- Original retail price: ~130 €
- what a shame to dilute a basically good whisky with such a proud age to the minimum.
Then you can find yourself great when you drink something so expensive because it is perhaps the only whisky that works for hipsters. Old, expensive and goes down like oil - no, rather water.
If you have tried to have a say, if instead of 500 it would cost 100 euros or less, I could put one on the shelf for the guests.
So the taste is badly clouded by the underground price performance ratio.
Nice, medium-length, uncomplicated finish.
- 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
- A real great whisky. Very complex, seductive nose. He also convinces on the palate, even if he runs out of power at the end. More percentages would have been helpful here. But definitely a very pleasant experience.
Sweet and light-fruited beginning; a slight solvent note. Vanilla and cinnamon; a hint of plums and spearmint. Later spicy with a hay and oak
Sweet at the beginning with plums and cinnamon. The vanilla is back. At the second sip then much spicier, bitter, woody. The alcohol is very well integrated and slightly peppery.
Very long finish with clear oak note and nuts. Moderate bitterness. However, he lacks some bite.
Elegant. Extinguished candle, liquid wax, old library. Then baked apple with a little cinnamon and vanilla sauce. Freshly peeled oranges behind it. Wet garden soil, moss, a hint of eucalyptus. A trace of pipe tobacco.
Silky, slightly oily. Apple pie, some nougat and candied orange pieces. Dark chocolate, dried apricots, walnuts. Some lemon, wax and a hint of incense.
