Colour: white wine. Nose: typical. Peanut oil, Meursault, touches of varnish and pineapple (amyl diacetate), rhubarb and vanilla. Mouth: very malty, with more rhubarb as well, beers, cake, walnuts and cashews, roasted peanuts, and this oily/earthy side that's always rather Ord in my book. Finish: medium, caky. Orange cake, marmalade, peanut butter. Comments: I think we'll do that old joke once again (bear with me), Ord is anything but Ord-inary. No, not too proud, but I loved the peanut butter in this one. Very very good.
