- A good one.
with rich vanilla and toffee.
spicy and then turn to vanilla and caramel and finish with some dried apricots,
all wrap with oak wood.
with spicy and wood oak notes.
- Initial sweetness can be disturbing but then this whisky develops nicely. Nothing dreamy and exceptional just a nice dram but impossible to get it at a decent price because of the collectors madness.
Very sweet with loads of vanilla. Candy shop. Overall nose it's not so heavy so the sweetness level is acceptable.
Starts hot with some pepper and spices almost immediately replaced with vanilla and caramel. Raisins and dried apricot, vanilla again and white pepper.
Medium long finish fading with wood spices.
- It started off to sweet in my book, but recovered to
become an excellent malt in the end. Sometimes it pays to be patient. Thank
The nose is quite special, actually. It reminds me of
candy sticks at first. You know, the hard and twisted lollypops that you can
sometimes find in Christmas trees. The fruit hardly gets past this. Loads of
vanilla and caramel. Nice spiciness, though. But it is a little bit too sweet
to my taste. Liquid candy.
It is very creamy on the palate, with soft spices
(ginger, cloves, coriander) with enough punch to be interesting. Again a touch
too sweet. Caramel and vanilla, vanilla and caramel. Lollypop on spices. Wait,
wait! Dried apricots and sultanas. Ah, the fruit is emerging. Even better, it
develops beautifully on the palate, but you need to chew it for a while. Yes,
by the third sip it is bulls eye!
On the medium long finish, the sweetness is supported
magnificently by the wood spices.
Light fruity aromas with a sweet edge and full tones of raisins, dried apricot and soft vanilla with a delicate undertone of gegerste malt and oak
Slightly fruity and sweet begins with notes of raisins and dried apricot and a hint of sweet vanillaThe flavors that follow are more savory and spicy oak, ginger and black pepper follow
Long finish that is full of spicy notes
- It tastes good to me, a bit monotonous but still delicious, somehow I do not taste any typical Glenfiddich flavor, good substance!
gentle sweetness, vanilla with subtle herbal notes
a bit spicy at first, it needs air, a hint of vanilla is first felt, after a few swallows it changes and becomes very herbaceous, almost like a light bittersweet, surrounded by a pleasant sweetness
a bit too short
- Cask of Dreams is a special marriage of Glenfiddich whiskies taken from a
hand-picked selection of American oak casks holding matured whiskies of
a variety of ages, with the youngest at 14 Years Old. This whisky was
then filled into the 11 inscribed casks and left to finish in the
virgin American oak to bring an intense and powerful vanilla sweetness.
The casks were closely monitored to ensure a desirable balance of the
oak’s vanilla and spice with fruity, floral aromas, with Kinsman finding
perfect balance after 3 months of finishing and at a high strength of
48.8% ABV. The distinctive packaging highlights the cask as icon,
reflecting not only the participation of the thousands who had a hand in
making this whisky but also the Glenfiddich distillery’s commitment to
integrity, with an on-site traditional cooperage that is the only one of
its kind left in Scotland.
- The Glenfiddich team took the barrels across the US and asked people to
commit their dreams and signatures to the barrels themselves. When the
barrels returned to Scotland for filling their were thousands of
signatures and dreams written upon them.
