Because I mean, wow. I know that I have not paid much attention to you lately. I mean, you're not exactly full of surprises, and yet, color me surprised. The amount of fresh zippiness, and oo-de-lolly, that I get on the nose is like nothing else I have sampled this year. Amazing honey. So freaking rich. The vanilla and caramel and spice come in well mingled with the honey, but come out more in the finish. Are there any Glenfiddich apples in there? No. Apple blossoms maybe,spent, emptied apple blossoms, super wild honey-suckle, and a wet walled, dripping sensation of flowing honeyed-resin soaked wood, trying to wrap itself around this USA only reminder of just how good 55 dollars can be. Snatch this up now.

Truth be told - I wasn't impressed with this Glenfiddich.

For $50 - I could've gotten 2 bottles of Buffalo Trace bourbon which I'd much rather have.

Don't get too wrapped around the "scotch-for-bourbon-drinkers" press that this one gets - There is no mistaking this as scotch. I love it for its prominent wood presence, like a wetter resin/honey soaked version of the Compass Box Oak Cross.
