Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich Grand Cru

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.87 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very sweet, caressing, subtle touch of citrus, appetizing.
    On the palate, a touch of cereal, surprising at this age, made in mature notes. Very wise and slightly vinous. Smooth, but without that being a reproach. Noticeable reduction, but never watery. Creamy and delicate.
    Light, subtle and classy finish.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Whisky n ° 2157

  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Smooth, soft whisky with a good enough balance, but very diluted. In my opinion, he lacks density. Why 40% ?! Why not 46%, but even better 50% ?!
    • Nose
      Bright, filled with noble shades of old skin, fresh pastries, vanilla, white grapes and custard. Very well!
    • Taste
      Dry, malt, with citrus acidity and delicate tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium in duration, tender but watery, with echoes of spices, corn bread and lemon, with a pleasant aftertaste of “junk” and oak.

    Finish falls off, this would benefit from a higher ABV
    • Nose
      Fresh pastry, lemon cake, white wine, orange zest, beautiful citrus fruits, a bit of pear, powdered sugar
    • Taste
      Grapefruit, Yuzu, white wine, baguette, line seed oil
    • Finish
      rather short and flat, cookie dough, orange zest
