Sansibar Longmorn 8 Year Old, 2010Spirit Shop Selection
Longmorn is a popular Speyside distillery, and an essential component in many blends over the years. As such, much of its production is reserved for this purpose and although distillery bottlings first appeared in the 1980s, it was rarely seen before the 15 year old expression was relaunched in 1993. The distillery has long been prominent on the independent scene however, and has cult following in Japan, perhaps in no small part to its connection with Nikka founder Masataka Taketsuru, who modelled the stills at Yoichi on those at Longmorn.
This was matured in a bourbon hogshead for 8 years before bottling in 2019 by Sansibar in collaboration with Spirits Shop’ Selection.
