This Speyside Blended Malt expression is utterly outstanding and really highlights the knowledge and expertise of those working at Gleann Mór. Creating a blend is no mean feat, but creating a premium blend like this is a whole different ball-game altogether.
Created from a superb range of Speyside malt whiskies distilled in 1978, this fine blend was then matured for 40 whole years before being bottled in 2018 and it delivers on the nose, palate and finish, providing a drinking experience to remember for a lifetime along the way.
On the nose it brings juicy fruit, gently spiced stewed apples and pears, sweet demerara sugar and new leather, before the palate follows with candied orange, salted caramel, sweet chocolates and gentle hints of peppery spice. The medium finish brings things to a close with another burst of citrus fruits.
Not only is this one of the finest blended whiskies we have ever tried, but it also easily rivals our favourite single malt expressions in terms of depth, balance and all-round drinking experience.
Much like the rest of the Rare Find Range, it’s highly limited in number, with just 140 cask strength bottles produced.
