  1. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Dried fruits, raisins in rum, warm and sweet, fruity, some wood, a hint of vanilla, aromatic and pleasant.

    At first arrack-sweet, then spicy with oak, not bitter ...

    warm, soft, sweet-tart, balanced, at the end fading sweet in a very long finish.

    The Rumfässer are best seen in the smell!

      sweet, soft, fruity (ripe fruit), caramel, light rum note;
    • Taste
      aromatic, mouth-filling onset, fruity, spicy (leather, oak), slight dryness;

    What can I say? One of my favorite whiskys, of which I always have a bottle on the shelf. Beautifully gentle and balanced with a fine rum note. Always a pleasure.

  8. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I never cared about Glenfiddich much, but I find this dram really good. Maybe tt caught me off guard a bit.
    • Nose
      Fruity notes of pineapple, melon, papaya and mango, then some sugar, honey, caramel, exotic wood, some aromatic spices and herbs. Alcohol is not perfectly masked.
    • Taste
      Rounded, thick, oily even. Very sweet with white chocolate, honey, cheesecake, caramel, fudge, exotic fruit salad and the slightest touch of lemon.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy pepper at first, after a moment the sweetness of the exotic fruits adds up.
