Ord 27 yo 1962/1989 (55.4%, Cadenhead, distilled December) Colour: light amber. Nose: wow, now we’re talking! Superb fudge and praline, fresh vanilla stick, caramelised apples, sherry (fino). It gets very woody but in a nice way. Gets very spicy at the same time: pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, lots of clove… It then gets quite flowery, on fresh and dry lavender. Hints of cider apples… Just great, even if very influenced by the cask – a great one, that is. Mouth: bold and creamy attack, with lots of tannins – interesting ones. Very, very woody, that’s for sure. Lots of cinnamon and white pepper, liquid caramel. Some notes of bitter herbs, thyme, dried parsley… Some rubber. Too bad, it gets really too dry after a moment, which prevents me from rating this puppy more than 85 points. Maybe they should have bottled it earlier… So, 85 points for this old Ordie.
