Excerpt: Believe it or not, I prefer the 19-Year-Old in front of me to Glenfiddich's OB 18 Year-Old. The nineteen is more complex and satisfying--even though its younger cousin has a longer and a drier finish.

This is an interesting release from Glenfiddich featuring 19yr spirit that was matured in Madeira casks.
Sweet bread, apples, honey. Light fig. Jammy currants. Leather, faint spice, like clove and cinnamon. Vanilla cream. Very muted, overall.
Thin mouth feel. No heat, though. Vanilla, some leather. Light tobacco note. Faint sweetness, some jammy blackberry. Musty.
Short, abysmally one noted. Vanilla, cinnamon and light currant. Then its gone.
I dont often complain about ABV on scotch, but this needs more. This was interesting, but so muted, closed off and just timid. It was really hard to get much on the palate and the finish, and Im left disappointed. Ill take 15yr Solera over this any day.
