Bought – Justminiatures, 13th November 2013
After having a go at the Aberfeldy 12yo for being overpriced, enter the Longmorn 16yo. My local Tesco supermarket have a full 70cl bottle of the 16yo but at £50 it’s about £20 more than it merits. With Christmas approaching Tesco have reduced it to £43 but they’d have to lower it to £30 before I’d consider it. Even then I’d rather spend the money on a Glenlivet 15yo or a Glenfarclas 12yo. But all credit to Longmorn for trying to avoid a battle with these lofty opponents by having a higher price. Clearly the hope is that people think “it’s more expensive so therefore must be better”. There will always be people who fall for that. As for me, I’ve opted for this miniature of a 12yo Longmorn which gets 82/100 from Malt Maniacs. The 16yo only gets 78/100 (an average from 6 reviewers).
