Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich 1964 HB

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.20 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    What happened with some of these old Glenfiddich's from the 1960's (I had the infamous Cadenhead dumpy 1965 once...)? Nose is absolute fantastic (95 points), the palate unfortunately doesn't deliver (79 points).
    • Nose
      Wow, gorgeous nose with lots of sweet sherry and beeswax notes. Dried fruit of plums and figs. Fruitcake and sultanas. Kirsch liqueur. Also chocolate and roasted chestnuts. Balsamico vinegar at the background.
    • Taste
      Ouch, after the fantastic nose the palate is more on the soapy side. Bitter coffee and burnt wood. Roasted nuts as well. Spices of carraway and cinnamon. Hickory. Marmite at the end (I don't like marmite...).
    • Finish
      Quite long. Lots of tannins with corresponding oaky sourness. A little ginger. Eucalyptus at the end. As expected not very well balanced.

  2. Whisky scored this whisky 70 points Specialist


    If you have a bottle: sell it, give it to someone with a bad breath or just look at the bottle. Only the nose deserves a few points. Can't imagine somebody likes this at 95 points
    • Nose

      Rather good sherry notes in first smell
    • Taste
      Ouch did I leave lavender soap on my toothbrush? Can't taste anything now.
    • Finish
      Even more soap, what a disappointment.
