Product Description

Region: Highland

Strength: 47.1%

Volume: 700ml

Half a century in the making, this very special bottle of whisky is one of just two in New Zealand, taken from a cask of Glen Mhor, first laid down in 1965 and bottled after 50 years of maturating in the cask. The history behind Glen Mhor is facinating, and though it was seldom bottled as a malt, it remained a key whisky for the Mackinlay blend until its closure and demolition in the early 80's. Glen Mhor's whisky faded into the history books until it was discovered in 2007 that Ernest Shackleton had burried cases of Mackinlay's single malt (from Glen Mhor) under his hut at Cape Royds.

This Glen Mhor, distilled on 09/12/1965 was matured initially in a refill sherry butt and stayed there for 42 years before being finished (a secondary maturation) in an Oloroso sherry cask for a further 8 years. This is the oldest Glen Mhor ever bottled, and quite one of the rarest whiskies in our shop.

Please note: Due to only two bottles being available in New Zealand, this is limited to one per customer.
