English:
Nose: honey, floral, pear, plum, Vanilla, Bourbon
Palate: in the beginning- sweet, but it quickly gets bitter. Pepper, orange zest, sulphuric, green tea
Finish: alkoholic note, a little bit of metallic note, Honey
It better smells as tastes. I won't buy another bottle
[edit]
The first impression was mistakable. It tastes good indeed. After a few more drams... I'm convinced that this Whisky is really not so bad. For such a price (23€ Sky, Germany), it's a perfect idea to buy it. I have it together (Glas by Glas) with Bushmills 10, which I really enjoy. I must say - both of them are good, but the Glenfiddich is a bit BORING. Perfect to start with.
78/100

Deutsch:
Nase: Honig, Blumen, Birne, Pflaume, Vanille, Bourbon
Körper: zuerst süß, danach gleich bitter. Pfeffer, Orangezest, Sulfur, grüner Tee
Finish: Alkohol, ein bisschen metallischen Noten, Honig
Duftet besser wie schmeckt. Ich werde keine neue Flasche kaufen
[edit]
Die erste Eindruck war verwirrend. Er schmeckt doch gut. Nach ein Paar schlucken... ich bin sicher dass der Whisky ist wirklich nicht schlecht. Der Preis (23€ im Sky) ist eine Super-Preis. Ich trinke ihn mit den Bushmills 10 Jahre alt zusammen, den ich wirklich gerne habe. Ich muss sagen - beide sind gut, jedoch der Glenfiddich etwas langweilig ist. Super zum Anfang

Nosing:
VanillaFruitGreen AppleMalt
Sweet scent of vanila and fresh light fruits mixes with pleasant maltiness. Very light on nose with no noticeable alcohol. Juicy apple and a ouple of peppery peaks reached my nose.
With time more honey-like and caremel flavours develop.

Taste:
VanillaCaramelGinger

Initially sweet, develops into more acidic fruity tones. Oily. Something herbal and stingy, like ginger with a hint of pepper mint, stays for a while on tongue and palate. Next sips bring nice oak, malt and more apples with some a little bit heavier and sweeter fruits.

Finish:
Medium, fruity, oaky and smooth.

Comment:
Quite lovely dram in a decent price. A little bit flat and preatty simple to drink, but yet sippable.
