Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Loads of fruit. Zesty grapefruit, baked toffee apples. Dry, chocolate Flake-y wood and cinnamon.

Palate: Candied fruits and Glenfiddich freshness balances richer notes of dried apricot, more cinnamon and toffee, ginger and dry Sherry.

Finish: Peels and a touch of salted toffee.

Overall: A wonderfully rich and enjoyable Glenfiddich single malt.

User Reviews of the Glenfiddich 18 Year Old

Nothing interesting here

It's ok but I can think 5 bottles that are better for this price and 5 more bottles that are better for half this price so...

Sweet wood spicy dry, that's it. It's drinkable and even enjoyable but for the price it's not something I will pick up again.

Splendid stuff.

Rather expensive but a lovely smooth taste, well worth a go.

Annoyingly nice

I wouldn't usually buy Glenfiddich, as their ubiquitous green bottle to me is the most standard boring single malt you can name. Got a 20cl bottle of this one at duty free before a flight for clandestine swigging to save me paying Ryanair tons of dosh for tiny bottles of something nasty. Anyway, very good indeed. So good it made me re-evaluate my attitude to choosing whisky based on who made it. Turns out I also Like Johnnie Walker Black Label. I might just try Smokey Mountain corn whiskey...

Beautifully light, floral aroma. A great big hit of vanilla in there. That "burns like a bad batch of Smokey Mountain corn whiskey" guy either got a knock off bottle or simply doesn't know what he's talking about. This one's as smooth as you like.

Drinking Scotch is an acquired taste. Those that believe they'll buy a bottle and enjoy an evening of sipping whiskey, because it may be the thing to do to impress a friend, are in for a shock. Prior to consuming Glenfiddich, take a sip of iced water to cleanse the palette, then take a sip (a sip, not a gulp) and attempt to identify the flavors that explode in your mouth. I won't describe it, you must experience it for yourself. Enjoy....

Can't go wrong

This is a great buy for the money. Always enjoy it! After each sip the flavor lingers with you. Definitely one of my favorites within this price range.

burns like a bad batch of Smokey Mountain corn whiskey

I am appalled at anyone that would allow the word smooth in the same room as this crap. I paid $120 for a bottle of Glenfiddich 18 thinking that my friend and I could have an enjoyable evening of scotch sipping. Of all the scotch I've had in my life this stuff burns like fire. Anybody who describes this as smooth doesn't know what they are talking about. I am going to tell the store owner how crappy this Scotch is and ask that he stop offering it.

6th May 2015

Rather disappointed with this one for the price ($100) US

Its fine, just nothing great about it, I enjoyed the 15 year better.

28th April 2015

Smooth as can be

This is one of my all time favorites. The baked apple scent on the nose is beautiful. Well balanced, smooth, easy drinking. A good whisky to introduce a new Scotch drinker (as well as the Glenfiddich 15) as there is no harsh alcohol bite, and nothing overpowering about it. Just smooth and delicious.

1st January 2015

A classic

Definitely a must try. Not overpowering. Generally agreeable. Not too far flung in any direction. Kind of sweet.

11th December 2014

Very good

I've never been a fan of Glenfiddich, but this one took me by surprise. Very well balanced and full of subtle undertones. Complex enough to be interesting, but at the same time good all round so it doesn't get tired after a while. So far hands down best in advent calendar, and one of best I ever tried.

11th December 2014


The best Advent whisky so far. The aroma is intricate, with rum, raisin bread, vanilla and lemon. The first sip is slightly peppery and gingery, with some rosemary astringency, but moves to sherry, grapes and toffee. The finish recalls the vanilla of the nose with cinnamon, rice pudding and lemon. This rounded, smooth yet complex whisky makes a great gift for the novice or experienced drinker.

11th December 2014

Unobtrusive, Yet Subtly Engaging

Nose: Fudge, Spiced red apple, Hints of candied orange, some white grapes and subtle notes of oak.

Palate: Toasted Oak, red apple, some raisins and nutmeg.

Finish: A fairly long and drying finish, Notes of grape, gingerbread, citrus oil, and some distant smoke fading to a close.

11th December 2014


This is really quite a special whisky, the marriage of both sherry and bourbon has given a huge level of interest and complexity to the malt. Really fruity up front full of apple crumble and caramel notes with christmas spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon coming through. It finishes with an oaty, amaretto infused finish.

11th December 2014

Remarkable Whisky

Nice and Smooth, taste stay longer...

19th October 2014


fabulous whiskey. . 15 yr old still does it for me on price and flavour, each to there own.

Seriously this whisky has immediately kicked me off my high horse and told me not to poo poo Glefiddich whiskies just because they make a zillion bottles a year. (Lacks the authentic artisan touch you see. WTF do I know? ) Trouble is it's bloody magic! I now have to explore the rest of the range.....

24th September 2014


Good whisky but not as good as the 15 years old

15th September 2014

true fan

Have been drinking this for more than 2 years.. Bloody brilliant it is...
Just got thier select cask.. Would let you know how that is😉

Best whisky by far " Smooth" most superior

28th July 2014

Great discovery

I didn't know this drink but I had to google it after some sips from a bottle given to me by a friend. Very mild and friendly taste, yet gives all you want from fine whiskey. I wish I had googled it before gulping all cos I may not afford another bottle now. I have also checked for its retail outlet, but no way. Yet another great and high experience!

Seems pretty good to me

Referring to 'ancient mistake': isn't the 'Ancient Reserve' the same thing as the current 18yo, - Glenfiddich just don't put 'Ancient Reserve' on the label anymore? Certainly all sites advertising the Ancient Reserve just illustrate a 'standard' 18yo bottle.

I was given a small bottle of 18yo last month, and thought it great, - though I'm more of an Islay fan. But, oddly, Ralfy mentioned in one of his reviews that he won't be reviewing the 18yo, - as it doesn't reach 80/100. Very odd. The 18yo seemed much better than the 15yo to me.

17th July 2014

Truly one of my favorites........

I won't get into all that pretentious horseshit about "notes" of this and "notes" of that and "pairs" well with a pair of whore's drawers!!!.....its a great phucking whisky if you can afford it....and I can!!!!!....and more than stimulates the creative senses and inflames the genitals and makes you want to rob banks and go for drives in the countryside with law enforcement and gunfire!!!!........seriously......its a great whisky and well worth the 80.00 bucks (Can)

Sign me......

One of my Favorite's

I probably have 50 bottles of Whiskey. This is one of my all time favorite and go to bottles. The warm spiced apples are just yummy.

7th March 2014

Lasts so long

A rather sweet, very fruity whisky, very delicate, mellow and soft. A finish with toffee is very pronounced. I initially wanted to save this one for a long time, so I poured a very small amount in the glass. The taste lasted in my mouth for the next 2 hours, and it was simply beautiful. Be wary of the glass you drink it with, as it does make a difference.

10th January 2014

Simply beautiful

Quite simply a taste of the "Gods" I smile every time I take a sip

9th January 2014

An excellent whisky

I refer to the "A truly awful whisky" reviewer. A ridiculous review that is of no use to anyone. Why is it an awful whisky

23rd December 2013

Prefer the 15yo

This, basically. This is a good whisky, but for me the 15yo has more depth and complexity.

21st December 2013


apples apples apples. Hint of sherry, Apples, sweet. great bottle.

2nd December 2013

Enjoyable... Smooth and and flavorful.

The smoothness of what you look for when you invest in an 18year old. Very affordable and underrated bottle.

16th November 2013

not one of the best , it is THE BEST.

absolutely wonderful 18 yr old single malt, I bought two bottles 3 yrs ago, just opened the second, its stunning. delicate, smooth mellow and that famous warmth as you swallow it down slowly, worth every penny and more.

20th October 2013


This is a gem. Beautifully balanced, aromatic. A classic Speysider.

11th October 2013

How can anyone say it is awful?!!

I see one bad review about the Whisky and I don't understand how anyone could say that about it. I understand if you don't like the place you bought it from, but this is one of the best Whiskies (for that price) that one can get. Been drinking this for years and it is fantastic. Never ordered from this site, so I can't comment on the service.

23rd September 2013


I love this whisky for its smoothness and caramel/apple/cinnamon flavours. the best way I can describe it is to imagine Angelina giving you a lingering French kiss while half way through eating and licking on a toffee apple. once I get started on a bottle of this its hard for me to put it down in errrr what id imagine would be a similar way to mrs Pitt :)

29th May 2013


Another great whisky from the underrated Glenfiddich distillery. One of the smoothest and bueatifully honey sweetened whiskies out there. However if your used to your whiskies bottled at 46% and NCF you may find it somewhat lacking in ommph.

13th May 2013

Wonderful whisky

This is a fantastic whisky. Not for everyday drinking, but for the cozy nights in front of the fire. Perfect.

The people that are complaining and downvoting the whisky becouse of a shipping error should stay with Jack D.

12th May 2013

Great Buy!

I took me almost a whole year to finish this 1 liter bottle of Glenfiddich and while I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to Whisky in general, I know that I prefer Speyside whisky compared to those that originate from Islay, and I was very pleased with this bottle and the smoothness it contains. It's like a semi-sweet well rounded richness coats your tongue and the warmness of it all...

A truly awful whisky.

This has got to be one of the worst whiskys I have ever tasted. It is very harsh on the mouth.

31st December 2012


They sent me the WRONG whisky. They sent me the regular 18 year old not the Ancient Reserve. So my review is: Poor. This is the second time I have posted this. So they obviously don't like negative reviews. I think they sent me the wrong whisky on purpose.

28th December 2012

Ancient Mistake

I ordered and payed for a bottle of Glenfiddich 18 Year Old Ancient Reserve. But received a bottle of 18 Year Old Glenfiddich. SO, MY REVIEW: EXTREMELY POOR.

27th December 2012

Great whisky.

I have always been a fan of Glenfiddich, I have tried from the 12 to the 21 year old and a lot of the limited edition ones too. My favourite is the 1991 Don Ramsey bottle then this one, i think this is better than the 21 year old. I am not a fan of peaty or smokey whisky but this one has a tiny hint of smoke that works well with the other flavors. To top it off i got 6 bottles of this in Morrisons for 29.99 each ! Bargain !!!!!

6th September 2012

A step back from the 15 y.o. version

Sweet water with some wood. You can get more even for lower price.

9th August 2012

A good whisky

A good whisky, but not as good as the Glenfiddich 15 in my opinion.

22nd June 2012


This lad is as delicate as an old lady but has enough kick to convert a try. My favorite whisky to date. Jackie Jr

3rd March 2012

A brilliant result

Mellow, nutty and smooth, rich and delicate with no alcohol burn and a fantastic whisky overall. Glenfiddich are the biggest, and this whisky shows that they are also *one of* the best.

Masterpiece from the Valley of the Deer!

Don't let the fact that Glenfiddich are the biggest sellers of Single Malt whisky put you off. They sell more because they produce high class malts and this is a beauty! Many malts finished in sherry casks are overwhelmed by the rich sherry flavours ( sometimes purposely to disguise a poor malt). But in this case the oloroso adds to the already rich mix of orange, ginger and toffee. The end result is one of the very best 18 yo on the market at a truly bargain price.
