Personal taste: CPGIMKFSFRJHAverage Some of the remarks
Package/Info 677-75 Nice, elegant, pipe dark brown - red/brown, but not that much info. In-print. Standard boring Shitcolor
Label 6-8-87 Realy nice Glenfiddich label. Nice but a bit dark (boring). Nice. Nice Jugendalike. Decorative
Bottle 8-8-888,00 NICE NICE NICE. Triangular brown/green. Typical Glenfiddich. The characteristic Glenfiddich bottle. Beautiful decanter almost pharmaceutical color
Cork   45-4/55 Cork plastic. Plastic top Arrrrrhg.
Color 324-25 Weak weak weak almost transparent - clear. (Danish : Fesen) Clear and boring. Almost white - Matured in plastic cask ? - I should never have exchange whisky with Glenfiddich (HB). Pale.
Smell 322-3/43/4 A bit weak - but lovely sweet. None. Not much. Alcoholics would love this one. Boozing your eyes. Typical Glenfiddich. Anonymous
Taste 768-6/77 Really good - creamy and soft - light sweet - Very Soft. Cold light aperitif alike. Incredibly soft, Mild accessible. Mild very surprising acording to the smell, not spirituous, a bit to mild an extra point because it's Glenfiddich - They have improved themself. Caramel, sweet without a touch of spirituous.
Palate 666-2/37 Not long enought - but delicious sweet. Becomes deep but disappears - a starter. Missing something. What/which/where ? - .
Price/Quality 777--7 A better Glenfiddich. Okay.
