    ORD - BOUQUET, Glen Ord distillery, Samaroli, 22 yo (1962-1984), 58.0%, bottle # 617 of 720

    For this Nectar, thank you very much Yura Shcherbina and Ilya Zagumennykh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnrHtOYilD4&feature=share

    Molt is not from another planet, but simply from another life on another Universe!
    Silver and pearls! This is pure acacia honey, liquid like propolis, which flows from the celestial honeycomb and flows into my palm like a mountain stream of blessing. It explodes with every drop as a concentrate of something incomprehensibly holy. I don’t have enough words to express it all in my stupid testing and I don’t have enough understanding how to convey this subtle feeling of touching something truly divine.

    I do not know what kind of music is played in heaven, but this is something undoubtedly wonderful. And if Silvano hid his soul somewhere, then surely in this barrel. And maybe right now the old man is sitting with God, rolling something like that and laughing merrily at our frail attempts to find a good barrel today. Thank you, Maestro, through the layers of time we honor your great choice!

    24 + 25 + 24 + 24 = 97

    Because the perfumes, the unions, the persistence are unique

    The aroma is sweet and powerful: old oak, varnish, wax and propolis, resinous wood (subtle and varied with notes of incense and sandalwood), sweet tropical fruits, spices, cream fudge, toffee, cream biscuits, eclairs. Awesome!

    The taste is spicy, moderately sweet with bitterness: astringent oak, notes of wax and honey, pepper, sour-sweet fruit, creamy fudge.

    The finish is long, oak, resinous: wood and varnish, notes of minerality, spices, wax and propolis. In the development of dry and astringent.

    Conclusion. Well balanced old school whisky. Layered and powerful. The fragrance is of the highest quality and so rich that you don't want to drink, but to breathe in forever. The taste is velvety and deep. Water is not required. Major League.

    Immaculate in any way, just lack a little bit of surprise.
    • Nose
      It is just perfect. A classic 60s malt with all the typical flavours. Wax and high-end oak, a top notch bourbon, tropical fruits, fresh melon, treacle, demerara rum and a touch of new oak.
    • Taste
      Strong and powerful, fresh apple and lime, very sweet and waxy, a touch of medicine (cough syrup), fresh herbs and sweet melons.
    • Finish
      Long, melons and herbs.

    Climbs up the nose like wasabi, rich and complex, balanced fruitiness and sweetness with sherry wood, it's already legendary and fulfills all expectations - great stuff!
    • Nose
      97 97
      Intense, rich, dried fruits, raisins, roasted nuts coated with acacia honey, figs, dates, apricots, spices, cloves, hints of cinnamon, also a slight seabreeze, whiffs of iodine and smoke, finest sherry wood and old books (good ones) - superb!
    • Taste
      96 96
      Very punchy, oily, subtle sweetness, more dried fruits, more old books, hints of soot, cigars, tobacco, more fine notes of sherry wood, spices and spicy, littel bit of burnt sugar and nuts - excellent!
    • Finish
      95 95
      Long, warm, zesty, little bit more woody but not drying - great!

    Note by
    Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:


    Glen Ord
    1962/1984 (58%, Samaroli ‘Bouquet’)  

    pure gold. Nose: oh, we have another winner here, it seams.

    similar globally, but a little less fruity and certainly more resinous (close
    to almond milk and propolis here) and nutty. Lots of marzipan as well, roasted
    peanuts, beeswax, furniture polish… And then we have more or less the same
    superb notes of sandalwood… Another amazing nose, impossible to say which one
    is the nicest. Both are simply wonderful. Mouth: an extraordinary attack, even
    punchier than the new OB, and also creamier and sweeter. It’s the same
    distillery, obviously… Again a little less fruit and freshness and more waxy
    and resinous flavours. Notes of cough syrup, marzipan, lots of dried ginger and
    smoked tea… Sort of a bitterness (dried herbs) and a long finish again, waxy
    and on lemon skin again. In short, this one is
    extremely good again, but it’s maybe just a tad less balanced and complex than
    the OB. I said 'a tad'… 92 points

    ORD Bouquet 1962 22yo / 58% THE GREAT BOUQUET BY SAMAROLI A wonderful old incense, a complex aged incense such as apricot with a firm acidity, a strongly spread aroma differs in dimension Overwhelmingly powerful, aged sense of acidity and sweetness are complicated and rose at higher dimension such as fruit, malty, woody Tasted flavors Feel the sweetness of the wheat firmly, penetrate into the tongue A deeper and strong body finally lasts for a long and wonderful finish. Glenn aard named the Great Bouquet 1962. Legendary bottle. Bottling 1984, aged 22 years, fragrance and taste all the elements of single malt balanced in high dimension. For these bottles, the tasting comment is the most difficult, I suffer from languageization ... Both fragrance and taste are wonderful and complicated anyhow, and besides, it is a great product with excellent strength, accompanied by high proof 's powerfulness. Spring bank I drank when I visited last time was Samorori, but I was really doing a lot of bottling. The joy of meeting this bottle in this place ... It is the best night. http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/distilled1973/41402559.html
