Glenfiddich is the most award-winning whisky in the world – having won more awards at the International Wine & Spirits Competition and International Spirits Challenge than any other since 2000. Part of the experimental range, the Winter Storm is aged for 21 years and finished Canadian icewine casks. A marriage of tropical fruits and wine notes come together on the nose, with hints of Turkish delight and lychee on the crisp finish.
Nose: lots of candied fruits, apricots and candy apples, mixed with vanilla and whiffs of potpourri. Some tropical notes (pineapple, papaya) and subtle fresh oaky notes. Sweet and winey, but in a nicely fruity way.
Mouth: same fruitiness with runny honey, a hint of Moscatel and vanilla. Quite tropical indeed, even some lychee, but also balanced with some zesty citrus and marmalade. Herbal oak towards the end, with a light bitter edge.
Finish: quite short, with caramel notes, wine and some oak tannins.
