  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

    Nose:
    Very fruit driven nose. Green fruits with touches of passion fruit
    backed up with very well judged vanilla. There are floral overtones –
    Jasmine?
    Palate:
    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.
