    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Glen Ord 18 yo 1997/2015 (49.9%, Spirit Shop Selection and Sansibar, 179 bottles)  The label, LOL! Well done guys, that’s funny indeed. Colour: pale white wine – and that wine has never seen any oak. Nose: extremely narrow, but that’s an asset here. Clay, lime, barley. I repeat, clay, li… Eighteen years in an oak cask, really? But as you know, we’re not quite against naked, straight, fully spirit-driven whiskies. Curious about the palate… Mouth: fantastic, because only the distillate speaks, a distillate that’s gained smoothness and fullness from age, not from wood (provided you could get that from wood, which remains to be debated). Oily start (sunflower oil), then barley water, acacia honey, williams pear, brioche dough, and grapefruit. Finish: rather long, even a bit hot, with some muesli. Comments: good, this baby rather tastes like 6 or 7 to be honest – which the pale colour already suggested – but it’s a great bottle to play tricks on your whisky buddies. Like, guess how old this is? SGP:551 - 83 points.
