I know if I like something, but am helpless when it comes to describing flavors but I can say that I don't care at all for the 12, while I like this bottle a lot.
Maybe if I at least knew what styles were kin to the Glenfiddich then I'd have an idea of where to start searching. This stuff, for my tastes is very good, but completely unlike all the Islay stuff I love so well.
Now that I think of it, it might remind me a little of Yoichi 10, but maybe even better, which might not be such a strange comparison, given that the Japanese liked Glenfiddich enough for it to have rated a $250 a bottle price a long time ago. Not only that, but Yoichi is the distillery founded by the man who went to study scotch making in Scotland back in the 20's.
