GLENFIDDICH 19yr Old Madeira 70cl

Deep amber in colour, with an initial aroma reminiscent of fruit and nut chocolate, with a mossy note behind. The fruits are both fresh (pears) and caramelised figs, angelica, sultanas; light fruitcake, gently infused with Madeira (scarcely apparent), with a warm pastry note behind. With a drop of water the nose opens and gains Speyside characteristics (pear drops), and a light meaty note, like roast pork. It has a pleasant smooth texture, and a light body; sweet overall, fresh, spicy and drying in the finish. With water the sweetness is reduced somewhat, but it remains fresh and spicy (stem ginger - Black pepper), leaving an aftertaste of almonds in the medium length finish.
