Glenfiddich Cask of Dreams, 48.8%

Price: $99 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: Dave Broom

A vatting of different ages of Glenfiddich (the youngest being 14 years old) aged in American oak, then married in virgin American oak casks on which folk from the States had written their hopes and dreams…Awww! Deliciously fruity and clean, it's all pear juice, crème brûlée, fudge, cool mint, and dessert apple. With water, there's dusty cinnamon, kiwi, and milk chocolate. The oak acts as a smoothing base for this fruitiness. A lovely idea and a lovely whisky.
