From Collins Pocket Reference 'Whisky' :
This distillery was built between 1892 and 1894 by Mackinlay and Birnie who were later to own the neighbouring Glen Albyn Distillery; John Birnie had previously managed Glen Albyn. Glen Mhor used the same water (from Loch Ness) and peat as its neighbour, but their whiskies were quite different. It was one of the first distilleries in Scotland to introduce mechanical malting in the late 1940's. It was also one of the Scottish Malt Distillers closed down by the Distillers Company Ltd. in 1983, and was demolished in 1988.
Comment : Smooth and medium bodied Glen Mhor has a plesant, subtle sweetness complemented by a dryish, heatery aftertaste.
Here's a little funster about Glen Mhor. :
Q: How much Mohr could a Glen Mohr Mohr if a Glen Mohr could Glen Mohr?
A: You have clearly had one dram too many.
Sadly, the demolition of the distillery, along with the neighbouring Glen Albyn distillery, followed in 1986 to make way for residential development.

Glen Mhor Distillery,Speyside
Purists pronounce Glen Mhor the Gaelic way, "Glen Vawr". The distillery was built in 1892 in Inverness.
Just as in the case of the nearby Glen Albyn, the water source was the famous Loch Ness. It was one of several ditilleries at which the poet, novelist and pioneering whisky-writer Neil Gunn worked as an exciseman. In “Scotch Missed”, Brian Townsend writes that Gunn was inspired by Glen Mhor to let slip his observation that "until a man has had the luck to chance upon a perfectly matured malt, he does not really know what whisky is".
The distillery has been demolished in 1986 and a shopping centre has been built on the site. Glen Mhor can still be found in independent bottlers' collections.
