The Singleton Glen Ord 42 year old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the oldest release in the 180 year history of the distillery and the 2nd offering in The Forgotten Drop Series - an annual, natural cask strength release of our rarest and most precious stocks. Our Malt Master, Maureen Robinson re-discovered a few very rare casks in the warehouse and has crafted them together to create a series of exceptional and rare whiskies.

This 2nd release in the series brings a rare and new dimension to maturation by taking our amazingly delicate and balanced 42 year old liquid and finishing it in hand-selected American Oak Hogshead casks conditioned with rare Amontillado. This brings out sweet, aromatic oak flavours and accentuates the depth and complexity of this exceptional whisky.

Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE

Bright amber with copper highlights and light beading

NOSE

A mild nose-feel and profoundly rich, dense and fruity aroma—peaches and mangos in syrup, maraschino cherries—on a light almond oil base. Growing hints of candle wax as the aromas grow ever richer, with some barley sugar sweetness. Slightly nose-drying. A small drop of water opens things up, with the fruity notes now surrendering to crystalline sugar, antique books and snuffed candle.

BODY
Lightly oily

PALATE

Smooth, lightly oily and cooling. Pronounced sweetness to start then a balancing hint of salt, which later evolves into a light herbal astringency. Gently drying and delicately coating, always with an appealing oaky-spicy note and astoundingly vigorous for its advanced age. Water introduces more of that surprising saltiness and spice, yet remains clean and fresh. Slightly minty, with a hint of eucalyptus and residual tannins that leave the teeth feeling clean.

FINISH

Long, slightly bitter, warming and noticeably drying with a thread of scented wood smoke. Trace of waxiness at the end as well. Water introduces a surprisingly salty note and a lightly cooling, menthol aftertaste.
