Prima & Ultima The Singleton of Glen Ord 34 year old 1987, 49.4%,

Price: $1,200 (or £36,500/set) Issue: Fall 2022 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




The last Glen Ord stock of this vintage has a concentrated, layered nose of lemon bonbons, gooseberry custard, toffee, vanilla, ripe barley, honey, fruit pastilles, and gentle oak. The taste buds are smothered in the confectionary sweetness of lemon meringue pie, butterscotch, honey, creamed coconut, gingernut biscuits, and toffee apple, plus pepper and lively clove. Water adds richness and deeper citrus flavors. Stunning—like a summer's evening you wish would never end. (1,047 bottles)
