Glen Ord 1962 22 Years Samaroli - Bouquet


Samaroli is an Italian independent bottler, famed for the exceptional quality of their releases and for their arty, innovative labels and packaging. This sensational cask strength Glen Ord picked up a whopping 92 points on Serge Valentin's Whiskyfun.


Colour: pure gold. Nose: oh, we have another winner here, it seams. Quite similar globally, but a little less fruity and certainly more resinous (close to almond milk and propolis here) and nutty. Lots of marzipan as well, roasted peanuts, beeswax, furniture polish. And then we have more or less the same superb notes of sandalwood. Another amazing nose, impossible to say which one is the nicest. Both are simply wonderful. Mouth: an extraordinary attack, even punchier than the new OB, and also creamier and sweeter. It’s the same distillery, obviously. Again a little less fruit and freshness and more waxy and resinous flavours. Notes of cough syrup, marzipan, lots of dried ginger and smoked tea. Sort of a bitterness (dried herbs) and a long finish again, waxy and on lemon skin again. In short, this one is extremely good again, but it’s maybe just a tad less balanced and complex than the OB. I said 'a tad'. 92 points.
