Nosing: Apple Tropical Fruit Sherry Sweet Cinnamon Vanilla Spices Caramel
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: Fruit Sherry Sweet Vanilla Oak
Intense sweet arrival. Less of the intense fresh fruit from the nose and more dried fruits - apricot. Sherry, vanilla oakiness. Powerful flavours throughout.

Finish: Oak Fruit
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.
