Melon, mild hoppiness, standard doughy yeasty sweet apple Glenfiddich notes
sweet, grainy, melon apple, odd funk, astringency, vanilla
medium odd heat for the low proof, apple funk and vanilla no hoppiness
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.
