The Singleton Of Glen Ord 18 Years Old
 40%    |    70cl

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.

The Singleton of Glen Ord 18 Years Old On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Smoky Rich Delicate Light

Region

A taste of Speyside sophistication.

Appearance

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.

Body

Medium bodied, rich in the mouth.

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.

Information:

Distillery: Glen OrdTM

Age: 18 years old

Strength: 40% ABV

Place of Origin: Muir of Ord

Region: Northern Highlands

Taste:

in brief… A very sophisticated and well-structured old Singleton that balances a rich fruitiness with a gentle aromatic dryness.

in a sentence… Beautifully finished and leaning toward dryness while maintaining an enduring, and appetising, sweetness, this combination making it wonderful with intense, hard cheeses, with which it creates a more-ish array of faintly woody, nutty, sweet and salty, creamy and honeyed notes.

Nose:

Complex and well balanced. Smooth and unctuous at first, yet hinting at an intriguing dryness to come on the palate. Aromas of walnuts and polished antique oak lead into a whole bowl of dried fruits (apricots, blackcurrants, apples), followed by ginger biscuits. Later, a smoothly honeyed sweetness is cut by the cleansing freshness of crisp, newly peeled pears.

Palate:

Very full and cooling. A splendid mouth-coating richness with elegant orange oil and rich fruit (perhaps sliced mangos and rich cream). 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. Becomes leaner, with a memory of gingery malt; that dryness is now offset by a lingering sweetness in a polished conclusion.
