Glanfiddich Fire & Cane

Picked this up on a whim at the KGBO the other day.

Had an exploratory sip last night. WTF?

Colour me confused. First, I think I quite liked it (I mostly drink Islay malts). A bit on the sweet side but can see a role as a winter night cap. Second, rather unexpected. Third I’d have had no idea it was Glenfiddich. Something from Islay, maybe. More than smoke there was peat and a touch of iodine I think.

Was my palate having an off night or is this an odd duck. Would love to hear from Glenfiddich aficionados.

I hated this, worst innovation from GF in a long time.
