Gordon & MacPhail Unveils Twin Longmorn Whiskies Personally Selected by Identical Twins from the Owning Family

 

Single malt Scotch whisky creators Gordon & MacPhail is releasing two decanters as part of its ‘Private Collection’, single cask releases personally selected by members of the family that owns the company.

 

The ‘twin’ whiskies were selected for bottling by identical twin brothers Stuart and Richard Urquhart, and contain the oldest Longmorn single malts ever released, originally laid down to mature by the brothers’ grandfather George Urquhart in 1961. Sold as a pair, only 97 sets of twin decanters are available worldwide.

Longmorn Twin DNA - Cask 508

Both bottled at cask strength and matured in first fill Sherry hogsheads, the whisky from Cask 508, selected by Richard Urquhart, was nurtured in European Oak. Its whisky is a mahogany colour, with red highlights and exhibits a rich, abundant nose, bursting with complex aromatic flavours and perfumed top notes.

Longmorn Twin DNA - Cask 512

By contrast, the whisky from Cask 512 selected by Stuart Urquhart is rich chestnut in colour, gleaming with ruby and amber highlights. Matured in American Oak, it is slightly sweeter on the nose and fruity on the palate, with notes of black cherry, raspberry, and dried vanilla.

Each individually numbered hand-blown decanter is beautifully presented in award-winning packaging which includes a book written by renowned writer and rare whisky specialist, Jonny McCormick, along with a personally signed certificate of authenticity from each brother.

The twin decanters complete the release of four extremely rare single cask bottlings unveiled as part of the ‘Private Collection’ range. The first, Private Collection Glenlivet 1943 by Gordon & MacPhail, a rare wartime cask, was released in October 2017 and the second, Private Collection from Linkwood Distillery 1956 by Gordon & MacPhail, was released in February 2018.
