Glen Mhor 'Gordon & MacPhail' 1982 #72 40YO Private Collection 700ml

Built-in 1892. The Inverness distillery was the first distillery to experiment with Saladin boxes – a mechanical malting device widely used until the 1960s when distilleries started to outsource malted barley more and more – and continued to use these until the maltings were closed in 1980. A popular single malt, Glen Mhor found low-key fame as a bottling in its own right, quite an accomplishment considering the market was dominated by blends.


Nose: Rich sherry influences with toasted hazelnuts and subtle milk chocolate. Morello cherry notes develop alongside sweet treacle toffee.

Taste: Intense stewed fruit leads to pressed apple and demerara sugar. Raspberry compote combines with soft white pepper and a hint of dried tobacco.

Finish: A full finish with citrus and summer fruit.

Alc: 50.8%
