.glenfiddich – 14yo – rich oak

40% abv, €35, single malt, caramel E150 added

Nose: sweet, honey, vanilla, fruit, raisins, fresh, bees-wax
Palate: sweet, honey, dry, fresh, floral, heather, tannins
Finish: short, fresh, sweet, vanilla, dry, fruit, grapes, banana, raisins
Mark: +++++

Conclusion: Nice, she is a bit dry though, also because of the tannins. A good description would be: whisky. She could have favoured from a higher abv.

More info from the website: “We bring a completely original finish to single malt Scotch whisky. After 14 years maturing in fine Spanish oak and American Bourbon casks, our Malt Master carefully selects virgin Spanish and American oak casks to release extra layers of aroma and flavour into our whisky. The first virgin American and European oak finished whisky in the world”.
