  • Excerpt: I had thought it would be much fruitier. What’s good is that this new ‘experiment’ isn’t too expensive, around £45. The bottle is superb.

  • Excerpt: All told, I really love this expression — and am shocked at how generally affordable and available it is. Can’t wait to see what’s next in the series.

  • Nose:

    Melon, mild hoppiness, standard doughy yeasty sweet apple Glenfiddich notes

  • Taste:

    sweet, grainy, melon apple, odd funk, astringency, vanilla

  • Finish:

    medium odd heat for the low proof, apple funk and vanilla no hoppiness

  • Overall:

    Seems like IPA in nose alone. not present in the taste or finish. astringent, hot, young, and just a faint hint of those standard fiddich notes. I'm really glad I tried this because I would not purchase this myself. In fact, I think Id take the OB Glenfiddich 12 or 15 over this with little to no hesitation.
