I just bought a bottle of 16yo Longmorn...

...because I'd never seen it in our liquor store before and it shocked me by it's mere presence. There were only two bottles there so I didn't want to leave it for fear of never seeing it again. Has anyone tried it? It was $78.08. I fear I've overpaid.

It is $100 at the LCBO - I recall seeing it in France for 40 Euros or so, so your cost is reasonable.


Does not get great reviews on Connosr and is generally considered a light scotch.  Have not tried it personally but if there is a Scapa 16 at your liquor store, can verify that is a good dram.

Will watch out for that Scapa. Thanks.

I've been reading that you want to get the 15yo Longmorn that was released earlier but that wasn't available to me. I should have known that it wasn't great, the packaging was way too fancy. happy

Well the 15yrs is one of the worst dram I tried in the 100 + I have on my list. I read the 16 is better and at that price you were not ripped off IMO.

Drinking alcohol wont solve my problems, but neither will milk !

Great price (for Canada -_- ...) and also a great whisky ! I had the chance to try it thanks to Frank Biskupek (The Glenlivet/Pernod-Ricard ambassador for Canada) and wasn't disapointed. As Jay Rain mentionned, it's a little on the light side but with great floral notes. Great pick in my opinion !

Was it a Scapa Orcadian 16yo? That has just become available at my NSLC. It's $110 though. Is it worth it Jay?
