Whisky Reviews for Glenfiddich 1979

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.31 points

  1. ffmdino scored this whisky 66 points Expert Senior

    good the start in the nose but then disappointing in taste and finish
    • Nose
      Vanilla, slightly tobacco, oak, biscuits and caramel
    • Taste
      lay down gloriously over the pits, fruits, later spices, then an old rag
    • Finish
      medium long with oak and then coal

  2. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Aroma: Robust oak note with fine vanilla, dried spices and mature tobacco leaves. Taste: Deep, full-bodied and warm with the sweetness of barley sugar. Initially, gentle fruit flavors and notes of dried oak, ginger and fresh nutmeg in the foreground with an ideal balance of oak and fruity sweetness.
    Finish: Long lasting with a sweetness of oak tannins. Too bad that this whisky has been added with dye.
