Glen Mhor

United Kingdom, Scotland
The distillery never released an official bottling. Though it was possible to get a Glen Mhor Whisky from the UD Rare Malts range. General notes on the Whisky imply that Whisky is spicy and sherried with lots of fruit notes. However since they are not 'official' it is not easy to tell general profile of the Whiskies.

Member's favorites from Glen Mhor
Glen Mhor was located in Inverness, sourcing its water from Loch Ness, like Glen Albyn. It was located directly on the Caledonian Canal.

The construction started in 1892, by John Birnie and James Mackinlay of Charles Mackinlay & Co., both blenders from Leith. Birnie worked at Glen Albyn a couple of years before Glen Mhor was founded. In 1920, after years of collaboration, Glen Mhor bought Glen Albyn completely.

In 1972, John's son William Birnie sold the distilleries to Distillers Company Limited. But in 1983 the Whisky market was on a decline, so DCL decided to close the distillery.

Glen Mhor's peat source was Dava Moor, and the distillery had one wash still and one spirit still. What made Glen Mhor different was their malting process. In 1954, the distillery became the first distillery to use the Saladin Box process. However, in 1980 it was decommissioned due to high running costs.
