  1. Moses scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A delicious Speysider in a great bottle plus a great box. Well done. From the 3 series he is my favorite. The PLV is close to the limit, but with bourbon it is completely ok for me.
    • Nose
      I find the nose more appealing than Madeira's. Very floral mixed with vanilla. Wonderfully done with notes of caramel and lemon peel. Light, mild oak and everything very subtle. It comes across as light, seductively sweet and fruity with some pear notes. Respect Glenfiddich.
    • Taste
      He starts fruity and full. Even complex with a mild, tangy sweetness. Hello 19 years! Mouth-filling, soft, full start. Toffee with dried fruits and all kinds of spices. This bottle will keep me busy. All of that with 40%!? ... how does it work? Repurchase is preprogrammed. Wow.
    • Finish
      Medium to long and warming with a malty finish. Respect Glenfiddich! Everything stays wonderfully soft and well balanced. I like that very much. House whisky. Once again I was lucky in the search for the “special malt”.

  2. Albaron scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Strong Malty and beautiful honey and oak notes. Delicious, it's fun, although I would not have allowed him blind for 19 years now, as there are still tannins on the finish like young oak.
    • Nose
      Malty, oak and some solvents, of bourbon, citrus notes, especially orange, herbal spiciness, caramel and a hint of vanilla and honey
    • Taste
      Malty too, oak, herbs, honey, some caramel and citrus, as well as vanilla
    • Finish
      the oak and herbal spice stays long, in addition the maltiness, really delicious and from time to time you can still taste tannins from the oak.

  3. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Received a 3cl dram from a friend. Not bad but not a high roller either. Taste is much to weak for a 19 year old. I can not get exited from this dram and would not buy me a bottle when available at reasonable price. For this money better whisky's can be bought.

  9. valery77 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fruit gum, apples (green, yellow, fresh, baked), vanilla, sweet pastries, honey, cotton candy, floral motifs, freshly sawn oak board, a hint - new leather clothing, a little perfume. Very soft and pleasant. 22
    • Taste
      Medium Moderately dry (at first, and by the middle the dram becomes, rather, moderately sweet). Pepper, malt, almonds, fudge, wormwood bitterness, oak tannins, salted caramel. 21
    • Finish
      Long, warming, gradually fading, slightly astringent. Shades of oak barrels come to the fore, there is also a bit of bitterness in the beer. 22

      Pleasant, non-stressed whisky. In the taste of a small dip, but the flavor and finish are very good. Balance 22.
