Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich 15-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.40 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    In general, not bad, smoothed and polished, but not boring and dull, like an 18-year-old, but a lively, pleasant initial-level melt.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, green apples, yeast dough, fresh newspaper, wood dust, fallen foliage, oak board, vanilla.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweet-oak, light pepper, ginger candies, confectionery notes - sugar glaze, cookies, cake with jam;
    • Finish
      Light, warming, orange peel, lollipops, light oak notes, grapefruit peel, apples.

  3. malthead-sven scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Still a solid malt, the 3% more alcohol in contrast to the original 15er evaluate the nose on something else, but no difference
    • Nose
      It starts predominantly fruity, tangerines, a little brownish apple, applesauce, then come lemons, later pastries, cinnamon rolls and butter biscuits, some wood
    • Taste
      sweet and not particularly heavy, yellow fruits, mirabelle, grapes
    • Finish
      rather short to medium, it flashes once again sun-ripened fruits

  5. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Definitely a winner from Glenfiddich. It hits all the right notes for one interested in this kind of easy drinking flavour profile.
    • Nose
      As advertised, honey and raisins. Definitely fruit, sherry, and cocoa, with some underlying citrus to liven it up.
    • Taste
      Light in the mouth, with more of the promised honey, warm spices and rich fruit, oak, and butterscotch.
    • Finish
      Lingering spice with echoes of toffee and fruit.
