    The fruit is more in the direction of meadow fruit and is not quite ripe. Somewhat grassy. In addition, a mixture of fresh, musty and dry wood. In the mouth even somehow a memory of wood smoke, which I now simply attribute to the aromatic oak.

    It wasn't bad now, but it won't mourn it.

  12. ARDBERG scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Rich, sweet, yellow fruits, subtly peaty, from nose to finish with the peat getting to the foreground. Simple but gggggrrrrrreeeeeaaat .

    [October, 2019] A Glenfiddich single cask bottling is almost impossible to find (except for the "fill your own" offering at the distillery) that is why I bought this bottle for 80 Euro...

    ...and it is worth the bucks, no doubt. This is a rather bold Glenfiddich (thanks to the cask strength) which offers the delicate profile of this distillery much better than the low-proof standard editions. Such a profile really needs some "oompf" to beef it up and this bottling delivers that perfectly - one of the best 'fiddich I had so far.
    • Nose

      The colour is yellow gold and the nose offers a delicate fruity and floral profile that is rather bold (for a Glenfiddich). There are both home-grown (apples, apricots) as well as exotic fruits (mango, grapefruit), grassy, summer floral and barley sugary aromas in a tasty spicy wooden setting which perfectly fits. All is in a fine balance without any off-note, this is one of the best 'fiddich noses I had so far (to be honest, there were not that many).
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste is fruity and sugary sweet with spices, waxes and oils - a truly old-style profile. Some shy herbs lurk in the background as do some tobacco-tea-ish notes. After some chewing tasty honey flavours join in and later a delicious mocha pops up that I really like. Hey, this is a very fine taste! By the way, no flaw or imbalance that I can find.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate without distracting moments, actually a pretty good mouthfeel. The finish is long and turns more spicy-earthy which is a nice addition to the sweet taste. There is a minor drying feeling towards the end (green tea) that is not distracting. Water releases the earthy aromas in the nose too and turns the taste smoother but I like the power of the neat dram better.
