.... a robust northern highlander with a great reputation amongst the Blenders for the balance it brings to Blends, Diageo bottle it therefore the Malt signature of the 12 y.o. is a bit off-key due to the 'branding'
however, older Glen Ord's are worth the effort, with a Malt signature of wood, wood-spice, nuts and great under-stated balance.
Glen Ord 12 y.o. 88/100
feb '09 - official 12 y.o. now discontinued, so will be a modest collectors item.
