A very collectable and very pleasant dram created by inclement weather and quick thinking. Severe snow storms caused the roof of a Glenfiddich warehouse to collapse. The surviving casks were pulled together to create the no age statement Snow Phoenix.
Nose: very fresh, caramel, fruity banana is prominent, also floral notes and spices a beautiful summer dram. With water a little richer, a buttery note really comes through, but drowns out the complexity of the nose.
Pallet: really clean medium body, fruity again, not so much banana, some wood spice and light caramel and butter carries through. With water much spicier mainly malt but some wood spice too, overall more savoury but more complexity
Finish: medium in length some citrus and spice hangs around. With water quite dry, fruit returns , quite a noticeable peach note actually, lovely clean feel.
Mark – Neat 8.1, with water 8.3
Overall: its a good whisky, great in summer or mid afternoon and one of the few single malts i enjoy with a rock. its not great or amazing but i like it, and if it was common id always have a bottle.
