    I'd like to be brief here because I'm not a rum lover. In addition, I find the PLV completely wrong. Sorry, but this bottle can not cost over 100 EUR.

      Since Glenfiddich has the best people to a good nose to conjure. And I do not even like him so much. There comes only standard like toffee with vanilla. Exotic and Floral.

      There is a lack of body. Too watery for 21 years. Especially where is the rum? Do not realize why this price was created. This whisky could be quite fair for 95 EUR sell. And that is borderline. Sorry.

      Medium and warm with a spicy sweet finish. But boring.

      Sweet, flavors of vanilla, banana, toffee, oak and floral.
    • Taste
      85 85
      A soft whisky, again vanilla, toffee and oak. Spicy and slightly lemon. Rumcask is almost invisible. In the very first version, rum was clearly present.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is long and spicy, sweet with a bit of oak.

  5. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    My first 21y Gran Reserva years ago (not 87343) was better and had more intense leather and tobacco notes
    • Nose
      Molasses, marzipan, vanilla, malt, banana and sweet
    • Taste
      Light on the palate, sweets and bananas are back, flowery, tobacco that gets stronger over time
    • Finish
      Medium long, Molasses, Sourup, Oak, Sweetness gets stronger with time

  6. Segens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A good whisky which is very nice for starters from my point of view. Nevertheless for its money and especially for experts it is not spectacular enough to justify its price...
    • Nose
      very smooth nose with oak, vanilla and honey. Very pleasant!
    • Taste
      I have the 43,2% version where I already think that it is overwatered. It is a smooth dram and it is nice to drink but the full palate of taste is missing. No bitter or over-oaked influence and all in all it is fruity and nice. I would love to try the cask-strength of this dram.
    • Finish
      Simple, short but it remains positive and therefore the dram leaves a good feeling
