Compared to the benchmark Glenfiddich 12, this 15-year-old Solera Vat is definitely a step up in quality. Ripe apples, banana and grapes are prominent on the nose, while fresh spices and subtle sherry notes add some complexity. On the palate, the fruity element is pushed to the second row with vanilla cream, honey and cinnamon are driving the event. The aromatic finish doesn't stick around for long, but at this price it is hard to complain.
