    Typical Glenfiddich character. Balanced and for the 40% he is great. I had tested the Madeira because I wanted to get the set. The PVL is a bit too high for me though. Is close to the pain threshold for me. I decide that only after the complete rehearsal.

      Here the nose gets to feel the age. Oranges, apricots and a touch of lime behind them. Now a sweet vanilla with caramel and honey.

      Sweet dark fruits with spicy sweet oak anticipate. Bright chocolate on apple Helene in berry compote. Sweet and almost floral, it shows good balance.

      Wonderfully viscid he stays medium in the mouth. Sweet but quite dry with orange peel. Behind it the sweet vanilla again. Really nice and soft. Nothing is pressing. He always goes.

    This one doesn't appear to have spent much of the 19 years actually in a madeira cask. Compared to an Arran Madeira finish, the typical notes are weak,
