The Singleton of Glen Ord 18 Year (2019 Special Release)
Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland
Tasted October 20, 2020
Nose: Sweet, doughy bread, fuity like a hint of cooked apple and strawberries. Lastly a bit of creamy vanilla like that that sometimes is found in a creme brulee. Just a tiny bit of cinnamon sugar at the end. Palate: lots of apricots and a tinge of lemon zestiness. A sweetness emerges and the taste of milk chocolate covered strawberries. Finish: Similar to the palate with a little bit of cinnamon and star anise but not in an overly spicy way. A little herbal on the retrohale after a sip. Enjoyed the nose more than the palate but not a bad dram at all!
