    Another experimental whisky from Glenfiddich. Peaty & smokey, smooth, warming. An entry level peated whisky.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Some peat and smoke, but mostly mild & fruity
    • Taste
      85 85
      Bold peat! Honey, spices, smoke, with some sharpness and a bit of fruity pear.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Smooth, warming, and smokey. Medium length

    I’m not the biggest peat fan, but this is kind of doing it for me. It’s got highlights from early 60’s Glenfiddich and a heavy handed peat bomb (think of that light apple fruit note mixing with some new school ashy smoke and sweet malt) with some lovely light fruit.

      The nose is light! Fruity and smoky, not the same 'Fiddich that you know. There’s a big waft of soft peat and honey, rosehip tea and teak wood.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The palate is big, much bigger than the nose leads on! Sweets and sesame snaps lead the way with a smoked apple pie note underneath. The soft peat comes slowly at first then faster and faster. Slowly consuming the sweet malt and pushing the finish.
    • Finish

      The finish... this is the smoky shine of Fire&Cane. It’s a little rough around the edges in a great way. Smoke all over, sweet oak and wood spices, and vanilla apple custard settle at the bottom.

    • Nose
      81 81
      Aromatic smoke ... light in the chicken wings direction.
      A little later: soft sweet fruits
    • Taste
      83 83
      Smoky sweet and some fruit.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Something smoke and mild
