Nosing: AppleTropical FruitSherrySweetCinnamonVanillaSpicesCaramel
Fresh fruit, apple and mixed tropical. Sweet sherry, cinnamon rolls, vanilla and other spices. As you let it sit in the glass the fruitiness dies back and a dark toffee note comes up.

Taste: FruitSherrySweetVanillaOak
Intense sweet arrival. Less of the intense fresh fruit from the nose and more dried fruits - apricot. Sherry, vanilla oakiness. Powerful flavours throughout.

Finish: OakFruit
Finishes somewhat dryer, and long. Lingering fruitiness and oak.

Comment:
I picked this up as part of a tasting set and it was well worth the try. The nose in particular is outstanding, you can see the relation to the younger Glenfiddich releases but this is a different beast entirely. Unfortunately it comes with a price tag to match, though I can see why people would be willing to pay the extra. Really decent stuff.

Nosing: GrapeBlackberryMaltCloveFig there is smokiness but it's ever so faint in the back. not super noteworthy.

Taste: SherryChili on arrival, then PineappleFruit and PepperChili all the way through.

Finish: Peat SmokeMaritime NotesDried Fruit very solid and lasts.

Comment: Very different and I enjoy this. Almost reminds of brandy, but a lot to unpack!
