Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich 19-year-old

- I really enjoyed the other two of this trilogy. And between Bourbon and Madeira did not know for a long time which comes across better for me. Both in their field at a high level. But this wine finish does not pick me up. Everything on a boring level and easily mass-compatible. Especially the PLV suffers here very much. Not mine, sorry.
Of red wine little left? Only slightly rare malt notes with low sulfur. Now a touch of apricot and rare tea notes come through. Unfortunately, not much happens. Too bad.
The basis is probably the red fruits. Spicy and velvety sweet with woody impact. The red berries are disturbed by light pepper. But fruity notes that gently and gently fill the mouth. Now he has done well again. He is gathering points with a truly harmonious palate feeling. In the middle section he can impress again. But still on a lower level.
Medium to short and spicy. Sour and bitter, it sounds unexpected without red wine. Boring, and no memory effect. He can not make it to my shelf.
- Bought bottle for £60 which I thought reasonable. Pleasant flavours and very easy to drink. Glenfiddich not something I normally go for but will happily buy this again. 46% strength could have improved it but overall enjoyed the whisky.
Baked and fresh apple, vanilla, sweet pastries, flour, cotton candy, ascorbic acid, recently sawn board, furniture lacquer, wet wood, pencil shavings, delicate wine notes, cocoa powder. 22
Full-bodied, moderately dry. Tropical fruits, salt, malt, salted caramel, oak barrel. 21
Medium in length, smoothly fading, slightly astringent. Tannins dominate, oak barrel motifs, a bitter bitterness appears in the middle of the dram. 21
Very harmonious, balanced, “rounded" whisky. Balance 22.
- there are point deduction because
That should go better at this price range.
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
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.
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.
- Very nice fruity whisky. Heavy and oily with a great finish.
Wine, marmalade fruit and light malt note
Fruity, sweetness, trace nuttiness, pleasant oak, very soft
Very long and warming, sweetness of the wine and finally the oak, great finish
- 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!
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.
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.
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.
Fresh. Red apples, dark grapes, raspberries, honey. Orange jelly. Some earth and reeds.
Raspberry cake, vanilla ice cream, roasted almonds. Orange marmalade, Campari. Slightly sticky, medium length.
