Nose: Fresh flowers and blossom. Summery and crisp with a peppery edge. Hints of custard and almond.
Palate: Malt, very creamy with more of those blossom notes. Now it's all rather spicy with hints of dark, rich fruit, black pepper and cinnamon. Good sherry character too.
Finish: Good sweetness, long and lush.
The best whisky I have yet tasted. Fantastic!

As much as I love the Solera, and I really do, I find it to be underpowered. 40% seems like an arbitration made with economic consideration. The Distillery ed overshoots the ideal, bottled at 51% (I would prefer it between 43-46%), but its a step in the right direction. If you like the Solera reserve but want more of a kick to it, don't miss out on the Distillery ed.

Not as good as the 15 Solera Vat
I thought I'd go a little extra because I really liked the Glenfiddich 15, but this was much harsher. I'm not an experienced whisky taster and I do need to spend more time with this bottle, but my initial impression was disappointing. To put it short, it started of sweet, but the end was hard to fathom, being peppery, burning, but still holding the sweet vanilla taste associated with Glenfiddich. I normally like stronger non chill filtered Malt's, such as Laphroaig's Quarter Cask, but I didn't enjoy this as much. Even though it was interesting, I wish I had bought something else with my money, as there is much nicer out there for the cost. However I'm sure a lot of people will appreciate it's unique taste.

my lord its sweeter than cola
I found that the bottle I bought had a foamy head akin to lager and tasted a bit nasty. Notes of burnt toast and bat guano , with a subtle but not overpowering taste of day old vomitus. Another splendid offering from Glenfiddich.

My very first bottle was Caol Ila. My second was Talisker, my third was lagavulin, and it continued along that peaty path. Then i bought this and realized that scotch didnt have to be an excercise in your palate, as much as i love a good Islay malt, sometimes you dont want to have to think on your whisky, and here you can just savor the smooth fruity sweet and pleasant dram that will NOT let you know that its such a high alcohol content. It has everything you could ask for except a slightly short finish, but it may be because it keeps you drooling too hard.

Splendid malt! An explosion of flavour - but still manages to retain a complex evolution of flavours and development of notes. The nose is intoxicating with it's rich fruit and strength promising a full bodied powerful taste; the high strength is perfect, what could be overwhelming with so many notes and hints is grounded in rich christmas cake and dark baked figs, to which pepper, slight vanilla and creamy toffee underlie. The finish expands upon the figs with pleasant sweetness and a very slight sour taste which is prevalent in the 12 year old expression. This is far and away one of the best malts I have tried and Glenfiddich have outdone themselves, don't be put off by the brand, Glenfiddich are amongst the best distiller's. I shall be picking up another bottle if I can - close to perfection.

This is a good Scotch, but I didn't like it as much as the 15 Solera I had at a bar a few weeks ago. It has a nice aroma but is a little hot to the taste, and the flavor I thought nothing special. I'll give it the same rating I give most decent Speyside whisky. Karl
