What's in a name? Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Sherry, citrus - orange in particular, dry wood. Slight suggestion of smoke?
Palate: Medium, sherry, raisins. Fruitcake, spices, sweetness.
Finish: Candied fruits, raisins, spices, Christmas pudding, oak takes over.
Yes it is a 'manufactured' malt in the sense of using the Solera vatting technique. But for all that it is a superbly rounded and balanced malt. It is lush, syrupy and rich and very dangerously drinkable. It is also a bargain at this price.
Which is 43% and a 1 L solild bottle:) This whisky is an incredibile combination of delicate fruityness and bourbon casks freshness. Though I am an Ardbeg drinker, this dram is always on my whikyshelf!!!
The price is good and the taste is much better.
This is one of the best 15 years malt I ever taste! Palate is quite rounded like dancing in your mouth... Nice single malt scotch for this price.
Much better than 12yo, i like it!
much more than i thought.....guddos grants
For my money, the 15 is the best out of the core Glenfiddich range - more complex and full-bodied than the 12, and better even than the 18. If you want a quality Glenfiddich, look no further.
I really liked this one particularly. Recommended
while the 12 yo is a kid's drink, the 15 is a grown up drink. Even though it's not as good as I rate it (i'm biest because i really like it :) )...It's very smooth, packs a punch, and has a great taste. Not as complex as you will expect though, but i don't mind that. Great quality whiskey a 86.5/100 from me
Very smooth for malt.
This is a beautiful whiskey - full of flavour and very well rounded. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone. It is complex and full-bodied, but I do find that it's more rounded than I'd like - I prefer whiskey with a lot of character. Certainly the sort of drink you could give to guests without any worry of complaints though.
Have a go & you will be pleased with this.well done the boys at glen f
GOOD STUFF.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.GREAT QUALITY.
AV RAMPERSAD/TRINIDAD/WEST INDIES.
Very good, pleasantly long finish, the right flavor complexity. Makes it hard to spend more on older single malts.
....I should have rated before enjoying the product.
