Can we create a sorted table in Hive without bucketing it

Can we create a sorted table in Hive without bucketing it

I want to store a table in hive sorted on a individual column. The table has got partitions, I know I can save the table sorted on a column by using clustered by and sort by. But that would create buckets. I still want to store the table sorted on the column with out bucketing. Is this possible in hive?
