The Breton distillery Glann ar Mor (which means ‘by the sea’) which closed operations on the 15th of August 2015, produced this single malt with Maris Otter barley. This is an ancient experimental variety of which is claimed that it adds rich aromas. Curious about that.
The nose is very fruity and a touch waxy. It even reminds me of Clynelish at first. Wow! Loads of apricots, lime, grapefruit and a hint of leather and flints. Mildly floral. Some vanilla. This is good!
It is a bit oily and quite picquant on the palate. Think peper and ginger, but also some liquorice. The fruit returns with the emphasis on grapefruit and oranges, but also loads of sugared lemon rind. Pears. A bit zesty. It turns a touch better, but never over the top. Hints of apricots and coconut.
The finish can be called long, with some oak leaving the mouth dry. Very nice expression of this sadly closed distillery. Thanks, Anverness!
