Founded in 1838 as Glen Oran, this distillery was renamed Glen Ord in 1923. It is one of only two Scottish distilleries to malt all of its own barley, today in the drum maltings installed at the site in 1968. Equipped with three wash stills and three spirit stills, it is able to produce 11 million litres of pure alcohol per year, making it the sixth highest producer in Scotland. Its naturally malty palette of flavours and aromas wavers between medicinal and herbaceous notes. The latter include aromatic plants that play a key role in its balance and bring a lot of originality.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: golden yellow.

Nose: full-bodied, subtle. The ethereal first nose wavers between notes of William’s pear, watercress, green walnut, vanilla and cut hay. Allowed to breathe, fragrances of orange blossom and hyacinth highlight the aroma palette’s heady nature. Becoming increasingly medicinal (ointment, mustard poultice) and at the same time malty, it continually grows in depth and fullness.

Palate: lively, concentrated. The particularly spicy attack (star anise, nutmeg, clove) gives its own, more intense take on the medicinal notes from the nose. The herbaceous (green barley) and fruity (pear, apple) mid-palate gradually allows the expression of citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) and verbena. The serene end of the palate is pleasantly vanilla and mentholated.

Finish: long, silky. Closely linked to the end of the palate, the start of the finish releases deeply refreshing flavours of coriander, dill and parsley. With a pleasant honeyed softness, the end of the finish pours grains of barley across the palate. A perfect summary of the nose and palate, the retro-nasal olfaction is very generous. As well as being intensely malty, the empty glass is also medicinal, camphoric and peppery.
