  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    An impressive Glen Mhor. Remarkably balanced.
    • Nose
      Delicate sherry. On juicy oranges and tangerines. Heather and honey. Beeswax. Herbal notes as well. It's quite fresh and mellow.
    • Taste
      Red berries and strawberries. Papaya. Sweet oak. Slightly spicy. Rich and complex.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Some tannins. Gingery.

    A closed distillery that comes with cult status, and rightly so. I drove around the area once trying to find remains of it only to find a Curry’s et al. I’ve had just half a dozen expressions from Glen Mhor and they’ve all been excellent, some really excellent [WLP95].

    N: With an oily weight on pouring, this initially seems bolder than it really is. The nose talks of a subtly husky pickle, jelly, and [Gewurtztraminer] dessert wine-sweetness with heathery/herbal honeyed overtones and a quiet drifting smouldering thread – dreamy stuff. There’s so much here for me to gorge over including musty dates, Demerara sugar over hot milky porridge, red wine sweet > > Bovril-y < mushroom jus,… but it’s definitely me coming to it, not the other way around. This, for a treasure hunter, is one of those special and memorable nosing highlights. Let’s dive on in.

    T: Soft/mellow aromatically peppery-tannic-sweet with malty-dry old books, beginnings of OBE,.. I had hoped for more umami action on the palate which appears reserved only for the nose, but a few more sips in and the murky aromas of old wine & sherry cellars [not that I’ve been to many], begin to sing as do some of the indescribable faint fruity complexities that begin to emerge. Give me a bottle and I’ll tell you more about it!

    F: Though not that short, it ends all too soon for me. With a softly softly approach and the subtlest encapsulated smoke wisps attached, it finishes like a dreamy-dry olive-tannin & wine-like old skool sherry – dry bitter-sweet sherry – or perhaps a bone-dry old cognac that still has a few words of wisdom to impart.

    C: One gentle dram that reveals it’s secrets if you ask really nicely. Yet another very special Glen Mhor.

    Sampled at Boisdale Canary Wharf. I was really impressed, sufficiently to go and buy a bottle.

    The nose has thick sugar syrup, tar, ozone, toffee, pot pourri and apple blossom - lovely! The palate is similar but sweeter, fruity, smooth and buttery. The finish is long, slightly smokey and sweet.

    from a purchased sample
    • Nose
      Here we are on sherry, varnished leather, roasted coffee grinds, and
      attending cocoa. Wax, giving a pseudo-smoky quality, and mustiness. More
      on chocolate with time, and there is clear jammy fruit tucked away.
      Cherry latrices and strawberry-rhubarb compote. This has finesse. Some
      fudgy maltiness, and alcoholic sharpness cutting in. And some
      Darjeeling, too.
    • Taste
      Presents really well for 45%. Entry is malty sweet with just a hint of
      strawberries and red fruit. It builds and shows more of what the nose
      promised: lots of varnished old leather, chocolate, American coffee, and
      then some earthy flavors. Moss, rancio, mushrooms (almost). Burned red
      fruit jam. Generally, the fruit is subtle. Seems rather older than its
      age, but it's a fine sherry indeed.
    • Finish
      Malty chocolate, rancio, clay, and more of the leather varnish, only in
      trace amounts. In all, the finish is brief, but it's a really excellent
      dram. I'd be rather pleased to have mhor of this dram, if only the
      distillery were still around.
