  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The nose lags behind a bit and does not really open, the rest is catching up well, but it goes with my fresh, bright notes back in my direction and fits in with the (positive) impressions of the good Mhors.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, light honey, extremely closed even after a long time, almonds, removed some lemon, some fresh grass
    • Taste
      Nice mixture of citrus notes, grapefruit and salt, with some cold ash, lime, lemon drops, melon, kiwi, lychee, later a lot of honey, grapes, camphor, fuller than the nose would suggest, some nuts and crystal sugar still there
    • Finish
      Medium length, melon, kiwi, almonds, pistachio, some malt

    • Nose
      Light and fresh. Unripe light grapes, sour apples, hay. Loamy soil, limestone, damp cellar. Sawdust, a touch of chlorine.
    • Taste
      Hay, pepper, some malt and honey. A trace of oregano and thyme. Mineral water. Rather short.

    Wonderful. Without a doubt the best Glen Mhor I have tried so far. I know it is only my fifth, but the other four were letdowns one by one, while this is really very good.
    • Nose
      The nose is fruity and sweet on the one hand, but has a big herbal side from nettles and freshly cut grass on the other. Luckily the fruit wins out, making this quite a lovely nose. After a few moments quite a bit of honey kicks in to underscore the sweetness of the nose. Then some olive oil and lemon peel join the fray. Finally some melon. With a vengeance! Wow, I would almost call this nose complex!
    • Taste
      The body is good, the strength as well. The palate offers a hint of cardboard, but that is quickly overtaken by wonderfully juicy fruit and something that reminds me of crystal sugar. Very sweet, in fact. Woodsmoke rears its head. Loads of citrus (grapefruit!) and is joined by a handful of nuts. Make that pistachio. This is, to be frank, absolutely delicious.
    • Finish
      A very long, bittersweet finish, that shows quite some spices. Melon at the death.

    [July, 2017]  I re-tasted this dram tonight and the texture shows fast legs and late tears.  The nose is punchy first before the sweet wine aromas kick in.  I am pretty sure:  Without the "wine treatment" the whisky was rather poor (there are not many whisky aromas in the nose).  Same on the palate where the bitter flavours are more dominant tonight (due to more sensitive tastebuds, probably).  Neat I score it 85-86 points only but after adding some water I go for 87 points (so slightly lower than last time). 

    Nevertheless a very interesting treatment and a real experience to taste.  But I will not buy a bottle...

    [March, 2017]  What the hell is a "wine treated hogshead"???  Did they pour sweet wine into a bourbon hogshead and left it there for a while before filling the Glen Mhor into this cask?  And was there still some wine left in the cask to enhance the whisky further?  This all sounds very, very strange...

    ...but the result is more then okay.  The typical fat Glen Mhor profile is not that present (probably the reason for this wine treatment) but still recognisable.  And it nicely combines with the sweet wine flavours.  The wine covers some of the heavy wooden structures too, balancing it out.  Very interesting combination...  With water it gets sweeter both in the nose and on the palate, but it is more bitter and dry in the finish too.  I like it better just neat.

    If this was intentional, than the mastermind behind this experiment is a genius.  I guess the Glen Mhor alone was quite 'over the edge' - but in combination with the wine flavours this is a tasty, delicious dram.  Like the result, not sure if I like the process too...

    this Whisky is very much alive and vibrant. a novelty for me, because this is the first Whisky where i actually liked the fizzy nature of it. normally i would hate it with a passion.
    • Nose
      honeydew, and that big time almost dominating it at the first few sniffs. olive oil. then some banana. not sure what's wine treated about this. there is nothing winey here. some sweet bread. citrusy after a while.
    • Taste
      sweet beer, a little fizzy but that's not too bad in this case. a hint , really just a tiny hint of peat, fresh fruit, gets flowery somewhere in the distance. and quite sweet, tastes like a tea spoon of sugar has been added. quite intense. the olive oil is back too. a little dusty.
    • Finish
      long. remians oily, sweet but never too sweet. and again dusty/dry-ish/fizzy.

  7. lincolnimp scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur


    Nose - The orange is much more evident, still some lemon and the honeyed notes remain.

    Palate - Opens up nicely, still the honey and slight smokiness but there is also notes of smoked ham.

    Finish - Medium length, sweet and fruity.

    I do not think the wine had too much effect and thankfully the character of the whisky is still evident. Worth trying.
    • Nose
      Nose - Honey, lemon (lemon sherbert sweets), wood polish, floral.
    • Taste
       quite hot neat, still some honey with a slight smokey note. There is also some biscuit notes mixed in with pistachio. At the end there is also a slight orange note. More potent than I was expecting.
    • Finish
      Very long and getting sweeter.

  9. MaltMartin scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Not the best Glen Mhor I ever had. Too bitter and spicy.
    • Nose
      The nose start with a lot of fresh (wet) grass. Later on spring flowers. Cardboard as well. Nougat. Some melon and pear as well.
    • Taste
      Quite spicy and astringent. Followed by grapefruits all over. Also blood oranges. Metalic notes. Nutiness with a harsh edge. Ginger. Not very enjoyable to be honest.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Extreme bitter and peppery. Nutmeg. Very dry.
