  3. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    there are point deduction because
    only 40%
    colored
    filtered
    That should go better at this price range.
    • Nose
      88 88
      very fruity.

      Sweet vanilla with red fruits. malt
      Complex. No alcohol noticeable.

      A nice nose, if you like it sweet and fruity
      Wine, marmalade fruit and light malt note
    • Taste
      84 84
      a very soft start.

      Sweet, maybe the sugar with some aspartame.

      Then again the red fruits, cherry with red currant, with walnut.

      The oak is only very noticeable.

      The age tastes you.

      Very soft, unfortunately a bit weak because of the 40%. I would like to drink it with 46% or cask strength. That would certainly be much better, he has what it takes.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium.

      If sweet and fruity, the sweetness is a bit artificial.

      Out of the throat comes some oak with walnut and malt.

      On the whole a fruity flatterer.

  4. stefan_PB scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Very nice fruity whisky. Heavy and oily with a great finish.

      Very long and warming, sweetness of the wine and finally the oak, great finish

  5. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very pleasing, aromatic single malt from the Age of Discovery series, satisfying nose and palate equally. The red wine cask finish brings in rich fruitiness and well-dosed sweetness but without overwhelming the distillery character. This is nicely balanced with a warming spicy core. A really pleasant surprise. Water isn't necessary at all! 

    https://www.whisky-connaisseur.de/tasting-notes-english/glenfiddich/
    • Nose
      Pleasantly fruity on the nose with red cherries, raspberries, red currant and yellow apples. This is complemented by vanilla and a rich wine aroma. Hints of  white pepper and oak spice in the back.
    • Taste
      Subtle sweet but fairly fruity start on the palate with wine aroma, red cherries and raspberries. Creamy even velvety. Then warming spices arrive with cinnamon, white pepper and oak, followed by a touch of bitter grape peel towards the finish. The delicate warming pepperiness increases with a second sip.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, warm and creamy. Slightly sweet with red berries compote, a touch of grape peel, oak and tannins on the tail.

      With water: Water enhances the fruitiness on the nose with more yellow apples, red cherries and berries and wine flavours. Even citric notes and juicy oranges arrive, nicely mixed with creamy vanilla in the back. On the palate, however, the lovely sweet and fruity notes are significantly tamed, while dry notes of oak, tannins and bitter grape peel take over. The finish is short, subtle warm and dry with oak, tannins and a hint of creamy fruit jam on the tail.

    Trilogy
    of AOD, after the excellent Madeira (90) to just good Bourbon Cask
    (82), feeling are this RW Cask would fall in between the two. N- Open up well with some nice old malt here, rusty iron, match box
    boosted with juicy peaches, apricot, subtle burnt powdery tea leafs.
    Probably some musky wood there too. Balance, complex, pleasant. P- Non aggressive, no rush, gentle and mild manner. Consistent layers
    of nutmeg, then comes the peppery notes, some kind of tropical fruits
    which I unable to identify, but this is delicious.

    F- Medium,
    silky and firm body. Touch of sourish treacle with echoing white
    peppercorn warmness remains. Masterfully balance, no hints of any
    unfavorable tannin, but in fact I am anticipating a bit more red wine
    character in this.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
