I was at this restaurant recently, where I asked for Macallan 12, and the was told they were out of the Macallan 12, and offered Glenfiddich (didn't mention the year).
When I nosed it, I got a very distinct leather and a good hint of tobacco (and something I would describe as cigar smoke). I don't remember much else of it, as the leather and the tobacco just blew me away.
Since then, I have had Glenfiddich 12 as well as 18, but didn't find the leather/tobacco I was looking for. So I think what I had at the restaurant wasn't Glenfiddich.
Which of the single-malts would come close to my limited description above?
Or could it be that it was indeed Glenfiddich, and what I had to eat with it created this distinct memory?
Appreciate any responses!
Thats the only other one I can think they would have in the restaurant around a similar price point to the Macallan.
It's got a bit of smokiness about it and its made using the Solera method (used in Brandy) so gives it a bit more character.
Not personally a Glenfiddich man.
Both the 12 and the 18 had a fruity-ness about them, which I don't recall tasting in the one I am looking for.
Will try the 15 yr solera reserve, but am beginning to think that it wasn't any of the Glenfiddich's at all.
Has the restaurant got a website with an online drinks list? If they have then take a look on there and post the list of whiskies they stock
