I'm a big fan of Glenfiddich in general. While I've had some ridiculously outstanding kick-in-the-crotch casks, it's the core range that I often return to when I need a down-the-middle, dependable malt. This one was fun to try and tasty, but given the fanfare that surrounded its release, I expected more pizazz. Maybe figure that bias into this review.

Mild nose of hard candies, cotton candy, mixed Planters nuts, kind of a solid and traditional malt nose. Palate is nutty and oaky, moderately peppery, not sure I get a lot else, although it's certainly fine to drink and wouldn't complain if asked to do so at length. Very long finish, oaky fade. 

Overall I wish this were sweeter. It's nice, but overoaked for me. A down-the-middle, tannic and contemplative malt.
