Glen Ord 20yo Batch 1 TBWC

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.

Score: 83/100

Don’t take my word for it:
