Glen Ord 10 years Hidden Spirit 2009-2010 20, 53.3%, cask: GO0920
● The dress.
Yellow gold, small trains of fine and slow drops.
● The nose, the first encounter with rice vinegar, sweet and sour sauce and orgeat syrup, go ahead, let it breathe.
The shallot vinaigrette.
A hint of tender caramel is making its way.
After a long dance, the nose finally opens with lemon juice, butter cake dough and almond.
Beeswax, royal jelly.
Time passes and the lemon takes up more and more space, becomes candied, recalling the lemon carton.
A little bit of coconut powder.
At the bottom of the hold, metal and rock, a dusty wood.
● In the mouth.
It is a voluminous and fatty whisky with a nice roundness, light woody side, a fine and tender caramel, the rise of lemon recalling that of the nose, the berlingot.
A light pineapple then the wax and the flowers before heading definitively towards minerality, metal, fresh water.
● the finish is rather short, going on wax with candied lemon and wood.
Long persistence on minerality, rock and tannins.
A rather surprising whisky with a particularly atypical, but rich nose.
We like it or not, a rather fine mouth, all round and fragrant.
It takes time.
I like it.
If you had to give it a subjective rating, you'd be an 85.
Very winey, sour oak, new furniture, new make, sour pear, very dry, a little boring.
Quite sulphury, big and full body, very oaky and drying
Long, bitter, drying, oaky, espresso.
- Very malty liquorice and leather on the nose, mixed with honey and lemon and an oily buttery palate. A bit of eucalyptus and mild peppery peat on the finish.
- oily drops on the glass wall. Scent: butter, no smoke, sweetness. Flavor (slightly diluted): intense, very light smoke at the beginning (pleasant), long finish, voluminous, honey, sweetness.
