G&M, Private Collection, Glen Mhor 1982 (700ml)


Gordon & MacPhail, Private Collection,

Glen Mhor 1982 (40YO)

50.8% ABV


Passion for single malt Scotch whisky has been at the heart of Gordon & MacPhail's family business for four generations. This range is an ever-changing collection of unique perspectives on distilleries’ own bottlings, non-chill-filtered single cask and small batch expressions bottled at cask strength and exceptional one-offs. For the malt whisky explorer, it promises a journey of discovery through different flavours, finishes, strengths and vintages.

Built in 1892, Glen Mhor Distillery (pronounced ‘glen vwar’) was, both in ownership and physical location, the sister distillery to Glen Albyn. The Inverness distillery was the first 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. Unfortunately for its loyal consumers, the distillery was closed in 1983 and demolished three years later.

Tasting Notes

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

Finish: A full finish with citrus and summer fruit.
