Triple matured for richness and depth of flavour, the first Singleton Glen Ord in this series is a 14 yo given a unique and ingeniously complicated five cask maturation and marrying process. This is thought to be the first time that five different woods have been so used to mature a Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Bright polished brass with amber lights.
Soft and gentle with appetising aromas of baked apple and sweet orange fruit, beeswax and spice.
Light to medium. Gently coating.
Smooth, sweet and spicy, with some acidity, even a shake of salt. Rich in mature fruit notes.
Long, with an enduring warmth.
Make: The Singleton Glen Ord
Age: 14 years old
Strength: 57.6% ABV
Bright polished brass with amber lights; very fine beading.
Soft and gentle, with appetising aromas of baked apple and orange zest, beeswax, crystalized orange and cedar-like spice. Grows sweeter, with hints of brown sugar and sponge cake; then fruity, with red apple and honey. Finally, embracing warmth.
Smooth, sweet and spicy, with some acidity, even a shake of salt. Fruity, with a lightly smoky-savoury edge. Raisin-rich, with smooth barley sugar, before growing powerful and mint-clean; then drier and lightly chalky.
Long, with an enduring warmth. Clean and pleasingly bitter, with a gentle, cleansing pine-dryness.
