Tasting Note:

Unusually from freshly charred American oak hogsheads, this fine cask-strength expression is much spicier than is usual for The Singleton Glen Ord, while retaining its signature smoothness and appealing richness.

Appearance: Deep amber with orange lights. Good beading.

Nose: 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...

Body: Medium.

Palate: 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.

Finish: Long, warming and increasingly spicy, leaving the palate tingling. Lightly drying, too. With water, sweeter and smoother, leaving an aftertaste of milk chocolate.
