…..Colour: gold. Nose: it’s really fine, starting with nice fermentary notes, not winey notes, and going on with some bread, brioche, apple pie, and even notes of natural wine (vin nature). I enjoy anything fermentary anyway. A little chalk as well. Mouth: j’aime bien! I mean, I rather enjoy this indeed, it’s got quite a lot of breads, brioches, croissants, cider and ale, honeysuckle, mullein syrup, white peaches… It’s really very good, even at those slightly greedy 40% vol. Finish: a tad short, but never oaky, and pretty natural again. Very well done. Comments: why not 43%, if not 45 or 46? The juice is really worth it! Some top-notch Glenfiddich nonetheless. But please, a slightly higher voltage next time, 40% makes it all look a tad avare. I mean, stingy. 43% Alc./Vol. 87 points – Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
