    • Colour

      Rich golden.

    • Nose

      Fruity and floral with the hallmark Glenfiddich hint of pear. Subtle oak notes and a youthful, biscuity character.

    • Palate

      Pleasantly sweet with lively fruit notes and a soft vanilla oakiness. Flavours develop with the addition of a little water to reveal delicate spices, citrus and fresh baked oatcakes.

    • Finish

      Deliciously dry.

    I'm new to the Scotch scene, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. All of my favourite notes were hit with this one, classically Glenfiddich with a 'raw' edge in tasting and overall pleasant to sip away on a cold day. The price is higher, but only comparable to how much you want to try it. I can't tell you if its worth it to you, reader, since palates can very between every being. But I'd say it was well worth it to myself, in-fact, I wish I bought 2 to hold one for later.

    Light but gorgeous. Very fragrant with luscious notes of orchard fruit, vanilla, and even bubblegum. Some will find it too light and sweet. The retail price is rather steep but I got mine at clearance price and would buy it again.

    I found this expression very disappointing. You would do better to buy the 15 and 18 yo expressions which are delicious and save some serious money in the process.

    delicious. pale colour, delicate flavour but lasts on the palate. Expensive but well worth it.
