Glen Ord 28 Year Old Reviews
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.
Producer's Tasting NotesNose: 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.
