10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.40 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Gris: I won't be called a liar by you. Take that back. False accusations are absolutely beyond the pale.

    For anyone interested, this bottler Gleann Mor has a Facebook page. It's called Firkin Gin. That's where I asked about the provenance of the liquid and the two differing bottles, and that's where I got the answer from. Screenshots can be provided at request, and anyone wanting to do so can go there and ask them yourself how things are.

    Gris: I was wondering why you'd care so much about a single person's opinion on a site where the content is 100% made of opinions, but now I see you have this bottle for sale on the marketplace. Duuuuuude....

    Thermidor : Yeah and i've got 2 bottles like this one (and i'm selling one at a lower price than the average value) and i tried THIS ONE while you DIDN'T and admit it... So I know what i'm speaking about, and YOU DIDN'T ;) And I personnaly just give notes to the bottles i've tried and not to "bottles like the one i tried but not really the same but same whisky, well i'm saying what someone said to me and you'll have to trust me, and that's just a different bottle, really... But i tried it... Well, i didn't really tried it, but i tried it" XD
    By the way, i'll say it again, if the bottle you tried doesn't exist on WB, create a page for it instead of giving your opinion here...
    And you're still the only one giving it a so bad note...
    "[this is the 3rd and final edit on this message, I promise]" Mh Mh... XD

    Thermidor: Just say what the fuck you want, arguing what the fuck you want, that doesn't change anything to the fact that you've tasted another bottling (with a possible problem and it fucking looks like there was a fucking problem with your sample!) and that what you're thinking about it has NOTHING to do here! That's just not the fucking same bottle you tried! Is it so hard to understand for your small mind and admit it? By the way, you're still the only one here to give it a so bad note. So are you pretending you are the only one who's right here, speaking about a bottle you didn't taste? We all here want facts about a bottling and that's a fact that you didn't tried this one.

    By the way, it looks like you don't like this kind of whisky (almost only peated whisky in your collection, and not specially the best ones) so, stop drink it instead of giving them that kind of notes...

    And STFU, thx XD

    Read this again until understanding it: "if the bottle you tried doesn't exist on WB, create a page for it instead of giving your opinion here...". HS.

    By the way, you're still the only one here who didn't really appreciate this whisky...

  6. Gris scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Thermidor: Well, maybe there was a problem with the bottle you tasted, maybe the cork and seal were different (as they already don't have the same shape), maybe was it opened for too long with more than 2/3 of air... Or, if you really rather like a 40yo OB Glenfarclas (which is waaaaay more expensive and doesn't deserve this price at all, and it doesn't deserve more than 88/100, i think i rather like their 30yo!) than the whisky i tasted from THIS bottle, we'll never understand each other ^^ And, personnaly, i don't even give 78/100 to an "ininteresting" whisky...
    Anyway, you should give this note to the bottle you tasted and NOT to this one, and if the bottle doesn't exist here, create it! ;)

    Thermidor, you "think that" but you just don't know... And you give it a "bad" appreciation without tasting it, i mean, you didn't taste THIS one... WTF?

    Gris, I originally was a bit unfair and asked you to prove the bottles are not the same. Because it's bad manners to ask people to prove a negative for you, I approached Gleann Mor myself. Here is their answer:
    "Hi, same liquid - just different packaging."

    The bottle I tasted this from had a different shape than the one in the picture (this one: https://www.scotchwhiskyauctions.com/auctions/123_the-85th-auction/215566_gleann-mor-a-rare-find-40-year-old-blended-whisky/ ), but the labels and stats were all the same, so I think it's the same whisky.
    The word 'overaged' comes to mind. Apart from what tannins and secondary aromas it had scavenged from the casks over the years, there was not much there. Thin and uninteresting distillate. Perhaps some understrength casks were saved with a stronger one? If so, the operation wasn't entirely a success. A far cry from an "industry standard" 40yo OB like Glenfarclas.

    Tasting Notes by
    Gleann Mór
    Nose: Deep, rich and nutty; plenty of malt and aged sherry fruits.
    Nice and layered with good complexity. Gentle oak notes with a damp
    dunnage background.
    Palate: Gently spiced, but easy and thick on the palate hold it on
    your tongue for a long while and enjoy. There’s plenty of caramelized
    brown sugar along with mashed up winter fruits and a very small dollop
    of cream on top. Old antique malt.

    Finish: After a few seconds you get a lovely warm and gentle hug of
    rich christmas fruity goodness on your chest while the slightly leathery
    old fruits stay on your palate.
