Longmorn The Distiller's Choice, 40%

Price: $68 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Dave Broom

The latest in Chivas Bros. no age statement (NAS) variant of their malts and while the nose here does have Longmorn's fruity elements, they are discreet. This is also the case on the palate, where what is usually thick, elegant, and fruity has had its volume turned down. Blind, it's a nice dram, but I don't want nice from Longmorn, I want great. £47
