  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This is a rather interesting Glen Ord. All other Ord's have a similarity in which a very distinct flavour and scent is found within. That grainy and malty feeling like cask strains, grassy and herbaceous scents paired with a soft, light herbal note. On top of that, some sweetness derived from yeast.

    However, this one is missing that distinct component. Its herbal, yes; its malty sweet and refreshing, no.

    Not working too well with water for me, but as is, it`s not bad.

    Transferring previous Note (2011.12.30) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      straight away a nice balance of somewhat undefined woody,
      fruity, salty/savoury & mineral notes with a slight off-note of
      dishwasher liquid (83)
      A bit later: wood & fruit seem to come out
      as the winners after a very short time, a nice malty sweetness comes
      through now as well, lemon juice, orange blossom o, butter-cream
      (Frankfurter Kranz) o, old brown leather o, ozone o/-,  also still a
      mineral and salty-bitter touch to it which seems to have been the
      dishwashing liquid (88)
      Later again: fruityness w a vanilla accelerates - fresh red plums +/o, passionfruit. (87)
      W
      Water: Quite fresh. Fruity & dishwasher notes fuse into half
      peach-flavoured dishwasher liquid and half peach-schnaps. hm. Behind all
      that peach, some sweet malt still with even a bit of distant
      smoke/charred wood and sandy/mineral notes. (84)
    • Taste
      a bit on the
      flat side here, feels thin & spirit prevails. Some malt, bright
      wood, lemony & some distant chocolate notes  (82)
      Later: gained much more flavour & sweetness, stronger sweet malt, vanilla & wood, plus a creamy/lactose feel to it. (84)
      W Water: More of that peach ester. Malt sweetness, some bright wood, feels a bit sweetener sweet. (80)
    • Finish
      quite faint but has a lot going on. first fesh fruit (apples, ?) &
      wood, then some vanilla & wood, drifting into a multi colour
      selection of Haribo Gummybears.  (86)
      Later: sweeter, more of
      everything, but not as complex & balanced as it seemed/hinted to
      before, alcohol warmth (not spirity here), some more wood, a toasted
      cereal touch, fruits (cooked ?), white chocolate, distant wood smoke,
      burnt chocolate pudding  (87)
      W water: more peach ester & spirit
      plus a bit of wood and malt. Not really faulted, but all notes seem to
      standing by itself rather than coming together, and neither of the notes
      is that exciting... (76)
