  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    - a good, long matured Glenfiddich single malt at a fair price

    - The difference in age from the standard bottlings 12 and 15 years is clearly noticeable

    - in terms of taste, unfortunately, somewhat behind the older bottlings (example batch 3293)
    • Nose
      soft, fruity, oak and still a pleasant freshness
    • Taste
      soft, very tasty aromatic taste, old wood / oak (but not as intense as in older batches, some spice, oily body, sherry, fruity, dark berries, sweetness
    • Finish
      long soft dry slightly oak-heavy finish;
      medium-length noble, soft and harmonious aftertaste

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    (Batch 3542)

    N- Fresh with abundance of fruits, peaches, zesty orange, warm honey and vanilla. Charming and adorable, balanced with sour fruits from the robust and fragrant wood.

    P- Light-medium texture and rounded. Fruity sour notes, plum and berries, glucose sweet.

    F- Velvet smooth with return of mix spices, honey and vanilla, but come short on much needed depth and length.— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
