    Nose: Gentle. Slightly spiced. A little butterscotch as well. Very pleasant.

    Palate: Spice coming through with some cinnamon as well. Oak fused with malt flavor as well. Sorry if that’s a little silly but this is just a very subtle dram!

    Finish: As gentle as expected based on the nose and the palate. Nice and easy but goes quickly. Almost calming in a way. Could easily knock back two and head to bed.

    Overall Score: 85. Excellent stuff. I adore mostly all Glenfiddich to begin with but this has been a favorite of mine for a while. I will always recommend this one.

    It is a very fresh and fruity single malt that smells very warm on the nose.
