  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Water: No, it's pretty thin

    Conclusion: And again a successful experiment that transfers Glenfiddich to another level. Harmonious and well-balanced, in the mouth then the surprising after the nose Torfexplosion, while he returns in the finish to its roots. But unfortunately too weak on the chest, why not fill a drop with 46%? Then this malt would have become a hit with a little more maturity.
    • Nose

      Gentle, but noticeable dry smoke (charcoal fire, smoked bacon), preserved fruits such as peach, pineapple and apricot, malty and sugary sweetness of beet syrup (Grafschafter Goldsaft), overall very harmonious, but a bit thin
    • Taste
      85 85
      he starts with a marked sweetness of sugar and a fruit cocktail, then the smoke hits with unexpected violence, the smoke also has significantly more peat flavors than in the nose
    • Finish
      85 85
      unfortunately this is a bit too short, next to the peat smoke, of course, the sweetness comes through again, but this does not dominate, behind you can then notice with the pear notes, carried by some oak the typical Fiddich 12yo distillery character

    sweet Glenfiddich, very complex and gentle, blossoms, vanilla, sweet green gruits, and then there is some peat! the peat it not overwhelming, just hints of it in there, but that mingels perfectly whith the light Glenfiddich style of this younger Single Malt. With a higher ABV this might have been even better ... but that is just an uneducated guess. Real fine dram!

  3. Dottore scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Delicious Glenfiddich with a fair price. Roasted aromas on the nose, freshly roasted cocoa. Somewhat floral-flowery and quite fresh-fruity. Glenfiddich typical apple and some pears. Bread notes. Gentle on the palate, too gentle for me, 46 or 48% would have been desirable here, Glenfiddich gave away a lot of potential, incomprehensible! Light oak, some vanilla and cinnamon. White chocolate. Apricot. The finish is subtly bitter. Cocoa and rather short. Conclusion: Beautiful whisky, which unfortunately was not allowed to fully develop its potential. Nevertheless, successful experiment! 83 points

    An obviously partly young, but nevertheless good and interesting Speyside- Malt - Successful series - fair price!
    • Nose
      fruity (peach, apricot), malt, spice, very soft wood smoke;
    • Taste
      intense tingling fruity onset, yellow fruit, juicy oranges, spices, oak, subtle smoke, cereals, malt; complex;
    • Finish
      a short, sweet, malty finish!

    This is not whisky, it is more some old lady's parfum. I am sorry but this kind of marketing juice is not for me.
