T: Malty, oily, a little candy, a little fizz, actually plenty. Eventually moves from sweet malt to dry-malty lemon, dry lemon - sweet and dry. Incredibly long development [probably the longest I've experienced even with water]. Has stamina, will travel.
F: Still more heat, chilli meets spearmint - but it's more of a warm humming than a burn or zing. Then it's [black] tea time finally finishing with a mash paste and a firm touch of oaky sour.
C: It wasn't that long ago when a sizeable 20% of Glen Ord’s output went towards single malt. Today  Glen Ord is a huge [Diageo owned] distillery operating mainly for blend - Johnny Walker & Dewar's for example. Given its destiny, Ord's character is naturally a little neutral although quality is high with potential complexity if cask[s] and direction will allow. It's certainly a robust spirit with a bit of everything, like the 12yo WB and 18yo WB Singleton will testify
