The Singleton of Glen Ord 12 Years Old On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Smoky Rich Delicate Light

Region

A creamy, cleansing Highland malt.

Appearance

Bright and clear; an intense amber.

Nose

Winy top notes rapidly evolve into plummy fruits offset by zesty, oily orange peel. Then, rich caramel toffees, chocolate and malty biscuits.

Body

Light to medium bodied, delightfully coating.

Palate

Subtly coating, with a clever balance of gentle fruit tartness and gingery, rich, sweet malt. Becoming lighter and cleaner on the palate.

Finish

A beautiful balance of lightly cleansing fruit notes and gingery toasted maltiness; a smooth texture, like good chocolate slowly melting on the tongue.

Information:

Distillery: Glen OrdTM

Age: 12 years old

Strength: 40% ABV

Place of Origin: Muir of Ord

Region: Northern Highlands

Taste:

in brief… A fruity, well-composed Singleton with flavours of preserved plum and ginger that’s perfectly balanced for everyday drinking. 

in a sentence… Contrives to be both light and smooth without compromising any depth of flavour or fullness of palate, on which there’s a good balance of cleansing fruit acidity and creamy rich toffee.

Nose:

Unhesitating and substantial. Initially winy topnotes rapidly evolve into fresher, sweeter plummy fruits offset by zesty, oily orange peel. Then, there are aromas of rich caramel toffees and chocolate accompanied by malty biscuits.

Palate:

Immediate, smooth and cooling. Subtly coating, with a clever balance of gentle fruit tartness (preserved plums) and gingery, rich, sweet malt. Becoming gradually lighter and cleaner on the palate with faint, appetising late notes of toasted coconut.

Finish:

Medium in length and very, very rounded. A beautiful balance of lightly cleansing fruit notes and gingery toasted maltiness; a smooth texture, like caramel toffees or good chocolate slowly melting on the tongue. Late notes of cocoa and cool mint.

Insights from some of the best in the business

"Honeyed malt and milk chocolate on the nose, with a hint of orange. These characteristics carry over onto the sweet, easy-drinking palate, long with a biscuity note. Subtly drying, with a medium-length, spicy finish."

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.133
