Singleton of Glen Ord 15 Year Old Special Releases 2022 750ml
A different take on The Singleton of Glen Ord 15 Year Old, released as part of the Diageo Special Releases 2022. This starts its life the same as the regular release, but then spends a long eight years of secondary maturation in wine casks. The result is a soft and fruity whisky with extra layers of rich dark fruit and spice.
Stacks of fruit: orange, peach, raspberry, fresh and stewed plums, and spiced baked apple. Aromatic oak notes build along with gentle spice. Toffee touches hide at the back.
Soft and creamy in texture, with sweet cream leading into the fruit from the nose: apples, pears, raspberries and fresh plums. Buttery notes give way to orchard fruit purée and damp oak. Sponge cake appears from time to time, studded with sultanas.
Creamy apple sauce and buttery sponge cake with gentle spice and sweet cream
