Only the rarer whiskeys, those aged for 21 years, could cope with the extra Icewine intensity. Having more tannins, extracted from years in oak, these malts brought out a uniquely fresh lychee note instead of being swamped by sweetness.
The taste is a perfect combination of both pioneering liquids, the heightened candied sweets, and oakiness of Glenfiddich are complemented by mouth-watering tropical fruit notes and a luscious sweetness from the unique Icewine cask finish.
Nose: A bouquet of tropical fruit and candied sweets are perfectly balanced with underlying wine notes.
Taste: Soft sweet notes reminiscent of candied fruit and Turkish delight develop into flavours of mouth-watering lychee. The fusion of sweet flavours is soon met with a rich drying sensation from the Icewine.
Finish: Short and crisp.
