- Tried it blind yesterday at a tasting.
Nose quite closed, maybe a bit bourbon style smell.
Taste, didn't pick up it's 26 years, some sweet vanilla notes, a bit oily but also some hars alcohol notes. Not suberp in my opinion. Medium long finish, pretty soft.
N: Malty-light yet with a superbly weighted oily body.
T: Same again. This light oiled, well-aged style is simply ideal and faultless in its class.
F: Dunnage-light on chalky bung cloth.
C: If this juice wasn’t so precious/expensive [rrp £350, Aug ’18], I’d have a serious drinking problem. Beautiful lubricant.
Scores a B+

Spices, apples, cake, cream, oak cask, licorice and pepper notes on palate.
Apples, vanilla, a little bit pepper, oak cask, cream brûlée and ginger notes on long finish.
- A delicious whisky.
Show nut and sweet, you smell the bourbon barrels.
Oak and unmistakably sweet vanilla sugars, this is really delicious !!!
Wonderfully long and complex.
- A typical representative of Glenfiddich, but as soft and soft as no other. Very tasty, but I would like something more edge / character.
