Burnished
Nose

Fruity notes of pineapple, melon, papaya and mango, then some sugar, honey, caramel, exotic wood, some aromatic spices and herbs. Alcohol is not perfectly masked.

Taste

Rounded, thick, oily even. Very sweet with white chocolate, honey, cheesecake, caramel, fudge, exotic fruit salad and the slightest touch of lemon.

Finish

Medium length, spicy pepper at first, after a moment the sweetness of the exotic fruits adds up.

Comments

I never cared about Glenfiddich much, but I find this dram really good. Maybe tt caught me off guard a bit.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Red apple, currant, caramel, cinnamon, banana, honey, vanilla and a floral touch.

Taste

Warming with toffee, apple, cinnamon, rum, banana, vanilla and clove. In a way also some straight spirit that somehow reminds of a blend. A depleted re-re-refill cask that they have perhaps tried to cover with the finish?

Finish

Toffee, apple, bitter dark chocolate, banana, raisin and clove.

Comments

Best Glenfiddich I've had so far, although I have to admit that I've never given much attention to this distillery.

Nose

Floral, slight sugary (rum) note, vanilla, white oak, hint of banana, pears

Taste

Cookie, vanilla, blossom, slight pear skin

Finish

Ripe banana, malt sweetness, white oak vanilla, slight caramel, honey. Rummy (floral and spice) note in the background with a hint of white pepper.

Long lasting vanilla sweet friendly finish.

Comments

Well balanced, easy going whisky. Very clean, not too much depth, which makes this not too demanding for those evenings where you just want an uncomplicated yet satisfying whisky.
