  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 78 points Specialist

    A Glenfiddich 12 challenger.

    Lighter and fruitier, maybe that's what make it just a little more interesting.

  6. peatbogger scored this whisky 78 points Specialist

    The engineered color is spot on optimal, almost sparkling bright gold.

    Not bad at all, but it's not very exciting, again that feeling of engineered to please the masses.
    • Nose
      Subdued, almost a little closed, but Speyside it is.

      Sweet, caramel, bourbon vanilla oak, over time turning more towards honey.

      Some apple, a little pear, rather unripe with a citric edge.

      A little greenery/fresh grass with a very soft hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Initial hit is a little thin, but there is an almost imediate build up of spice.

      Sweet, butterscotch, rich caramel.

      Some fruityness present, but again rather restrained, not the ripe juicy kind.
    • Finish
      Medium, might even stretch to medium+

      Rich and spicy, actually pleasantly hot.

      As the spice gives way there is a soft return of apples and pears.

  7. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Honey, fruit, graham, banana, marzipan.

    Palate: Honey, fruit, copper, pastry, taffy.

    Finish: med-Long -> Dark sweets, graham, char and fruit.
