If you like the 16 year old, you really should seek out a bottle of the now discontinued 15 year old. The 15 is, in my humble opinion, a truly stunning whisky and way above the 16 year with its fancy new packaging. They have tried to rebrand it to appeal to a worldwide market, but trust me, the 15 is so much better! I own both and i am on my 3rd bottle of 15, while the 16 remains 7/10 full.

I haven't tried the 16yr yet. I took your advise and called many of my local stores to see if one had been hidden away no luck.

i'd love to find the 15. I live in Virginia, in the US, and the state controls liquor stores -- so selection is limited. But I'll be in Texas for vacation soon, so maybe! I am a novice at writing tasting notes, and I have to say that the 16yr gave me fits when I tried to write about the nose (maybe that's why I went a bit long on the packaging comment). I couldn't really pin down the nose's defining characteristic for me -- could smell it but not verbalize. The only word that's come to me since, albeit without the whisky in front of me, is a slight fennel edge. ?

Everything I have read about the 15 makes me want it more and more.I Live in Maryland no shipping....At least the 16yr looks nice sitting on the shelf!

I sighted a Longmorn 15 in a mom-pop liquor store today for $55(after tax), should I run to buy this?
