Nose: Loads of fruit. Zesty grapefruit, baked toffee apples. Dry, chocolate Flake-y wood and cinnamon.
Palate: Candied fruits and Glenfiddich freshness balances richer notes of dried apricot, more cinnamon and toffee, ginger and dry Sherry.
Finish: Peels and a touch of salted toffee.
Overall: A wonderfully rich and enjoyable Glenfiddich single malt.
Nose: Sherry, citrus – orange in particular, dry wood. Slight suggestion of smoke?
Palate: Medium, sherry, raisins. Fruitcake, spices, sweetness.
Finish: Candied fruits, raisins, spices, Christmas pudding, oak takes over.
Nose: Grain. Slightly floral, mineralic. Spirity, orchard fruit, malty, honey. Citrus develops.

Finish: Sweet, touch of oak and general fruit, oily.
Overall: Stereotypical Speyside. Consistent – a good benchmark.
