Glen Ord 20
Released in 2005, a 30 year old from Glen Ord, bottled at cask strength.
The nose is very fragrant and pungent. Notes of honey and beeswax with a mixture of jams with aromatic wood and a nuttiness. The oak is tannic and refined. The palate is full and rich with a good sweetness. Notes of fruit and citrus with a touch of something herbal, perhaps a touch of Lapsang Souchong. Hints of menthol and fennel with an astringent floral character. The finish is very long with fruit, calvados and winter spice.

Re: Taste like dirt
I'm venturing you didn't make your purchase from MasterOfMalt. Marked down a $100? Wow. Did the shop or site inadvertently store the bottle in direct sunlight for a few years?? It's important to make sure you're buying from a reputable site or that you know where and how the bottle's been stored before purchase.

Cultural differences & the taste buds
The best Single I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.
The review that's entitled 'Tastes Like Dirt' (I do like a little toasted peat flavour myself) is so wide of the mark it prompts me to ask either: A) Do you normally drink Bourbon. B) Does anyone know if counterfeiters copy whiskies?

This bottle of Scotch has the sweetest smell and is
the smoothest I have ever tasted. Thank you for
distilling such a fine product.

it was marked down to 200US from 300US. For a 30 year bottle we thought we couldn't go wrong. What a mistake. Kind of like the Titanic.
Harsh burn that lasted for hours. Dirty finish, meaning it tasted like dirt.
If this was my introduction to scotch, I would have become a tee totaler.
