Glenfiddich PR Bottling Note

Many moons ago, in August of 2010, we received a curious email from Glenfiddich, which read simply "we're sending you something." How very exciting we thought, and sure enough, a wooden box arrived, fitted with a combination padlock. Sadly the padlock wasn't up to scratch, so we broke into it and found a bottle of cask strength 15 year old Solera reserve.

There were some clues and other excitement, and it was all in aid of promoting the Glenfiddich Online Warehouse. You can read our full post here. As you can see, some of the bottle mysteriously vanished before we took the photo! We decided to dram it, so you can try samples of it. It really is a lovely whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A gloriously rich barrage of ripe Pink lady apples, followed by sweet hints of acetone, vanilla and stewed fruits. The orchard fruit and floral nature reminds us a little of Yamazaki 10 and then we’re onto sweet nutty notes; first we get Almond Baklavas, then caramelised hazelnuts, and a hint of amaretto.

Palate: A rush of creamy sweetness. It’s soft, despite its strength. Very sweet on the palate, with more than a hint of Refreshers (the chews, not the tablet version).

Finish: Long, creamy sweetness. Fruity, floral.

Overall: A delicious, if very sweet whisky.
