Intriguingly complex aroma with sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits.
Silky smooth, revealing layers sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full bodied and bursting with flavour.
Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.
Wine Enthusiast 95 points - Look for rich, rounded flavors with lots of honey, vanilla and baking spice notes. The palate is creamy, with a mouth-filling texture and smoky finish. (Dec 2013)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Deep gold, near amber, hue. A generous nose with aromas of sherry and sea spray. The palate is rich with flavors of toffee, salt water, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper spices. The texture glides, while the finish has oxidative sherry notes, caramel and peat. There’s a lot going on here. (Mar 2013)
A 15 year old matured in American bourbon, Portuguese sherry and virgin oak. The whisky was then married in a Solera vat. This is a great staple 15 year old from the Glenfiddich distillery.
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.
