Whisky Review: Glen Ord 20 Year Old Batch 1
Category: Highland single malt scotch whisky
Origin: Glen Ord Distillery
Bottling: That Boutique-Y Whisky Company
Cost: £coming soon
What they say:
Distilled at Glen Ord Distillery, Aged 20 Years, Batch 1, 51.9% ABV.
What I say:
Sampled as part of the #TBWCAdvent Twitter tasting just before Christmas
Pale refractive gold (8/20)
Fresh, grassy, citrus lemon and lime, green apple skin, ginger, ginger nut biscuits, biscuit cereal malt
Spiced and fruity cereal barley, lemon and honey and almost medicinal cough drop or cold remedy with the spirit alcohol, cereals develop and add a hint of nuttiness – water brings out spice, white pepper, dry oak and ginger – give me back my sweeties!
Medium, lemon barley sugars, honey
Preferred at full strength, full of that lemon citrus I associate with Glen Ord spirit, there is a good mixture of both spirit and cask characteristics in here but perhaps spirit wins out a little. Water changed this but not to my liking.
Don’t take my word for it:
