    interresting to drink an old style glen fiddich.. different taste profile than current ones. less pear and apples... 
    • Nose
      somewhat sharp, notes of citrus, pear and vanilla with some wet paint.
    • Taste
      sweet, with some hints of grass and honey, but quite flat
    • Finish
      some floral notes with some hints of chocolate and black pepper, but quite short.

  2. karloff scored this whisky 55 points Specialist

    This whisky has been in this bottle for about 25 years, now I don't know where or how it was stored and whether it has effected the whisky but I found it a bit bland, especially for a Glenfiddich. Really disappointed, I thought it was going to be something special. (no pun intended)

    I swapped a bottle of Bourbon for this thinking I had a great deal and it looks like I got the worst of it.
    • Nose
      A fruity nose of melon, green apples and pineapple chunks. Citrus and wet paint linger in the back ground. Nothing special and nothing unusual.
    • Taste
      The taste is fruity and sweet but a bit bland. Slightly smoky with touches of grass and melon.
    • Finish
      Short and sweet and a bit disappointing.
