The Singleton of Glen Ord bottled as part of the Diageo Special Releases 2019!
The Singleton Glen Ord is particularly known for its richness and fruitiness, here enriched by a different, more intense maturation cask.
This small batch of The Singleton Glen Ord, matured for a full 18 years in freshly charred American oak hogsheads and never before released, combines smooth distillery character with subtle complex aromas and intensely spicy tastes.
The subtle aroma suggests nougat, with traces of dried apple, on a zesty orange peel base. The compelling and powerful taste starts with the sweetness of caramel toffee, the orange peel introduces a surprising intensity that swells with complex spices. The finish is long and leaves the palate tingling.
The cask type used is a unique wood type for a whisky of this age, and certainly not something which has often been seen in the past, as the use of freshly-charred wood gives a much more overt wood flavour with pronounced spicy notes.
Also, as the theme of the Special Releases 2019 is 'Rare by Nature', the label features a fish staring longingly at some blackberries.
Deep amber with orange lights.
A mild nose-feel, with some prickle: lightly nose- drying. Quite hard to discern at cask strength. The subtle aroma is reminiscent of nougat, with traces of dried apple, on a zesty orange peel base. A drop of water smoothly adds creamy chocolate and boosts the orange note. But aroma is not the main event here.
At natural strength, mouth-filling, and smooth in texture. The compelling and powerful taste starts with the sweetness of caramel toffee, while an answering touch of orange peel sourness introduces a surprising, warming intensity that swells with complex spices. With water, the whole effect is much sweeter and smoother: still spicy, though the latter now decides to be part of the story, not the main theme.
Long, warming, and increasingly spicy, leaving the palate tingling. Lightly drying, too. With water, sweeter and smoother, leaving an aftertaste of milk chocolate.
