Glenfiddich is the best selling single malt whisky in the world. So one can expect that he'll be soft and sweet, to be able to be appreciated by such a large audience. This Pure Malt Special Reserve completely confirms this.

The nose is full, very fruite with a hint of pear. Sweet, but not in a bad way - at all. This is going to be one sweet dram!

The golden color and medium body also seem to be screaming: 'sweetness ahead'!

This is confirmed with the very first sip, that is full and sweet indeed! No peat anywhere that I could discover immediately. It's only faint in the background. It's fruit that dominates this Glenfiddich.

Just so you know: 'glen' means valley (which explains why so many drams from the region have the word 'glen' in their name) and fiddich (pronounced fiddick) means deer. Now the label makes perfect sense.

The finish is very nice and soft, but neither long nor short. Let's say 'medium'.

This easy-to-drink soft malt makes you long for more.

I must admit, while I started with the Glenfiddich range and as a result I have a fondness for them, I am often left a faintly disappointed when I do return to the lower-end vintages.
