Number 2 in my vertical tasting.

Nose: Red fruit,maple syrup, orange peal, pear, star anise, light peat.

Palate: Light and yet complex. Citrus and sweet. Butterscotch, cinnamon, hint of smoke. Quite tasty.

Finish: Medium. Mostly vanilla and cinnamon.

A very good expression from Glenfiddich. Adds some much wanted complexity and the flavors meld nicely. The finish is the only area I found a bit lacking. Would be really nice to try at a higher ABV than 40%.

Of the 12, 15, and 18. This is the one I like best, especially considering that this can be found for around $40 US.

Yeah, this is indeed a fine dram - it was the whisky that got me into whiskies, so it holds a special place in my whisky pantheon!
