Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich Grand Cru

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.29 points

  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A half decent malt, but you don't get too much bang for your buck. Would probably have been better at 43 or 46%.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Quite complex on the nose with plenty of sherry notes coming through.
    • Taste
      83 83
      A wee bit thin with the flavour failing to distinguish themselves - some critic notes, some dryness and a slightly spicy aftertaste.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Christingle - like wax dripping onto an orange.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Great aroma, bright, rich, festive, rich in shades; the taste is already simpler, a lot of oak, the palette is poorer, the finish is even more reduced, by themselves they are not bad, but, in comparison with the aroma, alas, they lose a lot.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, dried boards, vanilla, candied fruits, Montpensier candies, sweet fruity notes, tropical fruits - kumquats, mangoes; light mineral shades, a little carpentry workshop.
    • Taste
      Thick, rich, strong oak notes, tobacco, sweet pastry shades, grain, vanilla, lemon slice in tea, nuts, leather goods.
    • Finish
      Light, refreshing, oak, leather goods, tobacco leaf, vanilla, nuts, custard.
