Re: Glenfiddcih Live Tasting - Favorite
The Oldie was the Goldie for me.
The 30 just had an extra dimension I've come to appreciate in my (limited) experience of older whiskies...like taking the best and giving it a constant subplot. Have'nt had too many, but, while they remain recognisably of a certin distillery, there's just that...mmm factor, a refined dryness that seems to underpin and meld the flavours, bringing out mesmeric subteties...
Also noticed this same thing in the 1946 Macallan(sample only- courtesy of Bob Dalgarno!) the 36 YO Longmorn SMWS Rasta Malt, and Ardbeg 1977(which may not actually be that old...but it was like the 10 with a subplot!)
But I doubt I can afford a bottle of GF 30!!
I'd be happy to have the 15(again) or the 18 in my collection. The 15 had it on smoothness, the 18 on finish. both great drams.
I dream of a CS version of either!
Glenfiddich definitely has regal tendencies!
