sherry cask. The flavors are quite clean and well-defined. Gently sweet
and fruity, with golden raisin, candy apple, and red raspberry jam.
There’s delicate pineapple, dried cherry, coconut, and vanilla too, with
a polished oak finish. A very classy Glenfiddich. Not as bold and spicy
as last year’s 1976 vintage (which I had a hand in selecting but,
ironically, don’t like as much). This new vintage approaches the caliber
of the 1973 Vintage release from two years ago which I still think is
the best one in recent years.
