Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich 15-year-old

- spices, oak, combined with quite a load of vanilla and honey. sweet fruits all over with a very nice ABV. mingesl nicley. body and finish are more intense than with the 15yo Solera, finish is longer, with more spices and more oak. that is some nice dram!
- This one was bitter and oaky. I tried adding water and it didn't help. Personally, I'd go for the Solera Reserve.
Soft oak, apples and pears, and nutmeg.
Bitter floral oak, and then more oak, mustard greens, apple schnapps, and a bit of vanilla.
Citrus and grappa.
- A nice Glenfiddich with balls. The higher ABV certainly helped in that regard. Around 45 EUR, which is a fair deal.
The nose is quite interesting. Not as light as you would expect from Glenfiddich. In fact, it is a bit naughty. Loads of vanilla and woodspice precede the fruit. I get mostly apples and pears, but also some peach and milk chocolate and an unexpected but lovely trace of woodsmoke.
The arrival is very nice – good body – with its 51%. Loads of pears now, together with all kinds of spices from the wood. Ginger, pepper, bakery spices and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and paprika powder. Nevertheless, it remains nicely soft and sweet.
The finish is the highlight of this malt. Medium long on peppered pears and some cinnamon. A trace of oak at the death. Fine.
- Nose: bitter oranges, grapefruit, vanilla, oak, clove and cinnamon
Very slow development when adding water. After half an hour, much more vanilla, honey and also pear.Taste: again the bitter oranges and vanilla. Quite peppery with clove and nutmeg spices from the wood.Medium aftertaste with grapefruit, pepper, nutmeg and bitter oakiness.
The higher bottling strength is a bonus, but I am not completely convinced by the character of the woodspices in this whisky. The cask influence might have gone a little bit too far here.
- Despite high alcohol content, beware of water!
Orange, apples, honey, raisins, melon, touch of pear and peach
Cinnamon, orange, toffee, currants, apples, melon, pear, peach, oak and light pepper.
Long, warm, orange, raisins, cinnamon and light pepper
- Perhaps the case when the increase in strength added density and power, but broke the balance and slightly spoiled the flavor, compared with the regular version.
Sharp, dry, sawdust, stain, herbal notes, sandpaper, lemon zest, fresh board, a little dried fruit and creamy coding tones in the background.
Thick, tart, spicy oak, dried fruits, apple confiture, malt, creamy notes, ginger, orange peel
Spicy, lollipops, lemonade, light oak notes, mint, eucalyptus, dried apples, raisins,
