Gleann Mor Carsebridge Tasting Notes

Posted: June 5, 2017 in Carsebridge, Scottish Grain Whisky

Gleann Mor ‘A Rare Find’ Carsebridge 1964 (52 year old) 47.1%

Refill Sherry cask 89160

Dist: Jan 1964 Btl: May 2016/ Tasted: Feb 2017

A nose of succulent vanilla oak accented dried fruit. Nutty and slightly toasty with hints of dusty spice. There is a subtle Cognac-esque ranico and developing sweet spice notes. Very laid back, subtle and elegant.

The palate is elegant and nutty with a subtle Cognac-esque dried fruit character, herbs and dusty vanilla oak. The oak develops some hints of coffee and coconut on the middle, but not a huge amount of sherry character though. Like the nose it is subtle but it has an almost malty depth and a good complexity. Lovely coconutty and milk chocolate finish with lingering, lightly spiced grainy dried fruit. Now that’s an impressive finish!
