Longmorn

Distillery Bottlings

When I think of dearly departed expressions, Longmorn 15 year old is always near the top of my list. It’s excellent whisky, which is, of course, the main reason its absence is felt more keenly – but it’s not the only reason – what happened after Chivas discontinued this bottling still never fails but to piss me off. The 15 year old was replaced in 2007 with a 16 year old expression – one year older and with a slightly different marriage of casks, but still perfectly decent enough. Fast forward to 2016 and any semblance of sanity was about to be thrown out the window.

Earlier in the summer scientists from Linnaeus University in Sweden raised the heckles of whisky fans worldwide with the publication of their article ‘Dilution of whisky – the molecular perspective’ in Nature Scientific Reports. Their study posited that amphipathic molecules (those which are both hydrophilic and have an affinity for water, as well as being hydrophobic and lacking an affinity for water) are a primary driver for the taste of whisky. They then proceeded to examine one such amphipathic molecule – guaiacol. Media reports of the study took things rather to far proclaimed headlines such as ‘Whisky tastes better with water’ and ‘Scientists prove adding water to whisky makes it taste better’. Cue expected uproar.
