Glenfiddich 18yo Ancient Reserve
Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The last Glenfiddich I had in this whisky tasting adventure was Malt Mission #28, where you can find notes on history and facts about the distillery.
Big and rich, well-rounded nose. Sweet with apples and spice and honey and oaky with, well, oak. Some soft smoke in there, too.
Malty sweetness with definite smoke and a great toasty flavour, sherry, tobacco, some leather and hot cross buns. Can't help but lick your lips. Finish is a perfect balance of the flavours already mentioned, is just long enough to finish the flavour development in its pace and just short enough to encourage you to get that glass back up to your lips.
Not many words needed; very good whisky. One more sentence? For my taste, this knocks the pants off Glenlivet 18 tasted yesterday, but many would disagree. And thank goodness or else I wouldnt waste time having an opinion at all.
