The oldest of The Singleton distilleries and the only Highlander in the family, Glen Ord is the product of the White Burn’s water and the Black Isle’s barley. But this beautifully rich Single Malt Scotch Whisky is anything but grey – zinging instead with the vibrancy of dark berries, cherries and blackcurrants.

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. 

Region A taste of Speyside sophistication.
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.
