Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweetish. Beeswax. White chocolate. Hint of ginger.
Palate: Satiny. Sweeter, more honeyed than most versions, with the characteristic pears-in-cream emerging.
Finish: Apple wood flavours and light smokiness in a gently rounded conclusion.
Comment: Luxurious, but in a restrained, understated way.
8.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: "Quality Street" dark chocolate sweet with soft lemon inside with kumquats and nuts.
Palate: Delicate malt notes followed by a prickly spice and then a menthol backwash revealing great age.
Finish: Simple and clean. Vanilla at first and then bourbon-style oak notes.
Comment: Rarely does Glenfiddich pass 21 years unscathed by time, but this has done much better than most.
7.8
