    The nose is gentle on the initial sniff, soft fruits come through such as pear and peach. Blue candy-ish berries. Classic Glenfiddich notes are still there with lovely brown sugar. Influence of the 21 years in bourbon casks is still there but massively pushed into the background with the strength of the ice wine finish. Time in the glass allows the sweetness to mellow of slightly.
     
    Palate starts of similar to the nose but it is rather viscous. Most of the same notes from the nose are there however there is a rich citrus layer added in. Pineapple so sweet it almost becomes a pineapple syrup. Zestful lemon rind also comes through. Time in the glass brings out more savoury, wax like qualities to the whisky.
     
    The finish is longer than a 20th century Russian novel. Heavy and dense fruits dominate, gentle brown sugar in the background. Waxy/sweet coating in the mouth lingers long after it had been sent down.
