  5. Alex scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    a tad weak and thin due to the low strength, but ideal for single-malt-beginners. Nice dram though, the nose is the best part.
    • Nose
      sweet white wine, floral notes, apples and pears. Polished wood and wood spices. Mellow and nice nose
    • Taste
      pleasant sweet and bitter; honeyed, fruity and floral framed by a lot of oak. A tad thin. Easy to sip.
    • Finish
      medium long on more wood spices (pepper and cinnamon) and bitter grapefruit

    The hint of vanilla, as well as the smooth finish, makes this an `easy drink`.

    Consider to combine it with Walker`s shortbreads.

  7. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A replacement for the popular Gran Reserva (itself a replacement for the
    Havana Reserve), Glenfiddich 21yo is still finished in rum casks,
    although the rum is simply referred to as `Caribbean` after the
    unfortunate controversy the old Havana Reserve caused amongst the
    American brethren.

  8. Feusi scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Peculiar sweetness permeates into the nose (perhaps the rum cask?). Unusual but sweet and very pleasant to drink. At a Rum tasting it would be interesting, how the friends decide...
