is harmoniuos. The beautiful baked apple scent on the nose, the
delicate honey and fruitiness on the taste and lingering spices on the
finish. Well balanced, smooth, and delicious, no water needed. To me,
one of the best 18 yo single malts on the market at a truly bargain
I thank Markus Heinze (Brand Ambassador for Glenfiddich in
Germany) for the sample!
Very elegant and rich on the nose with a distinct fruitiness. There's
mainly orchard fruit and baked red apples coming through with lingering
malt, sweet toffee and vanilla. Even a whiff of citrus notes appears in
the back with delicate oak, cinnamon, and a touch of Christmas spice. A
very pleasant nose!
Sweet and rich with delicate dark honey, baked red apples and a hint of
citrus coming through. Very fruity with concentrated dark fruit. Spicy
oak arrives with cinnamon, cardamom and some nice winterly spices.
Long, smooth and still sweet finish. Very distinguished and warm with lingering honey, cinnamon and crisp dry oak.
WITH WATER: There's not too much change on the nose with water, except a
bit of increased freshness. However, the elegance of the neat nose is a
bit tamed and less expressive with water. More spice is coming through
on the palate while the fruity sweetness along with honey is still
dominating here. The finish is still long, significantly vibrant with
lots of prickling spice.
