Glen Mhor Distillery ceased operations in 1983 and the brand slowly goes into oblivion.
More than few young whisky drinkers have never had a chance to taste that malt, and some never will. Glen Mhor made a very strong impression on Neil Gunn, the Scottish poet and pioneer whisky writer, who for a period of time worked as an Excise Officer at the distillery. “Until a man has had a luck to chance upon a perfectly matured malt, he does not really know what whisky is” – he praised Glen Mhor malt. Glen Mhor 1975 is that kind of whisky – aged for 34 years in cask no. 6034 and presented in hand-blown decanter as part of the Duncan Taylor prestigious Tantalus range.
