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.

If this 28yo is anything like the 25yo, i would buy a case, or 2. I love this STYLE of single malt. Glen Ord is Pretty unique, I must say, every time I swirl the nosing (tulip) glass, I detect a new aroma ... - Tim (Canada)
This is whisky at it's best Just purchased my second bottle. slange
Brora cannot suffer comparison with this illustrious liquor, sorry Ira:(
Got my bottel today..
Embarrassingly similar to the regular old 12YO bottles (pre "Singleton" disappointment). I say that despite the fact Glen Ord is one of my favourite single-malts (have tasted almost 150 of them).If you can afford this, and want REAL bang for your buck try bottles like the 30 YO Brora. My favourite all-time SM, specifically the 56.6% bottling from 2006. Amazing. I could have bought it two years ago for £175 and I was dumb enough to give it up, now it's £300...
This is great stuff! My son bought it for me last christmas and i hope he gets me another this year (hint hint). Can't believe how cheap it is on this website, I think he paid over £200 for it!
