Glen Mhor 1976 28 Years – Rare Malts Selection
The “Rare Malts Selection” is a series of single malt whiskies from casks of closed distilleries or from distilleries that do not market bottlings independently. These include Rosebank, Linkwood and Port Ellen, for example. They are normally cask strength bottlings that were distilled in the 1960s, 1970s or early 1980s and laid down to mature for at least 18 years. The series appeared from around 1995 to 2005 and was marketed by independent bottler Diageo. The series has now been discontinued, being replaced by the annual “Special Releases”. The individual Rare Malt bottlings are highly sought after by collectors.
Glen Mhor is one of the so-called “Lost Distilleries”. It was founded in 1892 by John Birnie, the manager of Glen Albyn, and John Mackinlay. The final distillation took place here in 1983 because the distillery was no longer profitable and renovation work had become necessary. A supermarket now stands on the site.
