    Arthur introduces us to Greg Urquhart, owner of Edinburgh-based Gleann Mor. Greg’s company has been going for 5 years, though it has been bottling more hand sanitiser than whisky in recent times. ‘Rare Find’ was Glean Mor’s first brand/range name. This 1997 vintage Rare Find, they bought already finished, for 2 years in a port cask.

    N: Creamy and fruity, the port finish providing the topper-noter – [strawberries – Arthur]. Coming back to this after the Cambus [#2], it’s all-fruit > floral < < juice, ripe yet crisp. We’ve all the apples, melon, ripe pineapple,… Thai fruits galore – all effortlessly emitting aromatic, perfumed aromas.

    T: Strong peppery one to start, but it just needs some time and water, now with a fruity arrival that initially hides the [desirable] beer/wash sourness to come. A whisky for [fruity/pilsner/strong]-beer fans perhaps? Chuck in the water for a more raisin-y husky malty experience, though the fruit bouquet on the nose becomes less obvious/more simple on the palate when reduced. The classic Linkwood fruity putty surely appears at some point before the turn.

    F: The sour > sweet, [port] grape tannins, oak and spirit all seem to carry this one as a group effort. Yeasty peppery abv-fresh finish.

    C: This is right up there with the best of what I’ve tried of Linkwood in the last few years. It’s [NNS] Iain’s favourite also.
