  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Rowald is right, this is a single cask, cask strength, Glenfiddich. Very 'naked' and very pure. Well-balanced whisky. Probably not the most sexiest or funky, but flawless and very enjoyable to taste.
    • Nose
      Starts with lots of solid bourbon cask characteristics. That means vanilla, honey, hickory, and burnt toast. Followed by ints of biscuits and shortbread. Also Golden Delicious apples, yellow prunes, and kumquats. Fresh cedarwood in the background. Promising.
    • Taste
      The taste is unexpectedly fruity with pineapple cubes, apricot, and tinned peach. It develops more into citrus fruit later on. Kiwi, lemon, and gooseberries. Bergamot. In the background hints of acacia honey, vanilla, and aniseed. It's all quite waxy.
    • Finish
      Quite long with a lingering sweetness of zest and lemon peel. White pepper and clove. Apple-mint and spearmint in the finale.

  2. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very very Glenfiddich-esque. Nutty and fruity. An old school styled whisky you see less and less these days. Greatly balanced. Does all the things you might expect from a cask strength Glenfiddich but that was exactly why I bought this bottle and exactly what I wanted it to do. Great stuff.
