Not quite sure what the point of writing a review for whisky is, as it’s so subjective. What I like you might not, and vice-versa. But, here’s my two cents worth anyway, and in fact, this is a whisky that just might suit everyone... My view - it is absolutely beautiful. It has a slight sweetness to it, with a hint of caramel and toffee, but also a bit smokiness as well and you can certainly taste a little peat. Notice the use of the words “slight”, “hint” and “little” here. This is a very subtle mix of flavours that work perfectly together. I am a fan of your peaty Islay malts - the Laphroaigs and Lagavulins of this world. And whilst this whisky doesn’t hit you in the face like those do, there is still a sense of smokiness that tells me there’s an undercurrent of fire here. My friend doesn’t do peaty malts at all, being a fan of the likes of Tamnavulin and Glenmorangie (and that’s fair enough, they’re lovely). The thing is, he also really likes this whisky. The peat is just enough for him, with the tasty lingering sweetness he loves still present. The point is, we both really like this whisky, and we both have very different tastes. Fire and Cane says it all - it really is peat and sweet. But both are subtle, neither is overbearing, and they both work so well together. Whatever your tastes, I recommend you try this whisky, it might just be the one for you too.
Second of the Glenfiddich experimental series I've ordered for a Christmas presents, last one arrived in the Glenfiddich box as would expect for the price, this one arrived just as the bottle in Amazon cardboard packaging. Bit disappointed as it's being given as a gift and was misrepresented with the picture showing it sitting beside the Glenfiddich box it should come in.
I bought this expecting something special but, honestly, it just had a Jonnie Walker taste. I’m not expert enough to know what that is but I buy Glenfiddich to enjoy a decent single malt, not have the taste of a blended, common scotch. Ultimately, just not in keeping with the Glenfiddich flavour, if you like this, you’re better off buying Jonnie Walker for less money.
This 'experimental' malt was, for my tastebuds a strong with a rich peat flavour, reminiscent of the western isle style malts. Overall, a tasty whisky with great depth and body which will suit those who enjoy a peaty dram... although they, Glenfiddich, do say some may taste this as a sweeter drink and not find it peaty... strange... but that's the experimental bit... have a go, see what you think.
Not a bad whisky for the price. I found it to be more smokey than sweet. Surprising, considering the dark caramel-brown colour. Aroma is very subtle. I usually prefer whisky neat, but with this one I found that a splash of water or an ice cube helps open up the flavour. Good choice if you wan to try something different, but don't expect fireworks either. It's an interesting budget single malt.
Struggling guys to give a good review you could spend the money on another good malt and enjoy , if your going for querky Mmmm even then without going into full smell and taste I’m kind of saying spend your money more wisely
