  1. erogers scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This is a wonderful whisky.  It really surprised me.  It completely negates the negative comments I have read about Glenfiddich being a “beginner’s malt” or a “mass produced, industrial malt.”  It is a beautiful combination of many different flavors, and definitely tastes its age.  It would have scored higher, perhaps a 92 or 93, if it had not been chill filtered and bottled at 93%-96%.  40% is just too weak, and makes its mouthfeel somewhat thin.
    • Nose
      Very complex.  Honey, white chocolate, sherry grapes, raisins, plums, and dates.
    • Taste
      Lots of oak wood, baking spice, cinnamon, candied fruit with nougat.
    • Finish
      More wood on the finish, along with sweet honey, marzipan, and cinnamon/nutmeg.

    Easy and accessible, nose is richer and better than the body and finish.
