Glenfiddich 125th Anniversary. Glenfiddich released a liited edition to celebrate 125 years of whisky production in 2012. It is presented with aseperate copper stopper and a leaflet providing information on the release. Glenfiddich used a combination of peapeted and unpeated whiskies aged in Spanish ex sherry butts as well as American ex bourbon casks.
Soft heathery peat, roasted cashews, charred wood and creme brûlée. The peat combined with that classic apple, pear, raspberry fruity note is intoxicating. Nicely balanced. Water doesn’t change things up much.
We have vanilla, marmalade and red apples up front, soft peat and toasted oak in the back. Herbaceous. Mouth-watering. Not as balanced as the nose, but fascinating – both peaty and very smooth, though a little metallic. Like with the nose, not much change with water.
The medium-length finish shows camphor, cigar ash, cinnamon and more caramel.
