Tasting notes by Serge Valentin (WhiskyFun.com)

Glen Mhor 28 yo 1976/2005 (51.9%, Rare Malts Selection) 

Colour: straw.

Nose: starts very flowery, on nectar, yellow flowers from the fields (dandelions, buttercups etc.), with also some notes of beer, malt, dampened grains and whiffs of cold ashes, fireplace… Quite some marzipan, fresh almonds and hazelnuts, a little olive oil, paraffin, mashed potatoes, dairy cream… Getting then a little farmy (wet hay, wet clay). A very ‘natural’ expression, maybe a little austere - no make-up and no bling-bling, as almost always in this series. For aficionados only? Let’s see…

Mouth: it’s bold and punchy but not pungent at all, with both an impressively enjoyable bitterness (it’s not that often that such bitterness is an asset) and a huge waxiness. Add to that a rather peaty feeling and something very herbal, vegetal (tea, apple and walnut skins) and quite some salt (even diet salt). What’s quite astonishing is the fact that it all blends nicely and… austerely, with a nice ‘compactness’. A very good surprise – I often have problems with Glen Mhor – even if this one is maybe a little too ‘intellectual’, and not only a matter of pure pleasure.

88 points.
