I’ve tried, for the first time this month, Glenfiddich Ancient Reserve 18 Year Old Scotch. This is a more expensive whisky, but I found the taste so intriguing, that I had to make it this months scotch of the month.
The taste is faintly sweet, scented with apple and wood. It is robust and full-bodied, yet remarkably soft, rounded and long lasting. This is a very smooth scotch. Comparatively I find that the older scotches have a less bold taste then those aged for fewer years.
As always, please enjoy this months scotch responsibly.
