  1. Koning scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    My first Glen Ord and it has been a positive encounter: I like the vibrant fresh and raw character. Never had such a hoppy nose, very nice!
    • Nose
      86 86
      A sprakling fresh nose with coconut, fresh laundry, apricot, lemon grass, yogurt and a hoppy IPA-like quality.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Thick and syrupy. It has a sweet side with vanilla, hazelnuts and malt sugars, but it also has many 'young' green notes.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is weaker and a bit alcoholic. Quite grainy, with some honey and citrus fruits.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice and fresh, but it's not really in balance. Alcohol is not integrated in the whisky yet, should have stayed in the cask a little longer actually.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fresh, fruity, citrus, pear, aapples. Now and then the alcohol is pretty prominent. Sweet, vanilla. Also a little lemon detergent.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Pretty pungent, pepper. Fruity, citrus, tropical fruits. Alcohol seems to be 'loose' from the spirit, resulting in some bitterness.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still pungent, pepper. Fruity and sweet, but again some bitterness from the alcohol. Also a little tobacco in the mouth afterwards.

    Young, but delicate and nicely balanced. Good value for money in my opinion.

  10. Opeth83 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Very fresh nose, lot of fresh juicy yellow fruit, close to the distillate not much wood impact. In the mouth it is very alcoholic but also the yellow fruitiness of the nose. It feels very young but potent. The finish is short so not very much going on just a little bitterness from the cask. 

    I don't know why they bottle this at this age, it has a lot of potential to be a great whisky maybe when it reaches the 18-21 y.
