A first entry in the Diageo Special Releases collection for The Singleton of Glen Ord. The whisky is usually only available in the far east, but this bottling is a herald of wider availability to come. It's a complex dram thanks to a five-cask maturation process: first European oak ex-sherry and refill American oak ex-bourbon casks, then the spirit was moved to ex-Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel casks, and finally it was married together in European oak puncheons. The result is a rich and toffeed dram that has Ord's famed orchard fruit character at its core.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Rich toffee and caramel with stewed sultanas and raisin jam wrapped in spiced puff pastry. Orchard fruit notes develop: spiced apple and poached pears.

    • Palate

      Soft and rounded with creamy vanilla and more orchard fruit. Leathery touches creep in around the edges, along with raisins and background of stewed fruit. Spicy cinnamon and nutmeg slowly build.

    • Finish

      Sweet oak notes hang around, layered with soft spice, apple sauce and icing.

    • Comment

      Each of the casks has added its own thing and its all well integrated – nothing fights and it all mingles nicely.
