The Glenfiddich Age of Discovery range is released just to the travel retail market until 2012 when the 19 year Old Madeira Cask was released to to the UK retail market to great excitement and applause. However this meant that Glenfiddich needed a new Age of Discovery bottling to replace the excellent Madeira cask, so here we have it - the Bourbon cask a fantastic follow-up that delivers as strongly as its older brother.
Nose: Toffee and vanilla play out first followed by a fruity cocktail of cox apples and spiced orange.
Palate: Caramel and vanilla give way to a leathery quality, with water a spiciness arrives with nutmeg and cardamom notes.
Finish: Majestically long with apple tart and warm spicy flavours.
Overall: A great follow-up to the Madeira cask, equally complex and delicious without replicating what has gone before - top notch!
