    I like it very much. A rather heavy representative of its kind and the influence of the wine barrel is not over it. Unfortunately, the more time passes, the less round it becomes.

      Although I already had a couple of very harmonious Clynelish and HP today, it can still keep up in terms of harmony.
      The aromas are rather heavy bourbon barrel notes, deep and dark, rotten wood and forest bee honey, but the wine barrel still brings a good acidity here. A thick intensity that is not too overpowering.

      The more time passes, the more the wine barrel is there. Still good, but the harmony and balance is lost. Down from 88 to 86 points. Now a thick, simple sweetness at the back.

      On the palate you can already tell the 12 years with the more than 55 percent, but it doesn't burn and brings the aromas across rather powerfully.
      The sour notes from the wine finish constantly battle the sweet flavors and it's always on the brink that one side will predominate too clearly, but in the end both sides will always be equal.
      As time goes by, more woody acid flavors come through. Here only very solid.

      A little too round and strong. I don't like it that much anymore, but it's still solid and reasonably enjoyable.

    So the alcohol is very present.
    More bourbon than wine.

    Slightly sharp on the palate. Alcohol here too. Water in my opinion mandatory. I still don't have much wine.

    New one for me. Never had a Glen Ord I don’t think. Made this a random purchase when I was in the Cadenhead Shop in Campbeltown last weekend. I went with the recommendation of the shop assistant. Overall pleasant but hard to plot on my enjoyment chart. Not offensive in any way but not much grabbing my attention either. Maybe it will improve now the bottle has been opened.

      Subtle, strawberry, dust, earth notes.

      Medium and dry, nothing really grips, some red grape, red apple and granola. Bit of an odd one this.

    A strange malt with an off taste from the wine
