I was on the hunt for a relatively inexpensive Speysider of high quality. After a thorough perusal of reviews I decided to purchase this gem. I am occasionally led astray by this rather contemplative method of choosing whisky, as a future review will illustrate, but not this time.
Nose: as advertised, honey and raisins. Definitely fruit, sherry, and cocoa, with some underlying citrus to liven it up.
Palate: light in the mouth, with more of the promised honey, warm spices and rich fruit, oak, and butterscotch.
Finish: lingering spice with echoes of toffee and fruit.
Definitely a winner from Glenfiddich. It hits all the right notes for one interested in this kind of easy drinking flavour profile.
