Review: Signatory (Glen Ord), 1998 VintageApril 12th, 2010
Following up on my Friday post, here’s my review of another cask-strength Signatory whisky.
Signatory (distilled at Glen Ord), 1998 Vintage, 11 year old, Cask #3465, 60.3%, $110
Bright gold color. Big and firm on the palate. Quite fruity too (tangerine, pear, sultana, pineapple), on a dry malty foundation. Lighter notes of grass, hay, linseed oil and dried vanilla add complexity. Dried fruit and malt finish. A really nice dram with gobs of character.
