Glen Mhor (say Glen Vawr) means Great Valley in Gaelic. She was owned by Diageo that shut it down in 1983 during its big round of closures. For production, water was taken from Loch Ness. This bottling by G&M, the best known Scottish bottler from Elgin, contains a liquid that was distilled in 1979 and bottled after 21 years.

Hmmm, the nose is weak. Loads of sweet malt and some fruit in the shape of pears, but not much else. Some vanilla and apple juice. Slightly bitter.

It is a bit oily on the palate and softly seasoned. This is much better than the nose. Fruity on apples and oranges, a little bit zesty. Nice hint of woodspice. Beeswax and vanilla. Not bad.

The finish is rather short and light. Hint of smoke.

The nose and finish were rather ordinary, while on the palate this was a pretty good whisky. Thanks, Arnout!
