This was the third bottle opened today and I must say it was nice to change from a Blend (Chivas 12) to an Islay (Ardbeg 10) and finally onto a Speyside (The above bottle). 3 Distinct and different bottles, and all with something to say.

On the nose this was rich and reminiscent of chocolate with a bit of orange and toffee. Nice presentation for what was to come...

Well rounded and sweet chocolaty body with a hint of the Caribbean and some lovely fruity undertones.

Finishes off with an orange peel inkling and maintains the chocolaty flow. Warm and lingering.

Overall impression: Warm, soft, and well balanced dram highly complimented by the rum casks. an excellent choice in the Glenfiddich line although slightly on the high price tag side.

An 87 from me.

Yeah, this is a genuinely good whisky. Not sure it is worth it's price tag, but very nice with a lot going on.
