Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich Excellence

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.63 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur


    N: Malty-light yet with a superbly weighted oily body.
    T: Same again. This light oiled, well-aged style is simply ideal and faultless in its class.
    F: Dunnage-light on chalky bung cloth.
    C: If this juice wasn’t so precious/expensive [rrp £350, Aug ’18], I’d have a serious drinking problem. Beautiful lubricant.

    Scores a B+

  5. EarlMobile scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    A typical representative of Glenfiddich, but as soft and soft as no other. Very tasty, but I would like something more edge / character.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Very fruit driven nose. Green fruits with touches of passion fruit
    backed up with very well judged vanilla. There are floral overtones –
    Soft and plush on the palate. Liquorice, vanilla, toffee with cooked
    spices –nutmeg and cinnamon. Soft old leather and charred pineapple.
    Finish: Medium to long. Pleasing warmth with some spice from the tannins.
