Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Glenfiddich 14

Glenfiddich Bourbon Barrel Reserve 14-  With a nod to American spirits and as a way to get us far far away from American politics, I present this modest diversion.  The magic herein is due to the lengthy stay in deeply charred bourbon oak and man did it ever work.  The rich amber color and ultra silky mouthfeel are most welcome on a fall evening. I found a unique mash up of corn and vanilla sweetness and a delightfully long finish.  The 86 proof is bold enough to make a statement and yet still is mellow enough for everyone to enjoy it neat as intended.  The nose is crazy sweet almost like a dessert, yum……While the leaves in our area are changing and flying, grab a bottle of this and enjoy it outside, somehow the spirit and the fall action enhance each other perfectly. Now if we could just have a choice other than cranky old guys for the most important job in the land!  I rate this blue labeled beauty a solid 8 on the snob scale.  Slainte
