The oldest of The Singleton distilleries and the only Highlander in the family, Glen Ord is the product of the White Burn’s water and the Black Isle’s barley. But this beautifully rich Single Malt Scotch Whisky is anything but grey – zinging instead with the vibrancy of dark berries, cherries and blackcurrants.
Fresh fruits (fuji apples, oranges, raspberries), nut oil (almond and walnut), creme fraiche, malt, a touch of honey, gentle oak, and floral green grassy notes.
Dark chocolate, dried fruits, nuts, citrus and malt, floral honey, and oak.
Cranberries, sherry and oak tannins, and a light floral-green taste with orange peel.
The nose promises a lot but it is basically all downhill from there. It’s easy to drink, and there is nothing wrong with it.
