Longmorn 1961 - 2018 Private Collection Cask No.508
An incredibly special whisky from Longmorn Distillery. On 2 February 1961, George Urquhart commissioned a filling of two first fill Sherry casks at the Longmorn Distillery, on the outskirts of Elgin, his home town.
The two 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 it's twin, Cask 512 was built using American Oak (Quercus Alba).
Over the next 57 years, the whiskies gradually evolved and now exhibit distinctly different flavour profiles.
Originally sold as a pair, only 97 sets were available Worldwide. This is a unique opportunity to obtain a truly spectacular and rare whisky from cask no. 508.
