Glen Ord is one of three distilleries (along with Dufftown and Glendullan) which use The Singleton brand. The 15 Year Old is rich and complex with notes of ginger, vanilla and melon.
Nose: A cautious start with soft hints of melon and summer citrus fruit, opening up to reveal firm waxy notes and rich floral aromas; a whole garden of geraniums and roses. Later, warming spices develop into appetising cinnamon and ginger-spiced biscuits.
Palate: Gently coating. At first, layers of ripe melon fruit and zesty orange-oil freshness fuse with sultanas and spiced biscuits; then it all becomes much richer with crystallized ginger and ginger biscuits coated in an exquisite chocolate creaminess with hints of vanilla.
Finish: Of medium length and beautifully rounded. Rich choux pastry with cooling thick cream; late toasted notes and dry cocoa powder sprinkled on a bitter chocolate tart. Finally, all that richness builds to a gloriously warming conclusion.
