    • 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.

    Very easy malt, a little too easy and forgettable perhaps. Nothing wrong really, but not much to like either.

    A little rubbery in after taste.

    Matured in an array of casks [virgin, refill US, Euro,…] before being married in a solera vat, this offering is currently £60 or less [at time of writing], for a litre.

    C: Appropriately for Glenfiddich, an easy drinker. In the main, we’ve an affordable contemporary/STR-vibe well-engineered whisky that shares a stylistic similarity to the Tamnavulin, though examples of this [becoming rapidly tedious] style from distilleries globally are numerous. At 15yo, it comes across far younger.

  8. benlwd scored this whisky 82 points Newbie

    Very tasty with apple pie

  9. 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

  10. Koning scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    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.
