A very sweet honeycomb nose on this Ord, which turns more spicy and tweedy on the palate as the wood influence asserts itself before an appley finish. Becomes waxy with water.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by TF

N: Intense honeycomb, with some aromas reminiscent of a mature dessert wine.  A very syrupy, honeyed affair that develops a residual toastiness and notes of vanilla, cream soda, dough, soda farl (like a flouriness to the barley) and fresh-cut flowers.  Becomes very meadowy with time, although the sweetness is also ever-present.

P:  Fine-grained oak, then the honeyed barley floods in, coming in waves alongside the woodiness.  A pronounced tweediness alongside the oak, and late waxiness.

F:  Some salt and wet leaves alongside honey, beeswax, polished malt and oak.

C:  The palate isn't as sweet as the nose, with more spicy wood influence.  Becomes waxy with water.
