  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Much better than I was expecting, not exciting or anything but easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Buttery, pineapple, apple and butterscotch with faint orange notes.

      I like it
    • Taste
      Quite some zest to start with but there is also some bitterness, luckily the bitterness goes and some orange takes its place.

      Peaches in syrup, butterscotch and a little treacle tart
    • Finish
      Approaching medium

  4. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    N: Dry yet cloggy, fruity [with over-ripe apples & tomatoes] and oaky [bourbon=sherried] malt, a little sawdust, a hint/suggestion of peat -at times], grassy for sure, smoked ham,…. and a little ‘Irish’ in style. I like it, its pleasing.
    T: Some pepperiness has me reaching for the pipette, but not too much at first as theres also a rounded softness to it too helped somewhat by some E150a for sure. There’s no getting away from some astringency though and a savoury=bitterness for sure [E150 again?], not too clever. Add lots [50%] of water for a fresher, savoury>sour, waxy, aniseed maltiness which is the top of this Ord’s game. Time allows this Ord to soften significantly. the astringency softens a tad with a lighter bitter=savoury>sweet occupying the storyline from now on - also with lingering greenish & dried grasses and a softer, sweeter mouthfeel.
    F: Moves towards some sweeter grain notes surrounded by oak, somewhat dry with a short savoury=sour finish.
    C: Just ok, certainly not offensive and even positively cordial. Lets move on to a much older, single cask bottling WB.

    Scores a C- [80]

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    This one goes excellent with a good coffee, a lovely malt from a nice distillery.
    • Nose
      Soft, flowery, malty fruitiness, sherry, some smokiness, slightly dry and a caramel sweetness.
    • Taste
      Spicy start, creamy and a light sweetness, woody/peaty.
    • Finish
      Short, warm, soft and smooth.

  6. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    It's so boring. The smell is so spirity. The taste and finish are malty and oaky, fun? No..
    • Nose
      Very strong, I couldn't smell anything for 10min, so much alcohol.
    • Taste
      Oak, dry oak, nothing else.
    • Finish
      Malty and oaky, medium long.
