Glen Mhor 1982 31 YO Cadenhead, 52,9 %
First ever review from Whisky Saga of a Glen Mohr (pronounced 'glen vor') whisky. Glen Mohr was a Highland distillery, with Loch Ness as it's water source. The distillery was established back in 1892, and ran continuously until the then owner, Diageo, closed it down in 1983. The buildings were demolished in 1986, and the site is now covered with shops.
The Glen Mhor 1982 31 YO Cadenhead was distilled 1982, and bottled July 2014. It was matured in a hogshead, and the outturn was 186 bottles. The independent bottler Cadenhead is the company behind this release.
This expression is part of the Cadenhead series which is sold through their own webshop and the Cadenhead stores.
Nose (22/25): Sweet and fruity, with a slight edge to it. I think the edge is something slightly bitter or sour, which brings my mind to grapefruit. Other elements here include dark fruits, ginger, cinnamon, citrus and vanilla.
Taste (22/25): Mild fruits, white pepper, ginger, camphor, and oak spices. It has a fizzy, full bodied, and rich mouth feel. Not quite sure if I am imagining things here, but I feel there is a slight note of smokiness here. An interesting development that only comes through after I have left the dram in the glass for a period of time.
Finish (21/25): A bit 'green' on the finish, cut grass and something herbal. Not very sweet anymore, but still fruity, rich and full bodied. A bit salty right at the end.
Balance (22/25): A cozy, dessert like dram.
