1.This malt should be tested together with the standard 18er. In direct comparison, it shows its mass compatibility. Others would say that is too boring. I would say that's the bottle that should not be missing in any household.
An absolute all-rounder without corners and edges. Very independent with distillery character. I think he succeeded well.
A beguiling nose. Like at the Christmas market.
Apple Helene with bright fruits, hazelnuts and a little coffee. There is some oak, but the nose stays sweet. No bitterness. Burnt almonds get through and still no stinging alcohol. Wow, good barrel choice.
Surely nothing is to be expected with this drinking strength. But he does it all right with apple helene and spicy nuts without being bitter. Even bright fruits come through.
Again, everything was done right. Respect Glenfiddich.
Medium to long with malty note. With light pepper on caramel, he says goodbye silently and quietly but with a clear message, ... pour again please :-)
