Whisky Reviews for Glen Ord 1965 JW
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.15 points
- Beautiful nose, old but unobtrusive wood and leather notes, while sweet and mild. Otherwise spicy (Indian), but a bit thin, almost watery. The barrel is not as present as you would expect for almost 40 years.
- [August, 2005] Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 176 that I bought for 139 Euro in July, 2005.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5. My notes state a nicely balanced flavours and aromas profile both in the nose and on the palate with lots of fruits, spices and a hint of peat.
- Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:
Glen Ord 39 yo 1965/2004 (41%, JWWW Old Train Line, cask #1373, 222 bottles) Colour: pale gold. Nose: hey, lots happening here! It starts right away on quite some camphor and cigar box (with nice vitoles inside), shoe polish, metal polish, ‘grandma’s cupboard’, very old liqueurs… Classy stuff, for sure, with these antiquated smells we cherish. Develops superbly on forest after the rain, mushrooms, moss, wet leaves… There is some peat in the background, beeswax, a little thyme… The wood’s coming through now but it’s a rather beautiful one. High end sawdust (if that exists). Very complex and superbly balanced, this is why we’re into whisky. Mouth: maybe a bit dry at the attack, the wood has its say right from the start here. A mix of spices from the wood (white pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg) and both dried and crystallised fruits (mostly bananas in fact). Nice caramel, candy sugar, crystallised angelica, liquorice… Excellent balance, this is very satisfying and drinkable, the oak being of the best kind indeed. Finish: rather long, very liquoricy now, lemony (skin). In short, maybe not extremely complex but nothing but pleasure in your glass here. 91 points
