  1. corbuso scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A very dry and rather tannic Glenfiddich. The distillate is good, just too much wood

    Review at whiskyfun in Jan 2019:
    Glenfiddich 44 yo 1964 (55%, Kingsbury, Japan, hogshead, +/-2008)
    A whisky that’s notoriously dry, pungent and simply whacky, but let’s check that. Colour: totally coffee. The hogshead must have been ‘treated’ in some way. Nose: one further step towards pine resin and black ‘maduro’ tobacco, roasted pecans, more old walnuts, walnut stain, thuja wood, fir needles, cedar… My this is dry and woody! But that’s usually no problems on the nose, it’s on the palate that things might go awry, we’ll see… With water: few changes. The calm before the storm? Mouth (neat): what a concoction! Things start okay, in fact, but it’s soon to become immensely soapy. I’m sure some good folks would be okay with this, but to me it’s almost like drinking shampoo mixed with teak oil. Very hard. With water: could have been even worse (pure ink), but frankly, this is almost Head & Shoulders Classic Clean 2-in-1 Anti Dandruff Shampoo. Quite. Some hard oak too, a touch of dry coconut oil… Finish: rather long, very bitter, very soapy, and certainly not moreish. Comments: something must have happened somewhere. Strange that our Japanese friends would have selected this around ten years ago, that is to say when they were still having some glorious genuinely age-stated sherried Japanese malt whiskies! That’s right, Yamazakis, for example…
