness’ but that’s otherwise all on stewed fruits, flowers and honey. Granted, there are notes of dried figs and dates as well as a little milk chocolate but again, it’s rather ethereal and beautifully so. Becomes more and more complex with a little breathing, with touches of leather, chestnuts, raspberry jam, roasted nuts, coffee and ripe blood oranges. A delicate old Longmorn. Mouth: more oomph now and an attack all on a mixture of chocolate and fruit jams. Ganache and Christmas truffles, definitely. Quite bizarrely, it’s less complex than on the nose and maybe even a little monodimensional. The oranges are back as well, that is, and the chocolaty notes never stop getting bigger. Good mouth feel, not ‘thick’ but with good presence. Finish: medium long, on jams, jams and jelly. Raspberry jam rules it. Comments: a palate that’s excellent but maybe a tad monolithic for my tastes, even with water, but a nose that’s very complex and most elegant. As often with old malts, you get two whiskies in one!
