    This one was on my bucket list for a long time; one of the first bottles of Glenfiddich single malt of the 1960's (for the US market). Unexpectedly good in both nose and palate. Never had such gentle bitter-sweetness of pink grapefruit in a Glenfiddich.
    • Nose
      Wow, starts very fruity with lots of pink grapefruit bitter-sweetness intermingled with yellow apples and juicy pears. Followed with pineapple cubes and a little mango. Hints of rhubarb as well. Touch of fresh cedar wood at the background. This is gorgeous and reminds me of the best Benriach 1976 bottlings I tasted in the past!
    • Taste
      Now more citrus fruit of lemon, lime and gooseberries. Kiwi fruit and peel zest. Also strawberries and passion fruit. Again very nice! Later on whispers of butterscotch and some cinnamon. Chamomile herbal tea. Toasted chestnuts as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Nutmeg. A little ginger. Liquorice at the end.
