This Glen Ord has been discontinued for a long time and therefor has become pretty expensive. Around 130 EUR in fact. And let’s be honest, after reading these tasting notes you’ll agree that it is not worth it by far.
Innocent nose on orange juice, butterscotch and freshly cut pineapple. Some wood shavings and freshly cut grass. For a second it reminds me a bit of a young Irish whisky. Pleasant, but nothing special.
The malt is a touch creamy with immediately a sweet and sour mix of caramel, oranges and peach and some quinine. The green grass lingers. From the second sip forward it becomes a tad sweeter and the bitterness slowly fades.
The medium long finish offers up a peppery note and the return of oranges.
In all honesty, this is a very common dram, even a touch boring.
