Glen Ord 28 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

    Nose: Malt and mint bound together by soft liquorice and dark fudge.

    Taste: Delightful barley sugar theme that forms a stupendously rigid middle with the most delicate hints of smoke and coffee.  The body weight is perfect.

    Finish: Amazingly long finale with lashings of cocoa to go with the mollassed sugar and powering barley.

    Balance: This is mega whisky showing slight traces of sap, especially on the nose, but otherwise a concentrate of many of the qualities I remember from this distillery before it was bottled in a much ruined form.  Blisteringly beautiful.

    Score: 90/100

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Some nose prickle; mellow fruitiness. Very light. Slight hint of smoke. Bread baking. Water opens up fragrant, woody, even musty aromas.

    Body: Medium to soft.

    Palate: Firm. Assertive. Honeyed. Expressive. Spicy. Pleasant, sweet and slightly waxy to taste. When water is added, holds together well and retains its attractive aroma.

    Finish: Extraordinary explosion of sweet-and-sour flavours. Spicy. Vanilla. Flowery.
    Leafy. Lemon juice. A pleasant freshness and slight bitterness. Medium length.
