Longmorn distillery is found between Glen of Rothes and Elgin. Its name is derived from the Gaelic, Lhanmorgund, which means "place of the holy man". This is a reference to the church which once stood there. Prior to the distillery being built in 1895 by James Duff, there had also been a grain mill on the site. R.J.S. McDowell actually considered Longmorn to be one of the top four malt whiskies. Tasting note: Longmorn Glenlivet 12yo Colour: Light golden.
