  1. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A nice peek into the past, a touch of old bottle style, but not entirely different or superior. Don't even know if I would prefer this one over the new 12 if it wasn't something long gone. Worth a try but not a bottle at 180+ EUR imho.

  2. Jeep51 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A detonating mouth compared to the classic nose. The 30 years of bottles have probably changed this whisky and the result is far from negative
    • Nose
      Fresh, simple, a bit of hair. Essentially cereals and some fresh fruits. Slightly floral. In the distance, these metal notes, old pieces, workshop (grease).
    • Taste
      Much more interesting in my opinion. First, it seems much more powerful than 43%. Then we find the OBE who has completely taken possession of the liquid. Copper piece, pencil lead, coal, pepper and very sharp floral notes in the middle of the mouth (roses for sure, can be peony too). Astonishing.
    • Finish
      Relatively long, peppery and fresh at the same time.

  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Rather floral/perfumed both in aroma and taste.

  4. Feusi scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very bright, straw yellow in the glass, the green bottle hides the color. A real fruit bomb rises into the nose, sweet ripe fruits such as pineapples, mangoes, perhaps? I take a sip and am surprised at how fruity sweet this drop is due. Almost a liqueur in fairly long finish will hang this beautiful, well-balanced sweetness. At the end get a little woody spicy notes on the palate. No wonder Glenfiddich was able to convince with this quality the world and thus ascend to the best-selling single malt.
