Palate: Rich and spicy, cinnamon and crushed black pepper rest on a base of deep earthy notes, caramalised fruits, crystallised ginger, raisins and hints of dry oak.
Finish: Pleasingly dry with warmth that fades into a lingering sweet marmalade finish.
Overall: Smooth and satisfying, this is an interesting whisky that wears its Madeira cask maturation on its sleeve.

Worth every penny

This is worth every penny as Glenfiddich compared with one of its rival companies namely Glenmorangie they rarely delve into experimentation with cask finished whisky and they tend to stick with bourbon and sherry finished whisky so when the age of discovery line came out, the bourbon, red wine and this one were warmly excepted by critics and customers alike. Glenfiddich's gentile nature due to it been at 40% ABV has been used with this Madeira finished dram and Madeira been the key word here has had some very intriguing affects on this gentile dram with its earthy marmaladey and fig like taste is a step out of the norm for Glenfiddich and is defiantly going to go into Glenfiddich's cupboard of curiosity's. If you do some home work about this dram you can see that the whisky community has accepted this as been one of the greats of the distillery and with time the price will rocket for this line as it has already started to do. Keep it up Glenfiddich we are all enjoying the fruits of your hard work and labour!!!
