    • Nose
      Fruity, fresh, light and flowery
    • Taste
      What indicates in the nose continues in the mouth - mild, supple and not sweet. Alcoholic note, which disappears when adding water and decreasing bottle level.
    • Finish
      Fruity finish that fades quite fast

  6. FedeBosco scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Nice starting dram, the one to offer after dinner, not complex and not "masculine". My first Glenfiddich.
    • Nose
      Oak, medium oak, medicinal, something between green apple and pear (green pear too, not the yellow...)
    • Taste
      Sweet, vanilla, a hint of brown sugar, nice but very soft (for a long time drinkers like you folks)
    • Finish
      The Green Apple/Green Pear remains for a while, sweet.

  7. granella2003 scored this whisky 66 points Connoisseur

    Matured for a minimum of twelve years in oak barrels. Glenfiddich is the only Highland whisky distilled, matured and bottled at its own distillery. Colour: light golden yellow. Scent: fresh and fruity with a hint of pear. Taste: rich fruit flavors, pine and a hint of peat. Bearing: at least 12 years in traditional oak bourbon barrels and sherry casks

  8. granella2003 scored this whisky 66 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Green apple, ripe pear, buttered honey, malted grain in the background timber and almonds with hints of soft vanilla
    • Taste
      Soft and slightly bitter opening of roasted nuts, almonds, pear and a hint of clove which are followed by sweet ingredients like honey, vanilla, apple juice with hints of nutmeg. Light and elegant flavors.
    • Finish
      Green apple with hints of spices, not very long duration

  9. drkrylov scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Aged for 12 years in American and European Oak casks.

  10. Edwin de Lange scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A comfortable, widely known malt.
