Glen Ord distillery is a Whisky & Alement favourite for it’s full bodied, complex orchard fruit style of spirit. Another of Diageo’s giant distilleries, most Glen Ord is destined for blended whiskies. The malts of Glen Ord are lightly peated in some cases but it is hardly detectable.
Nose: Dry grass and hay, sweet toffee and ginger. Milk bottle lollies.
Palate: Blue ribbon ice cream, lemon slice and waxy pizza dough.
Finish: Hazelnut cream, classic ex- bourbon cask maturation with a bit of oaky grip for length.
