Interesting fact… Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve whiskey, instead of 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.
My wife bought me this Glenfiddich 15 for Christmas and I couldn't leave it alone. A superb scotch whisky! Must admit as an Ulsterman my favourite regular tipple is Jameson and I could never understand what all the fuss was about Scottish Highland whiskies. My rare exception was to a bottle of good old Dimple. However this Glenfiddich 15 definitely has made me review my opinions. Beautiful full flavour, strong but doesn't catch the back of your throat and a warm very pleasant aftertaste. Perfect! Well done to the master distiller!

After deciding to take the plunge into the world of single malts, I started with a 375mL bottle of Glenlivet 12. While it was good, it was taking the palate some getting to used to and wasn't quite I'd take to whisky fully. While at a local pub they had a good selection of Scotch at reasonable prices. Order a Glenfiddich 15 and to my surprise it took and was able to sip and savor neat and fully enjoy it without the feeling of "forcing it". Picked up a bottle and couldn't be happier. Well worth the cost over something still considered a decent whisky in the Glenlivet 12.

Not a huge fan of the 12yo but this stuff is great. Nicely sherried, woody, well balanced. Much better than both the 12yo and the 18yo. Recommended.

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.

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.

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

Very good, pleasantly long finish, the right flavor complexity. Makes it hard to spend more on older single malts.

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 smooth for malt.

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

I really liked this one particularly. Recommended

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.

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.

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!!!

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.
