Glenfiddich 30

Country: Scotland

Region: Speyside

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 40%

Score: 81 Points

There have been several versions of the Glenfiddich 30 over the years. This one was bottled at 40% ABV, and the nose is subtle with slight hints of spices, dry leaves/grass, dried figs and apricots. The taste has notes of fig cookies and raisin bread with just a hint of butter and cinnamon, pecan and vanilla ice cream and a hint of caramel.  Nicely complex, but the finish seems too short. (2008)
