Spotted in the Bishopbriggs store so thought I would share for those who may be interested. Still £85 plus at various online shops so it’s a fair bit off the rrp.

This is a limited edition release from Glenfiddich, The Original is based on Hamish Robertson’s 1963 Straight Malt recipe, considered by many to be the world’s first single malt. Slightly sweet with notes of pear and vanilla. Comes in a presentation tin as you can see.

Nose: Light and grassy, with barley water, meringue, lemon and vanilla. Dominant cereal notes balanced with unripe banana and pear.

Palate: A peppery spice initially, then coconut, custard creams, lime and malt biscuits.

Finish: Quite short, with some tropical fruit, cask char and toasted malt.

Overall: A little underwhelming, to be honest. It’s an easy drinking whisky but it doesn’t have the depth or complexity I was expecting from a nigh on £85 bottle. I appreciate the youngish liquid in the 1963 Straight Malt may well have tasted similar to that in The Original, but I can’t help feeling a trick was missed here somewhere along the way.
