Chorlton Glen Ord 8yo
Always happy to have another sherried Ord to offer! This one has a surprising smokiness to it.
The nose has butterscotch, peaches, cigarette smoke, banana, hazelnut syrup and buttered panettone. The palate is fat, malty and buttery, with lemon cake, peanut nougat, caramelised apple and banana, and smoky malt running throughout.
This is a richer dram than the last Ord, but the smoke cuts through it beautifully and a drop of water makes the fruits really pop. A perfect mid-winter dram!
This whisky was fully matured in a first-fill PX sherry hogshead, which produced 304 bottles at a cask strength of 58.6%
