Glenfiddich Cask Collection Vintage Cask
I now introduce a Glenfiddich whisky which is a member of the Cask Collection series available at duty free retail shops.
There are three whiskies in this series. The official descriptions are as follows:
Select Cask: Sweetness, Spice and Citurs
Reserve Cask: Antique Leather, Spice and Oak
Vintage Cask: Smoky, Floral and Intense
My tasted sample was from Vintage Cask.
Glenfiddich Cask Collection Vintage Cask, 700 ml, 40%
Nose: Ashy, little bit salty grass, red apple, brown sugar, licorice
Palate: Rock salt, dark chocolate, toffee, clove
Aftertaste: Medium length, coffee grounds, burnt wood
Comment: Though it is said a lightly peated whisky, it is of island scent and slighty salty and smoky, hardly associated it to a classic Speyside whisky. Not a complex dram but the theme is of clear cut, soft and light with appropriate peat and smoke, an exotic Speysider.
