Review by The Singleton of Glen Ord

Colour

Rich old amber.

Nose

Aromas of walnuts, polished antique oak lead into a whole bowl of dried fruits followed by ginger biscuits, and a honeyed sweetness cut by cleansing freshness.

Palate

Very full and cooling. A splendid mouth-coating richness with elegant orange oil and rich fruit. Becoming drying and appetising, with notes of chocolate truffle.

Finish

Full, long and finely detailed, with clear cedar notes against a smooth backdrop of fine, silky chocolate.

Conclusion

Less spicy, more mature, slightly darker in colour, and deeper in flavour than the 12-year-old; the house style of the distillery, beautifully presented.

Note

Best enjoyed neat or with a drop of water.
