The Singleton of Glen Ord Single Malt Scotch Whisky (which apparently is the fastest growing Single Malt in the Asia Pacific region) has scored a major win in the prestigious Scotch Whisky Masters competition.
The Scotch Whisky Masters wins are decided by an expert judging panel after an extensive and rigorous blind tasting process. The panel included mixologists, managers of luxury hotels, bars and restaurants, global retailers, and leading whisky commentators including two former editors of Whisky Magazine.
They awarded The Singleton of Glen Ord 12 year old a ‘Master’ which is the highest award in the competition.
The Singleton of Glen Ord 12 year old, together with The Singleton of Glen Ord 15 and 18 year old releases have taken the Asia market by storm since their release in 2006 breaking the 100,000 cases barrier in 2010.
About The Singleton of Glen Ord
Glen Ord is a Highland distillery on the edge of the Black Isle west of Inverness in the north of Scotland. It continues to malt its own barley and use the long fermentation and slow distillation methods followed there for generations since Robert Johnstone established the distillery in 1838.
For The Singleton of Glen Ord, a high proportion of the liquid has been matured in European oak, delivering a rich, smooth-tasting, well-balanced and accessible style.
It has been praised for its smooth, sophisticated and fragrant taste.
