The Glenfiddich 15

50 ml airline bottle

Glenfiddich-15Tasting notes:
Mitch McConnell, Tomas de Torquemada, and Zac Ephron walk into a bar… This expression from the venerable distiller allows us to imagine the conversation of malts aged in three casks finished in a Solera vat. The nose and inviting color give little indication of what is to follow. It’s bracing heat! It’s a blow to the face that tears the eyes and bloodies the mouth! In my puzzlement, I, I–have I somehow given offense? Then the voices begin. Lychee tea stirred by a sandalwood spoon. Punctured inner tube dipped in a weak soapy solution. Blade meat crumbles dried on a Boos butcher block. Marzipan rabbits on polystyrene trays. There are too many voices! Make it stop!


–On the scale of war poems– 
The Glenfiddich 15 is “The Second Coming” by W. B. Yeats–for “things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.”
