  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    For the birthday a beautiful malt - unfortunately without age - but in noble metal box with metal knob cork and certificate.
    • Nose
      immediately dry wood smoke, herbs, yellow fruit (peach);
    • Taste
      fruity (citrus), honey, wood smoke, then seasoning (pepper, oak);
    • Finish
      medium-length finish with a fine hint of smoke, oak, becoming dry;

    has gotten really expensive so not worth it anymore, i like the balance of fruits and peat though
    • Nose
      stewed fruits, butter, honey, light earth, peat
    • Taste
      honey/caramel, milk chocolate, dark fruits, smoke, peat, sweet grass, citrus
    • Finish
      medium, butter, salt, honey, grass and nuts at the back followed by caramel and stewed fruits

    Interesting release this one. I probably appreciate Glenfiddich better without the peat but like the limited releases that offer something else. Sometimes it can go really well. This would be much better if the fruity notes normally associated with the distillate came forward a bit more and it is doable. AnCnoc Stack is an excellent example of a fruity spirit that keeps the distillery character despite the peat smoke. A spirit that is more balanced and not smothered by the smoke.

    Rating interval 75-80
    • Nose
      Malty with lemon and quite substantial peat smoke in comparison with the what is usually detected in Glenfiddich. Smoked licorice, salted banana and some canned fruit cocktail behind the smoke.
    • Taste
      Soft arrival with salty peat smoke. Some ripe banana and vanilla on the development but the peat smoke is really upfront revoking the fruity notes.  Became slightly better with some water though.
    • Finish
      Savory and smoky with salted banana in the background which disappeared rather quickly. Expected a longer finish from the palate.

      Rating interval 75-80

    I would never get blind on Glenfiddich. That's something else. I like it in total. A little more volume of alcohol would have been nice. Gladly more of the experiments.

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Not bad, reminds me from memory at the https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/73214/ardmore-tradition-peated and when I read my notes on this, that fits quite well. Only is the for less than 40 € / liter instead of 100 / 0.7 to have. So interesting experiment for Glenfiddich, nice expensive tin can, but to drink then rather the Ardmore tradition.
    • Nose
      clear, but moderate dry wood smoke (already at the opening of the sample), then grassy-bitter notes, which küchenkräutriges ... similar oregano, behind a gentle, tart chocolate note what burned-nutty; with a few drops of water I get some apricot / peach
    • Taste
      here too wood smoke, dry old wood, old kitchen herbs, quite spicy, pepper, a little nutmeg, dark chocolate
    • Finish
      medium, the smoke is, plus pepper, walnut, burnt rolls
