Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Aromatic. Damp cellars. Earthy and rooty. Dundee cake. A touch of orange peel and pot pourri. A distant smoky note.
Palate: Sweet but vivid. Refreshing. Barley sugar.
Finish: Lingering, warm. Leafy, becomes bitter with water added.
Comment: A more sprightly Glenfiddich than the standard 12. Thirst-quenching. Peatiness and the smoked finish aren't as 'distinct' as the label suggests.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Soft malty, cereal notes: ground hazelnuts, vanilla, oak and light smoke.
Palate: Sweet, malty and lightly fruity. A slight woody catch on the tongue then the smoke builds up.
Finish: Perfumed smoke then a medicinal note.
Comment: An interesting experiment...but why not just peat some Glenfiddich and see what happens? You'd have a genuine peated Speyside malt.
