GLEN MHOR 40 YEAR OLD 1982 PRIVATE COLLECTION SINGLE MALT WHISKY
John Birnie and James Mackinlay commissioned Charles C. Doig to design Glen Mhor Distillery which was found in 1892 and constructed at Muirton Basin on the Caledonian Canal in Inverness. Glen Mhor Distillery was a Highland malt whisky distillery equipped with two stills and one of the pioneering distilleries to release single malt whisky back in the 1960s. Closed in 1983, dismantled in 1986, demolished 1988 and now one of Scotland’s lost malt whisky distilleries. With stock dwindling bottlings of Glen Mhor are highly prized particularly those released by Gordon & MacPhail.
Rich sherry influences with toasted hazelnuts and subtle milk chocolate. Morello cherry notes develop alongside sweet treacle toffee.
Intense stewed fruit leads to pressed apple and demera sugar. Raspberry compote combines with soft white pepper and a hint of dried tobacco.
A full finish with citrus and summer fruits.
