Glenfiddich 18 Small Batch Reserve

This dram has a wonderful colour thanks to its maturation in Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks. These casks are hand selected by the Malt Master for these small batches

I found the nose to be really fruity with apples and the wee kick of citrus. That then gives way to cinnamon and chocolate

There’s more cinnamon on the palette with lots of toffee and tinned fruit. There’s also a sweetness that reminds me of barley sugar

The finish is long and smooth with more sweet toffee and hints of rum

It’s taken me a long time to sample this dram but it won’t be long till I’m doing so again!
