Description

A Journey Through Time

This whiskey exemplifies the profound impact of the passage of time. Aged for nearly four decades, it patiently matured in a variety of European oak casks, each imparting its unique character.  Imagine the subtle whispers of sweetness from port casks mingling with the bold fruitiness of red wine casks.  Then there’s the luxurious richness of Pedro Ximenez sherry and the nutty depth of oloroso sherry, all culminating in a whisky of unparalleled complexity.

Aromatic Tapestry

As you raise the glass to your nose, prepare to be enveloped by a rich and mellow aroma.  Imagine the enticing fragrance of a freshly baked fruit cake studded with plump, wine-soaked raisins.  Hints of candied orange peel add a touch of citrus brightness, while toasted almonds offer a nutty counterpoint.  A whisper of butterscotch emerges, tinged with a hint of caramelized vanilla, creating a truly captivating olfactory experience.

Decadent Delight on the Palate

The first sip is a revelation.  A wave of sweet, juicy blackberries washes over the palate, followed by a luxurious whisper of muscovado sugar.  Hints of clove and other baking spices add a touch of warmth, their presence perfectly balanced by the underlying sweetness.  The finish is long and incredibly satisfying, leaving a lingering warmth and a subtle hint of salted plums to tantalize the taste buds.

A Collector’s Dream

With only 1,695 bottles ever released, this whisky is a true collector’s item.  It’s a chance to own a piece of whisky history, a testament to the dedication and expertise of the craftspeople at Glen Ord.  Whether you’re a seasoned Scotch aficionado or simply someone who appreciates exceptional quality, The Singleton of Glen Ord 39 Year Old is a whisky that will leave a lasting impression.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Nose

The nose-feel is mellow, and the aroma is profoundly complex. Mild at first and vinous, with fruity top notes suggesting a rich fruit cake with wine-soaked raisins, candied orange peel and toasted almonds. Later, some butterscotch emerges, with a slightly burnt edge to the cake. Water dials back the fruit and introduces a cooling effect.

Finish

Finish

Very long, fruity, and warming, with a lingering spicy warmth and a hint of salted plums in the aftertaste. The latter is increased by a drop of water, when the whole aftertaste becomes unusually menthol-cool, with perhaps a suggestion of cherry liqueur chocolates.

Taste

Taste

At natural strength, light yet creamy-smooth; a very slightly waxy texture and a mouth-watering, sweet start with a notably fruity clove-studded spiciness. Then gently drying, with more spice towards the end yielding a light peppery warmth. Richly flavored and perfectly balanced, it drinks well neat. With just a dash of water, the texture is thinner, and the sweetness comes forward slightly; there is a shake of salt now at the expense of spicier warmth, which returns in the finish.
