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.
