Hi Steve we opened ours just this last week. Its definetly Glenfiddich but with a toffe flavour. Almost like having one of those bluebird toffee's that you had as a kid. Whist sipping glenfiddich over the top, its okay but you wouldn't want to drink only that in my opinion.
The note I made when I first tasted it was "Syrup!!!" and that was all.
The impression I formed was that it was too sickly sweet for my taste. Not sure I got past that. It didn't feel clean, if you know what I mean - too sticky and not a great deal to it.
My bottle has been open for two weeks now. Had a dram again last night, it has definetly improved since last time. I know what Criefy means by it being sweet, but I did not notice that so much this time. I'm definetly getting to like it more.
I was lucky to have a friend bring a bottle back for me on a recent trip to London. I have only had one dram and it was ok. Not excellent but not bad if that helps. I probably would not buy again but I will have a dram now and again. There is just not much going on with it. It is a little syrupy but not overly sweet IMO. Just no WOW factor going on. I guess it's a good every day dram if that's what you are looking for. Just a little bland. You could do worse for the price tag.
