Long John Scotch
Long John Blended Scotch Whisky dates back to 1825 and was named in honour of John McDonald, a distiller of the time who was given the nickname Long John for being very tall and strong. Speaking of tall, this antique bottle of Long John blend from the 1960s is rather large indeed, holding 227cl of whisky. Long John Whisky is particularly popular in France. It dates back to the early 20th century, and is made at the Tormore distillery.
The Long John blend contains 48 malts, including Laphroaig and Highland Park. These malts definitely influence the distinctive taste of this blend.

Bushmills 16 Year Old
The 16 year old Bushmills builds on the soft, smoothness of the 10 year old and adds some very nice fruity characters. The whiskey is initially aged seperately for 15 years in both bourbon and sherry casks then these are married together into port wood for around a year of extra finishing. The port wood adds some delicious flavours of red fruits, some sweetness and hints of candy and chocolate. Like all Bushmills whiskeys it is very smooth but this one has a sweeter, fruitier edge than them all.
