This is an amazing Scotch. Just returned from a scotland trip and bought this after a tasting of the 12,15 and 18. The 15 was great but the sweet smooth finish of the 18 was sublime.
Since this expression is not generally available in the UK or outside of Asia, I hesitate to add my 2 cents. But I was inspired by the reviews below, and when I came across it in Vietnam, I grabbed it. So, I worship Glen Ord, but distillery expressions are limited, and this one is tasty and has good core distillery character, but it is muted. That is the best one word summary, 'muted'. It has the distillery's heather and golden summer flavors, orchards, and bits of picnic spices, but at 40% and with clear sherry influence, it mutes what otherwise be glorious. The legacy is greater than this example, but I still recommend it if you can find it.
Ordered a bottle after visiting the distillery in Glen Ord. Worth it
This is the best bottle for the ? by far. I was lucky to get a taste of this the year it was released and keep on including this one!
Possibly the best Scotch Whisky in the slightly high yet affordable price range ever. Divine nectar, alas, out of stock globally. On the nose, a gentle waft of beeswax opening up to honey, followed by distant yet distinct flavours of cinnamon, basel, Sinhalese pine, lemon peel, quince and vanilla. Chilly powder. Palate: Big. Waxen and chocolate malt-sugar sweet. Clotted cream, Italian lemon, dried fruits - nectarines, apricot, Asian gooseberries and tangerines. French Mirabelle jam. Half a teaspoon of water highlights the multi-sherried wood, wax, honey, and vanilla, but depresses the fruit. Traces of Picpoule armagnac. Finish: Long and luxurious. Doesn''t lose anything. Just glorious. Punchy yet divinely elegant. Rajasthani Asha liquor, Asian kitchen mash. Maybe that’s why it’s sold in Asia only!
