Glen Ord, Milroy's of Soho Single Cask, 1999, 46%
Price: $74.00 ● Issue: Summer 2011 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
A Glen Ord bottled by the London wine and spirits establishment of Milroy's, and a relatively rare opportunity to sample single malt from this Diageo-owned distillery. The nose initially presents lemon zest, then peaches and caramel, with cream soda notes. Very fruity and lively in the mouth, with a nutty, malty undercurrent. Medium in length; firm, with spicy fruit lasting to the very end, accompanied by a touch of well-mannered fresh oak. £45 Currently not available in the U.S.
