Longmorn 57 Years Old 1961 - G&M Private Collection 'Twin' Set (2x70cl)
Filled on the same day into casks of different oak, our Private Collection from Longmorn Distillery 1961 by Gordon & MacPhail 'Twin' whiskies, selected by identical twin brothers Stuart and Richard Urquhart from the owning family, are the oldest Longmorn single malts ever released.
On 2 February 1961, George Urquhart commissioned a filling of first sherry casks at the Longmorn Distillery. Both whiskies began life with inherently the same DNA, the only difference between the two being the species of oak: Cask 508 was made from European Oak (Quercus Robur) while Cask 512 was built using American Oak (Quercus Alba). Over the next 57 years, the whiskies matured into their own unique expressions until being bottled on 2nd February 2018.
Only 97 twin sets were released for sale worldwide, each set is individually numbered.
