Today my daughter and I did a sleepover at my parents, which was a blast - highlight being cracking open the Snow Phoenix I had bought my father for Christmas (my mom wouldn't let him open it until I was there, lest he guzzle half the bottle in one sitting). Even my mom loved it. A clear golden colour, like sunlight, it has a clean citrusy nose, very floral, with some pear. Malty with some hay in the background - very clean. A creamy palate, with more pronounced lemon notes. Honey and more pear. The hay on the nose becomes straw in the mouth. Long, lingering but fresh finish - a crip, perfectly balanced dram. While I am no expert on the Glenfiddich range, I found this to be very nice, light, perfect for the Saturday afternoon that my parents and I sipped it while my daughter played with her cousin upstairs. That it coincided with the day I booked my Speyside Whisky Festival tickets made it that much more prescient.
