Taste note

  • Colour:

    Amber

  • Nose:

    Smells like a garden full of fruit, light of different kind of apples, pears and honey.

  • Palate:

    Quite thin and sour at the beginning - a bit hard, some tropical fruit, but more sour. I don't really taste a hint of the orchard, although some custard notes eventually creep in.

  • Finish:

    medium length, warming, oak spice and some bitterness.

  • Conclusion:

    Defiantly something new and fresh from Glenfiddich and makes you wonder what else they got up their sleeves. Overall a tin and watery mouthfeel. Maybe if they finished it longer there would be more complexity from the Somerset Pomona spirit.
