Glenfiddich Hand Bottled

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whiskey differently from me.

This sample was kindly donated to my blog by The Exclusive Dram – a company whose aim is “to allow anyone the chance to sample some of the most unique and expensive whiskys without breaking the bank!”

Colour:

Gold.

Nose:

Very fruity – plumbs, cherries and sloe berries. Vanilla, custard, brown sugar and a touch of pine needles.

Palate:

Vanilla to start leading into fruits – blackcurrants, plumbs and cherries. Underneath the fruit is a hint of oak and spice and a slight nuttiness.

Finish:

Sweet, fruity and syrup. Very drying.

Overall:

A really rich, fruity dram and at 59% it’s got a good kick to it. Really enjoyable and a big step up form your standard Glenfiddich 12 year – I’d happily drink this on a regular basis. Unfortunately you can only get your hands on this by going to the Glenfiddich distillery – on the bright side that would give you another excuse to plan a trip there šŸ˜‰ If like me though you don’t get the chance to visit distilleries often you can always pick up a 50ml sample from The Exclusive Dram for only Ā£9.99 here.
