1978 Gordon & Macphail Glen Mhor Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
$699. 00 Bottle
Built in 1892 by John Birnie, Glen Mhor (pronounced 'Glen Vawr' and meaning 'Great Glen') was the sister distillery to Glen Albyn for a time. Although Glen Albyn was over 50 years older, Glen Mhor was considered to produce the better whisky and its quality won over many fans including Neil Gunn, the famous author who was stationed there as an excise man in the 1920's. He wrote the book "Whisky and Scotland" in the 1930's and described Glen Mhor with enthusiasm. In 1972, William Birnie (the son of John Birnie, then 80 years old) sold Glen Mhor and Glen Albyn to DCL. The distillery was finally closed along with Glen Albyn in 1983 when United Distillers wound up many of their small operations. Finally it was demolished in 1986. A Co-op store now exists where the Glen Mhor distillery used to be. There will be obvious collector appeal to this cask strength release from reputable independent bottlers, Gordon & Macphail. One bottle only to sell. No tasting notes available.
