MM Distillery profile:
The Longmorn distillery kept popping in and out of my purely personal top ten over the past few years. It initially arrived in my Top 10 thanks to the affordable and very decent 15 years old official bottling that was available in the 1990's. However, in recent years this 15yo has been replaced by a far less impressive (but much more expensive) 16yo OB. The remaining redeeming factor were independent bottlings of older but still reasonably priced independent bottlings from the early .
