    Glenfiddich 18 @43%

    A cracker baby! Not complex, but immensely enjoyable. Think what would it be at 46% even...
    • Nose
      Beautiful. It opens up to prominent baked apples and cinnamon. Then comes the Glenfiddich pears, along with vanilla cream, banana pudding, and mild milk chocolate. Yummy!
    • Taste
      A sense of sophistication. Delicate sherry and beautifully sweet spice. Oranges and the darker fruits. Turning into bitter oak at the end. The body is a bit flat even at the extra 43%.
    • Finish
      Clean, not long. It's all lovely dark chocolate and lingering cinnamon. Turning to bitter oak.

    Very much all is simple, from 18 years you expect more, and that that is so is smoothed and polished, that the individual character of whisky is lost. Weak and inexpressive.
    • Nose
      Apple jam, lemon in sweet tea, dried apricots, dusty wood, raw potatoes, floral-fruity notes, wildflowers and grasses in the summer noon.
    • Taste
      Wood and spices, dried apricots, raisins, bitter-sweet, simple, oily.
    • Finish
      Spices, black pepper, ginger, lemon zest, sweet and sour tea with lemon, raisin water - quite simple and not rich in shades and semitones.

    Overall a pretty good solid whisky. However for the price compared to the 15 I would go with the 15 when comparing most major distillery expressions. 89/100
    • Nose
      Floral and a bit nutty. Hints of vanila and honey as well. 
    • Taste
      Pretty full bodied, medium roundness. A pretty complex whisky; coffeee and chocoalte with slight hints of citrus as well. Amonds and marzipan. 
    • Finish
      Medium finish going from the earlier floran and citrus notes to a deeper chocolate and coffee taste.
