  1. pianoman scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Light, pleasantly fruity. Ripe bananas, pears, mild honey. Vanilla and a hint of peach. Rose petals, fresh sawdust.
    • Taste
      Mild and light. Apricots, nectarines, honey, almonds. A little vanilla. White chocolate and a slightly nutty bitterness. At the end a bit watery.

  4. IIIZIII scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Overripe, lightly baked apple. SLightly sharp and alcoholic from the first contach. With time it is more subtle, banana, baked fruits again and nutty
    • Taste
      Banana, and smooth oakiness
    • Finish
      Gentle but shortish

  5. Koning scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A gentle and well balanced dram, with the signature Glenfiddich pears. Would benefit from a higher strength though!
    • Nose
      81 81
      Rather shy: malty sweetness, stewed pears, vanille, milk chocolate and perhaps raisins
    • Taste
      85 85
      More expressive and very balanced: pears, yellow raisins, apricot, white wine, milk chocolate, a bit spicy (ginger?) and a light saltiness that I also find in the 15 Distillery Edition.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Citrus and red apples, a bit nutty and dry (tannins?). Same spices, including the saltiness.

  6. Fudschafudscha scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    He has a false note, a bland spice that stands out from the basically nice to drink whisky in the beginning.

    In sum, no revelation, rather the opposite. Something was saved, was probably otherwise landed in the glare industry.

    You do not have to drink

    - blind tasting -

    All in all a very tasty whisky.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Mild, alcohol is barely noticeable. Sweet sherry, pastries, vanilla, light spice. Over time, I smell ripe yellow fruits, later maybe oranges. No complexity miracle, but very appealing.
    • Taste
      86 86
      At first, the whisky seems a bit watery, then the mouthfeel creamy, the alcohol flashes short, intense and sharp, then it is sweet and spicy, I have orange peel, some coffee powder, toffee and roasted hazelnut. Overall, but I lack a little volume.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long, creamy, sweet and slightly spicy. Somehow a bit unspectacular.

  9. Andytka3 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N- Milk and grassy, fresh caramel with soft dried fruit sherry notes but not developed much and remains low throughout. (85/19)

    F- Quite a different spectrum on palate, uplifting with marzipan layered with delicious confectionery, bursting honey, sweet berries, dried fruits and plum. Velvet candy smokes, freshly baked cheddar wafer, reasonably rich and complex. (89/22)

    F- Medium-long, pleasant dryness, mildly spicy with warming feel, quite full on body for rich and lasting finish. (88/22)

    B/B- 87/21

    Cr- 2, Fr- 2, Fl- 0, Pt- 0, Ft- 2, Sp-0, Wd-2, Wn-1, Sc-1
