Followers of Glen Ord will be familiar with the 'Singleton' version introduced in different parts of the world around 2007. Other than that, relatively few distillery releases have made it to Australia.

Other reviews... An obviously well-made malt showing exceptionally fine structure. 90 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2020

...Colour: white wine. Nose: this one’s rather mature but pure and zesty, as we’re mainly having oranges, apple juice, croissants, and then quite a lot of hay. Touring the French countryside just after harvest time. Yes that would be barley… Mouth: rather excellent given the age and the very moderate oak impact. More oranges and apples, something zesty (lime) and a wee bit of Jaffa cake plus sweet malt. Touches of green pepper. Finish: rather long, a tad fizzy/Schweppesy, with a slightly gingery aftertaste. A little fudge keeps it balanced and ‘easy’. Comments: very fine young malt, very… malty, of course. 84 points - Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
