Glen Ord is situated south of Inverness at Muir of Ord, (which means moor next to the hill). The distillery was founded in 1838, although it is widely believed that distilling took place on this site long before this time. In 1961 the floor maltings were converted into a Saladin Box malting (similar to the one still in operation at Tamdhu) and this supplied the malt for the distillery until they were decommissioned in 1984. The mechanical maltings that had been built at Muir of Ord in 1964 to supply the group's other distilleries, then took on the role. Older bottlings of Glen Ord are sometimes bottled as 'Glenordie', 'Ordie' or 'Ord'.

Tasting note: Nose: Busy spices fail to interupt the fruity malt flow; Taste: more spice, then wave upon wave of more brittle malt before a hint of smoke and vanilla appears; Finish: a tad lazy as the malts luxuriate in a soft sweet glow; Comment: Enormously improved...Much closer to how I remember it 20 years ago...A very well made malt...welcome back! 43% Alc./Vol. Rating: 88 points
