Even after 30 years of maturation, there is an unmistakable Glenfiddich in the nose: apple, pears, flowers, malty fresh bread. After a long smell, the whisky becomes sweeter, more vanilla and subtle, exotic notes of coconut and pineapple pour out of the glass. That the whisky will probably lack volume, unfortunately, can already be guessed. In the mouth, the slightly diluted character is confirmed. Despite everything, one notices the age of the oak cargo, the aromas are very harmonious, sweet and bitter notes balance each other. Bitter orange, beeswax, honey, alpine herbs, apple biscuits.
The finish warms chubby, oak remains long. Conclusion: great old Glenfiddich, unfortunately missing a few percent to an absolute grenade. Nice experience and further proof that Glenfiddich is able to produce excellent whiskys off the beaten track. 88 points
