  1. Achany scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nose is at first quite unimpressive, does need some time to develop. Nice and heavy influence of bourbon casks. Vanilla, a little grassy, barley, some herbs, green apples, floral. Really fine dramI found this bottle for under € 50 in Switzerland after buying two bottles last year in the US - so to me this is a reasonable price for a 14yo old Single Malt

  4. Ganga scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    This is very interesting. I had a bottle about a year ago and found it to be sweet (more than malty sweet). However, this one is a little different. The nose is rather unimpressive with hints of vanilla and grist. However, the palate comes alive. Ginger is a big component. Cinnamon pudding. This is dessert like. I think I'll go have another one. :)

  6. Shane_IL scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This wasn’t bad at all. Nothing amazing, but the first fill bourbon works really well with the light fruity character of the Glenfiddich distillate for a pleasant, soft daily drinker.
    • Nose
      Peaches. Woody vanilla. Barley cream. Cooked pears. Light coconut. Banana flavoring.
    • Taste
      Woodspice. Salted caramel. Apples. Oak chips. Tingling white pepper on the swallow.
    • Finish
      Short. Woodspice, pears and wood tannins and the a few creamy sweet notes.

  7. The Macallan scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    P: gentle, sweet, slightly pepery, creamy
