As we approach the landmark of Malt Mission #300, we also get closer to a big change in our lives. More on that tomorrow.

Named after the water source of Glenfiddich distillery, this blended whisky is not often seen anymore. As far as I am aware this is a discontinued blend from William Grant and Sons although it is still available in some Latin markets (South American, Spain).


Soft and floral with some chewy, dense vanilla and a touch of smoke.

Malty, smoky, sweet and vegetal like potatoes and cooked turnips. Turns drier and more salty but overall very soft and easy. Dry, oaky finish.


Great blend of characteristics from across the wide world of whisky, all well-bound together.
