    A fine evening at Hedonism brought some 'luxury' packaged whisky from Duncan Taylor. Tonight's selection is from bourbon casks and predominantly bottled as part of the ‘Tantalus’ range. As far as i can ascertain Tantalus is no different to the ‘Peerless’, ‘Rarest of the Rare’ or ‘Rare Auld’ range - albeit in a fancy bottle and wooden presentation holder. What remains the same is Duncan Taylor’s believe in single cask, cask strength whiskies bottled at great age which meant they were [and are] pricey - but as we know, that's not necessarily any reflection of quality. Starting with a Glen Grant WB, we follow up with this Glen Mhor.
    N: Not many Glen Mhor around, especially this old with this vintage, a single cask at that bottled at CS. Immediately I get one of my 'jump out at you' instinctual smelling notes from the archive. It's crispy toilet paper, yep - from the mash no doubt and a smell memory from the late 1970’s. Plenty of leather too, paper-mache fruits, heavy [oaked] porridge-malt, a little smoke [char most likely] and dark putty around mahogany window panes.
    T: Whereas the Glen Grant was thin yet translated as delicat], this Glen Mhor is thin yet forceful, not clumsy but a little heavy footed with an intense astringency, a little rough on development, salty definitely, pokey, heavy [again],….. And then it thins. Now with heathery-char with a light bitter-sour.
    F: Moving dry and tannic with a longer finish than the Glen Grant. A little austere witch-hazel into slightly burned oils and nettles.
    C: Not massively complex nor sophisticated, it does however have [a little like Mannochmore], its own austere charm. We conclude with this 1968 Highland Park WB
