Glen Ord's BagLabel
Glen Ord embodies all the virtues of the Clan MacKenie motto - I shine not burn. 
This superb 12 year old malt whisky has been awarded the International Wine & Spirits Competition Trophy for the 'best single malt up to 15 years'. 

Described by a leading expert as 'perilously drinkable,' Glen Ord is exceptionally smoth and elegang. 
with a hint of spice in the rich, lingering finish. 

This is a truly florious whisky.

Danish remark :Bemærkning : SKAL nydes uden is... (Tør) :  Bedst til dato, pris smag og duft taget i betragtning. 
Vi har d.d. endnu ikke mødt en med respekt for whisky, der ikke har kunne lide denne 'lidt' oversete whisky.
Prisen, den relative gode kvalitet og at denne whisky hverken er meget sød, malt eller røget gør at man har råd til at bruge denne whisky som reference ved sammenligning af malt whiskies....

The Glen Ord Still

RIP From some other sitez.

An important component of the Dewar's blends, it has impeded its reputation by constantly changing its name. The distillery has variously been identified as Muir of Ord, Glen Ord or simply Ord. In official bottlings the single malt was for a time known as Glenordie. It has now reverted to Glen Ord. Never mind that the distillery is hardly in a glen: no reasonable malt-lover would wish to encourage any further changes of identity.
The distillery is at the village called Muir of Ord, on the neck of the Black Isle, an isthmus between the Moray, Beauly and Cromarty Firths, not far from Inverness. The 'Isle' is noted for the cultivation of barley for malting. There is a maltings with its open-sided peat-barns visible from the road, at the distillery. Muir of Ord was founded in 1838 by the Mackenzies of Ord, close to their meal mill and sharing the Allt Fionnaidh or 'White Burn' nearby for its water supply. It was modernised in 1966 and currently has six stills. It is located on the outskirts of Muir of Ord, off the A832, 25 Km/15 miles west of Inverness and is the sole survivor of no less than nine distilleries present in the area in Victorian times. Thomas Mackenzie, proprietor of the Ord estate was a rarity of the time being an exemplary landlord.

Some distance away from the famous Loch Ness, next to the village of Muir of Ord stands the distillery built on the Clan Mackenzie estate in 1938. Since then, the years have passed but passions have remained the same: the same love for a whisky, born of elements as simple as water, barley and peat; the same production methods; the same copper stills hammered out by hand.

Here, the master distiller speaks to you of a whisky as the fruit of an eternal harmony between man and nature. For even if its production may be considered an art form, nothing would have been possible without the natural aid of this rich and fertile land.

Glen Ord demonstrates a powerful character typical of its root. And at the Black Isle, nature vies with talent in the making of a great whisky. Barley is there in abundance, as is peat, which is used to smoke the barley. As for the water source supplying the distillery, it comes from two different but extremely pure sources and it is this subtle combination which gives Glen Ord a smoothness and richness which no other malt can match.

It takes twelve long years at Glen Ord, but the ritual remains unchanged. It is this patient maturation in oak casks which allows it to absorb all its rich flavours. The air, saturated with salty sea-spray and the scent of peat and heather, makes its way between the sections of the barrels and caresses the alcohol throughout its entire maturation, until it have left the fine traces of its imprint. And by the time the whisky is finally fully mature, it has thus acquired a unique flavour, both complex and smooth, each subtle note a reminder of the characteristics of its origin.
