The most prominent flavour which I think no one can deny is fresh pears, there is also a fair bit of vanilla, some floral notes, I also pick up a slight touch of Bourbon which I don't find that often in single malts despite the fact that they are matured mostly in ex-bourbon casks. I also notice a sort of cereal/grainy, almost earthy element to it which I believe comes from the way Glenfiddich heats its wash still's, which is the traditional method known as direct firing that very few distillery's still do because it is not as efficient as internal steam heated coils but it does contribute to the flavour. There are some sherry casks in the mix but the influence is quite subtle on the nose and palette, however, it's on the finish where the use of these casks really shows up the most. It has to be one of the best and most interesting developments to the finish of any of the younger malts (up to 12 years old) I've come across.Read more ›
But part of that is the value proposition and the price here (as reviewed today) is around £33 including delivery. Even if the delivery were free both Tesco and Waitrose offer the same product at £25. Waitrose deliver free for orders over £50, so I just added it to our weekly shopping.
So - a wonderful whisky that introduced me to the delights of single malts, but at a price that I can't recommend unless your circumstances mean that Amazon is your only available option for delivery.
