Smoky Rich Delicate Light

A comforting, warming Highland malt.

Hints of melon and summer citrus fruit, revealing firm waxy notes and rich floral aromas. Spices develop into appetising cinnamon and ginger-spiced biscuits.

Body

Light to medium in body, gently coating.

Melon fruit and zesty orange-oil fuse with sultanas and spiced biscuits; becoming crystallized ginger coated in an exquisite chocolate creaminess.

Rich choux pastry with cooling thick cream; late toasted notes and dry cocoa powder. Finally, all that richness builds to a gloriously warming conclusion.

Information:

Age: 15 years old

Strength: 40% ABV

Place of Origin: Muir of Ord

Region: Northern Highlands

Taste:

in brief… A rich, complex and confident Singleton with hints of melon, which reveals itself at its own very elegant pace.

in a sentence… Early fresh citrus fruit and rustic waxy notes mature into a rich, soft creaminess offset by aromatic spices before arriving at a comforting, warming conclusion, ideally after dinner!

Nose:

A cautious start with soft hints of melon and summer citrus fruit, opening up to reveal firm waxy notes and rich floral aromas; a whole garden of geraniums and roses. Later, warming spices develop into appetising cinnamon and ginger-spiced biscuits.

Palate:

Gently coating. At first, layers of ripe melon fruit and zesty orange-oil freshness fuse with sultanas and spiced biscuits; then it all becomes much richer with crystallized ginger and ginger biscuits coated in an exquisite chocolate creaminess with hints of vanilla.

Finish:

Of medium length and beautifully rounded. Rich choux pastry with cooling thick cream; late toasted notes and dry cocoa powder sprinkled on a bitter chocolate tart. Finally, all that richness builds to a gloriously warming conclusion.

Expert Reviews
Insights from some of the best in the business

"Nose: ah yes, I’ve never tried this baby before and I must say I find what I usually like in older official Glen Ords, this beeswax, honey, apricots, ripe plums and even a little sandalwood and incense… A great surprise so far. Maybe there’s a little dust as well in the background? Cloves? Mouth: rounded, honeyed, malty. It’s a light dram again but it isn’t weak. Quite a lot of cloves as well, something perfumy (orange blossom?), kumquats and quite some brown sugar. Decent body. Finish: medium length, with some smoked tea (lapsang souchong) and a faint earthiness, which gives this baby a nice signature. Comments: very honest and loyal, and the bottle is niiiiiiice…"
