  1. Goethe scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Quite an extravagant Glenfiddich, a lot of fruits but also some tobacco and tasty chocolate. Maybe a bit to weak (well, its just 40% ABV).Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits (banana, pineapple), yellow fruits (lemon and oranges), light smoke, caramel, some herbs, some chocolate.
    • Taste
      Again: Tropical fruits (banana, pineapple), oranges, light smoke, caramel, some chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium. Oak, chocolate, tobacco, some fruits.

  2. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a great whisky, the leather and tobacco notes inspire me
    • Nose
      Leather, tobacco, light spiciness, malt, liquorice, eraser and pineapple are added later
    • Taste
      soft on the palate, pepper, again leather, tropical fruit (mango?), oak
    • Finish
      medium to long, malt, good tobacco !, sweetness that is getting stronger, oak comes to the end

  3. GJR scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    It is a pity of the low ABV, it has some potential, but is now too much watered down and everything is just a bit too much in the background.
    • Nose
      Sweetish, spicy some toffee and wood. Little delicate, weak nose.
    • Taste
      Clear rum influence, sweetness dominates with brown sugar, caramel, creme brulee, which show. Somewhat more present tones, but remains a little light.
    • Finish
      Pretty short and very drying. Somewhat smokiness in the aftertaste. Light fruit tones.
