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.
