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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
i've always like Glenfiddich but expected a tad more from this than it delivered. try the 18yo instead

This is a well balanced product. The alcohol hit doesn't linger. The cask flavors are evident at different temperatures and dilutions. Out of habit, I always drink my scotch on the rocks. As the ice melts, the texture and flavors change revealing more of the craft flavors. Definitely one to have on the shelf when you want to spend a while sipping from a glass on a quiet evening. Even my picky friend who readily pays much more for a bottle of scotch stated he was getting a bottle of this. He had avoided it due it being a 15 yr and having a lower price, but this bottle taught him that a 15 yr at a lower price does not always compromise enjoyment.

This is so worth the money, It's one fine whisky! Anyone starting out should pick up the 12 year old Glenfiddich and highland park 12 then this.
