Nose: Old polished wood and sugar syrup up front. Beeswax and fruit reveal themselves as the whisky sits in the glass, along with s touch of wood glue and some sweet cinnamon.
Palate: Soft and waxy, with some black pepper, sappy wood, stewed apple, sharp granny smiths, floral hints, a lick of wood smoke and some hot spiciness.
Finish: Sharp oak softened by sweet apple, apple skin, dark chocolate and a sprinkling of hot cinnamon spice.
Comment: Elegant but with oomph - a cracking example of what Glen Ord can do when left to mature.
