A very special bottling indeed, this is now very hard to find for sale. We are lucky to have a couple bottles left in stock.

 

From the producer:

"Unusually from freshly charred American oak hogsheads, this fine cask-strength expression is much spicier than is usual for The Singleton Glen Ord, while retaining its signature smoothness and appealing richness."

 

Appearance

Deep amber with orange lights. Good beading.

Body

Medium bodied.

Nose

A mild nose-feel, with some prickle: lightly nose- drying. Quite hard to discern at cask strength. The subtle aroma is reminiscent of nougat, with traces of dried apple, on a zesty orange peel base. A drop of water smoothly adds creamy chocolate and boosts the orange note. But aroma is not the main event here.

Palate

At natural strength, mouth-filling, and smooth in texture. The compelling and powerful taste starts with the sweetness of caramel toffee, while an answering touch of orange peel sourness introduces a surprising, warming intensity that swells with complex spices. With water, the whole effect is much sweeter and smoother: still spicy, though the latter now decides to be part of the story, not the main theme.

Finish

Long, warming, and increasingly spicy, leaving the palate tingling. Lightly drying, too. With water, sweeter and smoother, leaving an aftertaste of milk chocolate.
