    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.

    [May, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 90 Euro in April, 2013.

    [May, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 85 Euro in March, 2014.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5 both times.  My notes state a subtle and delicate dram with no "oompf" at all.  But dangerously quaffable...

    N: at first, it's a 'strange' nose: it's not as fruity as you might expect and it does not have as much pronounced vinosity as the finish in Madeira could bring. Instead there is a lot of dried fruit and lots of dehydrated fruit (a real riot of dried figs); it must however be said that the 'typical' pear of the young Glenfiddich certainly does not lack the appeal. Remember some Maghreb pastry, made of honey, dried fruit, almonds ... It is not a 'fresh' nose, it is nice but always pleasant. Slowly the vinous notes emerge. A few tips of cinnamon? Overall, that's good! P: rather simple, rather short, rather pleasant: 40% do not make it seem 'watered down' at all, but they definitely remove (a lot) in intensity, rounding it up too much. After a successful debut based on brioche, malt, dried fruit and raisins (with strong buttery notes), everything vanities a bit 'quickly, going to flow ... F: ... in a final with a frankly bleak consistency. A vague, winy feeling, marsalata (ok, it's Madeira, but we mean, right?), And light notes of vanilla. To a very particular nose, really promising and intriguing, it corresponds to a substantially flat palate and a final almost not received. http://whiskyfacile.com/2012/11/19/glenfiddich-19-yo-age-of-discovery-2011-ob-40/
