Nosing: LemonGreen AppleVanillaSweet very subtle Peat Smoke

Taste: AppleMaltOak

Finish: relatively sweet Oak , a shift toward somewhat Medicinal Smoke but still faint. General Fruit presence consistent with the nose and taste experience.

Comment: Definitely a Glenfiddich. Smoke is just noticeable enough to be true to this whisky's marketing. Indeed, perhaps a good dram to introduce peat to the uninitiated, as fruit & sweetness are also well integrated in this offering.

No doubt a bit kitschy for some, but enjoyable if one is looking for an easy-going scent- & flavor-first experience ahead of dogmatic expectations.
