Nose
Shows good maturity. Oak-driven and spicy with soft, sweet, black fruits - blueberry and sloe. Lightly vinous with plum jam, apple, light chocolate, dried cherry. Slightly mossy.
Palate
Balanced. Soft fruits backed with crisp sweet oak. Gentle, fleshy and smooth with a tongue-coating quality. Damson-stone bitterness gives balance and stops it being too jammy.
Finish
Clean, thick, sweet.
Comment
A new land for Glenfiddich and the drinker. Recommended.

Nose
Farm-like. Cowshed, wet straw. Milk parlour. Butyric. A grassy touch. Lemon balm. Sweetmeadow flowers.
Palate
Sweet at first but immediately followed by an oaky grip which releases bitter notes. Getting fizzy. Dry cider. Ginger. Dark chocolate. Sweeter with water but not really palatable.
Finish
Dry and fizzy. Numbs the tongue without water.
Comment
That farmyard profile is a bit too much. And the palate is dour though sweet. Lacks balance.
