Number 3 of my exploration of the Glenfiddich line.

Nose: Ugli gruit, citrus, apples, butterscotch, light peat smoke. A good nose.

Palate: Sweeter than the 15 and also richer. Toffee, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, the sherry note is much stronger here. It makes me think of a more heavily spiced Glenfarclas 12.

Finish: Medium. Butterscotch, ginger, and the spices come back.

This is good, but for my money I prefer the 15. All around a solid and affordable 18 year bottle. Though I don't think this one shows the maturity you'd expect from that age.
