Lemon, fresh, sweetish, summer rain, Yasmin and now pushes the sherry significantly behind with herbs, redcurrant jam, sweetened and dried cranberry, chocolate, color is not everything, if it were much darker, that would fit more to the nose, facets change: again citrus , Star fruit, pineapple. In the second nose are added Christmas spices, cinnamon stick, orange oil, creme brulee
oily onset with great strength, very sweet, fruit juice, oranges, peach, blueberries, light vanilla, little oak but delicate chocolate, nougat, just a touch of coffee, light pepper notes without pungency, I do not like swallowing it ...
The second try but a bit oak and kräuterlastiger than at the beginning but not disturbing.
seeeeeeeee chocolaty, like a nougat praline with tart chocolate on the outside, now removes the tart oranges, long, great, memorable finish, the chocolate sticks to the tongue.
Wow. For a long time again a Malt, which shows an increase from nose to mouth to the departure. Whereby it is less an increase in quality or intensity but in surprise moments. The alcohol strength is perfectly matched to the whisky, is actually perceptible only in the nose as such. He is neither watery nor too intense. If it was up to me, Glenfiddich would like to change strategy and focus on such bottlenecks instead of the mass market. They can (or could) do that really well. What is there to criticize? Surely he could be more complex in mouth and finish or more intense with that being the current view of things. I like the elegant composition of this old malts.
