A bit too sweet and
too much like candy to be outstanding, but far from bad. Liquid Sun has only
bottled Glen Ord twice. The other cask is a 15 Year Old from 1997 and is
rumored to be better.
Nice, fresh and
fruity nose. Peaches and mandarin from a tin, onripe strawberries and even some
litchi. Pineapple too. Reminds me a bit of marshmallows. A bit of oak, that is
quite nice. Slowly but surely, it is becoming as sweet as candy.
Soft arrival, but
spicy nonetheless. The fruit returns, but now it is very sweet, almost
artificial. That makes me associate the palate with candy as well. It does have
a nice grain, if you know what I mean.
The long finish reminds
me a bit of cherry liqueur.
