  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    For me the palate of this Glen Mhor is much more complex than the auster nose.
    • Nose
      Typical hard to get 'closed' nose characteristic for lots of Rare Malt expressions. Very spirity. Grasiness and hay. But also flowery notes and hints of smoke. Apricots. Maltiness.
    • Taste
      Soft and creamy mouth texture. Lemon and lime. Honey and some vanilla. Slightly spiced of white pepper and cloves. Cinnamon. Well rounded.
    • Finish
      Quite long and warm. Fruity sweetness intermingled with some delicate peat.

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    As always, Rare Malts has just incredible quality, the power is always super integrated and very intense, crazy notes are almost always there, great stuff.
    • Nose
      Grated coconut, almonds, great light oak, marzipan, vanilla, lemon candies, dried apricots, candied ginger, macarons, pear chips, subtle grasses and light malt
    • Taste
      Pear chips, ginger, green apple, anise, white pepper, nutmeg, banana chips, pineapple and coconut cream, some vanilla and lemon candy
    • Finish
      Aaah, great coconut cream continues, whole Pina Colada in the finish, ginger, camphor, long and warm, great finish

    Tried it at TMA Vol.5, a nice Glen Mhor, with nice saltiness and sweetness, and very viscous mouth-feel.

  8. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Old school highland profile. Beautiful bottling, full of character and independent. I like it very much.
    Water opens it up, adding subtle fruity undertones and a flowery tone.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Mineral, grassy, old tool box, copper coins, honey, almonds. Green fruit (kiwi and gooseberries). Butter cream. Purely alcoholic. Playful and elegant.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily approach, a bit peppery, again the old tool box, the minerality and the grassy in combination with the almonds.
      Good density.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Pretty long and well balanced. Again, on the mineral-grassy side. And again the almonds.

  9. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I just love it. Atypical and nice balance.
    • Nose
      Pineapple, red fruit. Currant. Camphor rolled up.
      Pepper, slightly meaty. White grapes.
      Light cold ash.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, lemon, wood, quite strong in alcohol.
      Peach, syrup. Cinnamon, cherry. Gingerbread.
      Slightly sweet.
    • Finish
      Long finish on cereals, honey, varnish, gingerbread.
