  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    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.
