Glen Ord, 14 Year Old, 2018 Release

Triple matured for richness and depth of flavour, the first
Singleton Glen Ord in this series is a 14 YO given a unique and
ingeniously complicated five cask maturation and marrying
process. This is thought to be the first time that five different
woods have been so used to mature a Single Malt Scotch
Whisky.

A classic Singleton Glen Ord with heightened signature aromas of
baked apple and sweet orange fruit, beeswax and spice. Smooth
and sumptuous too, on a palate rich in mature fruit notes. Very
desirable.

Contains Sulphites.

About Glen Ord

The Singleton Glen Ord has been known by many names over its
long history, among them Ord, Glenordie, Ordie, Muir of Ord
and Glen Ord. But it can claim a more important enduring
characteristic; its whisky has always been thought, in the
immortal words of the esteemed whisky writer Michael Jackson,
“perilously drinkable”. Founded in 1838 by Thomas Mackenzie on
his land north of Inverness, the distillery can still take advantage of
local barley from the Black Isle and pure water from two lochans in
the high hills, one fed by rainfall, one by springwater. One of a
very few distilleries also to have its own maltings, The Singleton
Glen Ord enjoys a shining reputation, deservedly reflecting its
founder’s motto “I shine not burn”.

Appellation: Highland

The Highlands are one of Scotland’s vast whisky regions, boasting a spectrum of styles from rich and textured to fragrantly floral, as befits an ever-changing landscape of coastline, moor and mountain.

To call Highland single malts diverse is an understatement: from the fertile east coast to the rugged west, this vast area boasts a rich variety of distillery styles. From light and grassy to heavily sherried – these are whiskies that refuse to be pigeonholed. Some of the most well-known Highland distilleries include Clynelish, Dalmore, Edradour, Glendronach, Oban and Old Pulteney.

Curiously, there are only three distilleries that are allowed to use the ‘Royal Epithet in their names and all are located in the Highlands: Royal Brackla, Glenury Royal (Now closed) and Royal Lochnagar.
