Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reviews

Nice sipping whiskey

Beautiful notes of Sherry, apple, and spices. Tastes like the fall season. A touch too light for my taste but overall very nice

18th November 2020

Quality Sherried Expression

Love this, picked it up for £40.

Full of Sherry, winter fruits, berries & winter spices (cinnamon, nutmeg etc) has a thick, luxurious mouth-feel.

Anyone into Speyside whisky will adore this.

14th November 2020

can't go wrong with this

This is not top-of-the-range spectacular, but it has plenty of interesting notes of spice and sweet, and a hint of smoke from the age, and it retails for a pleasantly non-spectacular can't go wrong with it...more so because it's produced in quantity by the Glenfiddich boys, despite the supposed individual cask selection, so there's consistency, which a lot fail on

14th October 2020

hard to fault

a quality sherried dram this and out of a vat too. These solera vats are very important to keep the product the same, and the same is great. A whisp of smoke in the finish along with oak and sherried spices. A tang of orange peel too.
hard to fault at its price, which for a 15 yr old is damn good.

30th September 2020

Lovely Drop

Its a lovely drop. Soothing Refined and well priced. One of my go to gentler malts.

21st August 2020

Excellent for the price

Smooth, easy drinking and refined complex flavours. You’ll never regret deciding to choose this whisky over something else in your collection.

24th July 2020


Profumo intenso, allo stesso tempo delicato ma deciso, un ottimo dram un 15enne superlativo.

30th June 2020


Each cask is hand-selected by our Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, and chosen for its unique taste profile. Individual casks are then married in our Solera Vat, a unique process where the flavours from each cask interact with each other to create a uniquely smooth and refined single malt.
A beautifully soft, sweet single malt, our Select expression combines the refined taste of oak with the signature orchard fruit of the Glenfiddich collection. <a href="">viski</a>

27th June 2020

The best value whiskey. Full stop.

If you like Speyside whiskies, I'll keep this short. Buy this. It's by far and away the best bang-for-buck whiskey on the market and considering you can normally find it for a little over £30 if you shop around, it's stunningly good value.

18th June 2020

Egg Whites

Wow, this blew away my expectations.
THICK. It is like sippin egg white, in a good/fantastic way.
Very nice flavor. Keeps you craving.

27th May 2020

Smooth lovely easy unchallenging

One of the most comforting whiskys out there. My go to after funerals 😉

21st May 2020

not very complex but very easy drinking and enjoyable.

Picked up a bottle for £34, great value for money at that price. Easy drinking scotch. I like it!
Nose: pineapple, citrus (lime?) butterscotch, vanilla, green wood..Indulgent.
Taste: sweet, vanilla, fruits, dried fruit, spices (cloves? cinnamon?)
doesn't last very long in the mouth, sweet aftertaste. A bit thin.

6th May 2020


Smooth and sweet. Non whiskey drinkers have been converted after trying this!

22nd March 2020

Malt Magic

Hot and smoky and a snip at £33 at Sainsburys today!

15th February 2020

Excellent , quality scotch whisky

I have been drinking whisky since my late teens and am now 56. Glenfiddich was always at home when I was growing up and I have always had a few bottles in my cabinet. For the past few years I have been trying lots of different brands, including some very expensive so called top brands. This solera 15 is my staple go to whisky and the one I seem to choose over the 18 other brands I have.It has a wonderful complex aroma and taste with a good long finish that I never grow tired of. Over the years I have come to realise that Glenfiddich ,despite its size is and excellent and consistently high quality distillery, something that lots of others can’t aspire to. Excellent whisky from an excellent family owned distillery.

14th January 2020

A delight of a Malt

An excellent Whisky. Lovely notes of citrus and spice and tastes of fruitcake and Christmas. Very smooth, no harshness at all. Faint Oak taste at the end. I love this Malt, much prefer it over the 18 year old. Great price

9th January 2020

Ruddy good drop sire, reminds me of getting up to no good, in a good way.


25th December 2019

Reminds me of christmas!

Lovely whisky, smells so sweet definately made me think of vanilla and fruity christmas cake! Fantastic buy at £30 too 👍🏻

13th December 2019


If you like Christmas cake you'll like this! I may have even added a bit to the cake on my plate, simply delicious. For me this is Christmas afternoon next to the log fire after an excellent lunch.

19th November 2019

Why do I only have a 50cl sample?!

Sweet, spicy, warming...this is one of my favourites. I am sad I only got a sampler bottle! On the hunt for a (well-priced) full one!

5th November 2019


Excellente Malt!!!
One of my favourite!!!!

15th August 2019

Perfect easy drink. One is never enough.

Stunning. One of my favourites. A complex start of fruits so berries, raisins vanilla and warming honey. Also noted oak, sherry, sweets.
The taste is dry, salty, spicy and rich.
A long smooth finish,
One or two drops for a creamy fudge flavouring.

2nd July 2019

Not bad. Well worthy of a spot on ones cask. Good bit better than the 12, but still a great distance behind the masterpiece that is the 18 years old. All in all a worthwhile buy.

I don’t normally pick up oak notes on the nose but I’m adamant I can with this one. Also sweet on the nose once aired for a moment or two.

Pretty oily on the palate with an oak kick, plums and a hint of coffee in the back.

21st June 2019

Utter disappointment!

Without a doubt the worst whisky I've ever bought, his younger 12 yrs old brother is way better than this one. Such a disappointment! Even old cheap J&B has better rounded flavour! Rough, unpleasant on the palette. Do not recommend.

31st May 2019

The whisky that broke my tasting barrier

Been a reader of the reviews on this site for a few years and using them as a guide prior to buying and wishing that I could get some of the flavours other people write about. Thus, I have been trying to crack the art of tasting myself with limited success... then..... on another visit to a bottle of this I got a pretty overwhelming hit of rich christmas cake/pudding that was shortly followed by a lingering sweetness. On a further glass those tastes came through faster and I felt I got hints of vanilla once a slight bitterness faded.
Overall, for the offer price of £30 I consider it great value for money.

15th April 2019


I love Malts... Scottish, Irish, Japanese...This is a good Malt. I wouldn't pay more than $50 a bottle for it but if it can be bought on sale then it's well worth it. All Malts are good, some are just better than others. I'd rate it 3 and a half out of five but would give it a four if bought on sale. If you like Sherry characteristics in your'll like this one.

12th April 2019

Just didn’t do it for me

I found this to be very plain. It’s decent but that’s it, some sherry influence but not as much as most sherried drams. It is smooth but for the price there are much better options. This just feels cheap and too watered down. Very average nothing special sticks out. Maybe if not chill filtered and at a slightly higher abv I think it would be much better than it is.

4th April 2019

Easy and calm whiskey, pretty amazing

Nutmeg, ginger and spice at first. Lots of cinnamon and cake develop mixing with scent of citrus as well. Very complex, so many aromas develop. Splash of water and it develops further, cream becoming evident with citrus sweet compotes. Oh, don't leave out the wood. Palate is sweet, cake with dried fruits, vanilla pod you'd hold on the tongue, again wood and some leaves. Bitterness on the aftertaste, dried figs.

1st April 2019

Nice whisky, get it while on offer

A nice smooth 15 year old. Definitely the citrus, Sherry and smoke in the nose but only got the sherry and fruitcake in the palate and a hint of raisins in the finish. A decent whisky but wouldn’t want to spend more than £35 for it.

21st March 2019

Great value for money

An superb whisky at this price. Highly recommended.

1st February 2019

Xlent whisky. Note the above.

Any difference between Solera and Barrel Select, both are 15 years old.
With ice and/ or water or both gets a very bit turbid .

24th January 2019

Worth the taste

Great initial aroma.... This is overtaken by the "heat" of the creation. Enjoyable, but unlike a really peaty malt (eg: Laphroaig), the delicious aromas do not seem to be sustained. Still, a worthwhile snifter. As you will realise, I'm a convinced islander when it comes to whisky.

9th January 2019


The perfect Speyside for my liking. Lots of flavor, good finish, and beautiful aroma.

27th December 2018

Fantastic i was given a gift,want more fantastic gifts like this well done Glenfiddich regards Gray

Great taste,mellow after taste, a 15 year whiskey,wow what would the 21 year taste like, I feel an after glow makes ones cheeks tingle well done Glenfiddich best regards Gray

31st October 2018

15yr o'll d whisky

I purchased this whiskey for £30 at Sainsbury it's like drinking pop what a fantastic whisky.

14th October 2018

Fairly mediocre.

Fairly mediocre. Rough & unrefined character, hidden behind a sherry finish. Try before you buy a bottle to avoid dissapointment!

19th September 2018

Easy and delicious

Apple and pear on the nose, smooth and fruity on the palate with an easy finish. This single malt is one to have in your inventory for sure

16th September 2018


Fantastic whisky, not only for the value, but overall. Rich nose and a smooth sherry palate, which i simply love. Many times, more complexity does not mean better, and this is just the case.

21st August 2018

Solid choice for the price

I'm more a fan of Campbeltown for the complexity in their whiskys, but this is smooth and pleasant without that bit of harshness I've found in Springbank 10 and 15. I'll take this over MacAllan 12 as well because it has a nice bit of sherry from the sherry cask but its not overwhelming. Solid choice for $70, the bad reviews below are probably bourbon drinkers.

14th August 2018

An excellent choice

Not cheap, but affordable. Smooth and mellow. One of the best single malts I've had in a long time.

13th August 2018

Classic example of a single malt

This a great drink. If you are new to single malts buy this and an Ardbeg 10 to choose your direction. The other thousands of whiskies takes a lifetime.

25th July 2018


Wouldn't recommend it. Has quite a strong alcoholic taste to it. Very little else. Reminds me of my broke student years , getting drunk on cheap whisky.

7th May 2018


Unrefined, tastes & feels like a young whisky with no distinct character.
Generally disappointing.

6th April 2018

Smooth and distinct

Possibly my favourite speyside, nicer than the 18 and distinctly richer than the 12. Very smooth.
Always laugh at Americans reviewing Whisky - see review "nothing burger, overpriced" below. Compared to what you pay for the garbage produced by their country their criticisms are laughable.

5th March 2018

A must buy for any collection.

Love it. Of the Glenfiddich offerings the Solera Reserve is by far my favourite.

7th January 2018

Experiment a Little and you'll be rewarded.

Very friendly, smooth and approachable for beginners. You can't go wrong with this, unless you're trying for something complex. It's not bland, it just isn't super interesting. If complex and interesting is what you're looking for, try a few drops of water in it and see it open up. It'll be a little sweeter and a lot more interesting.

12th December 2017

Nothing burger, overpriced

Innocuous, no kick, no character--nothing, literally, to write home, or a friend, relative or even a whiskey review website about. Fairly smooth, yet utterly unmemorable.
Bought for $75, worth maybe $25. HUGE ripoff.

2nd November 2017

Missed opportunity.

The nose constantly changes as it sits in the glass over 15-30 minutes; which is really interesting. On the palate, loads of dried fruit (orange) and toffee. It's delicious but the mouthfeel is weak; a non-chill filtered version would be very special indeed.

12th August 2017

An excellent, must-have for beginners and experts alike

Wonderful. "Smooth" and "rich" are words that will often appear in whisky reviews. But for this offering from Glenfiddich, I can't think of any more apt words to describe it. The sweetness is the full and rich kind, with those sherry/bourbon caskings offering up some fruitcake / Christmas cake flavours, but stopping short of cloying or sickly. The finish is also reasonable and remarkably smooth.

Although this could easily appeal to whisky fanatics, I would also heartily recommend this to beginners or as one to offer those who wouldn't normally make scotch their first choice. Normally, that would be damning with faint praise, but it's universal appeal simply stands as a testament to how well made this is. Simply excellent.

I would struggle to think of a better all-rounder to have around. So much so, I went and bought a second standby bottle.

18th June 2017

Probably the best beginner-whisky in the world

This is the whisky i recommend for everyone who is new to scotch. And i mean that in a very positive way. It is extremely smooth, very delicious and quite easy to drink. A classic speyside.

Though I am not new to scotch, I like it a lot. It is a non-challenging whisky for the times you just want to relax.

18th June 2017

Un cult dei whisky

Che dire!!! Veramente un cult questo Glenfiddich 15 anni solera, al palato è morbito con note di agrumi, giusta profondità, e lascia lo spazio all'immaginazione dei più conditi sapori, intenso, e morbido, ottimo.

15th June 2017

I love it. That's all I drink now. Worth the price.

Smooth with a subtle sherry taste.

6th June 2017

Always better than the last bottle

This is a whisky that I really should buy more it's probably the best one out there at this price. Only problem with it is that it's 40% other than that this is awesome. So much sweet sherry and orange peel with raisins and spices. Super smooth definitely don't add any water. And since the whisky in their solera keeps getting older this whisky gets better every time I buy it. No wonder Glenfiddich is so successful amazing whisky at a reasonable price. Cheers! The Sugarbear

19th May 2017


Whisky eccezionale, morbido al palato, retrogusto fruttato, un grande whisky....

16th May 2017

Don't forget about Glenfiddich

It's all to easy to forget about how good Glenfiddich is, with all the other names trying to entice us - but this is, quite simply, a great whisky. To be honest, it's been awhile and I'd forgotten what a beautifully smooth, fruity dram this is. The nose is sublime, the taste just what you want from an urbane Speyside and the finish leaves a perfect warmth. As another contributor said, at a time when so many whiskies are NAS and rather poor in quality, give yourself a treat and go for this one. The only thing to make it better would be non-chillfiltration and 46% - but then it wouldn't be this whisky!

25th April 2017

Worthy to add to your collection

First Glenfifdich I have tried and no complaints .I've yet to find a whisky that didnt like me!

9th April 2017

Best whisky for this price: hands down.

At a time when whiskies prices are going up while the quality seems to be going down, it's
good to see Glenfiddich are bucking the trend. The 15 year old solera vat has always been good, but the later versions are even better. Thick rich juicy and utterly delicious. The finish is so moreish too. This reminds of Highland Park 12 back when it was good whisky....before the dark times, before the Empire... before all the whisky wouldn't tell us its age and doubled in price plenty of this. This is simply the best whisky on the market at this price. I intend to get half a dozen because value like this won't last in today's whisky market. Wait till the Chinese find out about this stuff and ditch their overpriced generic Johnny Walker blends...Oh boy...

8th March 2017

Delicious and Smooth

What a great Scotch...sweet, deep, rich, and smooth. I taste a deep flavor of dried fruits and a hint of honey. Again, smooth. You can't go wrong with Glenfiddich, the 12 yr is solid too. But the Solera gives you more 'depth' in flavor. When it's on 'sale' I always grab a's worth it!

4th March 2017

good stuff, good price.

I denifintely find mild smoke in it... whiskyexchange rates it at 0 smoke weird.

18th February 2017

Sweet and very smooth

Sweet, very smooth and probably the nicest whisky I've tasted. For me, it's perfect.

12th February 2017

Top of the tree Whisky.

Great dram. One of the best single malts money can buy. An absolute must for single malt drinkers.

16th January 2017

Hard to fault

On first pour a sweet, smooth, woody, Christmas cake of a whisky with quite a dry finish. With very little oxygenation the wood and dryness dissipate and the whisky sweetens and mellows. A very nice characterful whisky and pretty good value for money.

12th January 2017

15 years of perfection.

Not a cheap whisky at around £35.00 a 70cl bottle, but still superb. Buy it, taste it, love it. It's Glenfiddich, always going to be a truly superb whisky.


27th December 2016


Very smooth. Recommended if you drink with your girl. Rich aroma and taste. My rating - 95/100.

24th December 2016

2016 Advent Calendar Notes

A hint of Belgian waffle and citrus in the nose, the palate is mildly smoky, round, and tasting of dried fruit, with a strong vanilla to caramel sweetness in the finish with a hint of oakiness. Tried this during a 2016 romp around the Highlands and was pleased to see it in the Advent Calendar.

8th December 2016

Good for winter

I normally go for peaty but thought I'd try this one for s change. Very rich, smooth, with an oak & raisin aftertaste. It will definitely serve well over Christmas - I just wish I had a roaring log fire to sit in front of while drinking it.

7th December 2016

Dessert dram to be sure

The Solera Vat is what makes this special, I have had several of these and all vary in nose and palate due to the S/V ever changing. Top aromatic notes are sweet honey, dried dark fruits and toffee fudge in the back. With a tiny dribble of distilled water, it explodes into Christmas cake. I can nose this dram for hours if I had the time and the notes keep changing. Very sherried in the palate. By itself, it is a tad bit dry in the finish, but it pairs magically with dessert: crème brulee, cheesecake or spongecake w/ fruit drizzle. It is a staple of my whisky cabinet and always will be.

25th July 2016

Depends what you're after

Personally, I am a lover of all things smokey, briney, and oceanic-- I love scotchey scotch (if that makes any sense). The Glenfiddich 15 is none of these things, but it is quite good in its own right. I just cracked and am enjoying my first pour as I write this. This whisky has a velvety, rich mouth and a very spicy, almost Christmassy nose. It is a fairly American tasting whiskey in many ways, but decadent and impressively flavorful. Not what I was hoping for, but not a disappointment either. Definitely worth the money to try at least once.

23rd July 2016


Hard to beat at this price, Nice and smooth

18th July 2016

A Good Bargain

This one is very similar to Balvenie 16 yo, but better price and lower age.

25th June 2016


Not a Scotch for mixers.
A big soft entry that will be hugely welcomed by those stepping up from the 12 year old.
A soft sherryness spicy and complex, round, full with lovely fade away - slightly bitter with peppery vanilla.
Might be longer on the middle but the finish makes up for this.
Thins too much with water goes a bit sweet then bitter.
Worth revisiting. I keep a bottle.

28th May 2016

Fave Glenfiddich Expression £30-£40

Light Honeyed palate, delicate with a hint of fresh mint leaves. Develops in mouth with wood & chocolate. Slow spiced & serried finish. Adding water brings out fresh fruit notes of a apple & peach bit overall prefer drinking it neat.

4th May 2016

Great whisky

Very smooth.. Recommended for everyone

2nd April 2016

Dr. J.

This is an excellent whisky at a nice price point. It is smooth and delicious. I don't quite comprehend an Oregon pine tun, but it works quite well.

14th March 2016

Love it

One of the best whiskies I've ever tried. Love it!

2nd March 2016

Holiday sugar and spice!

The terminology on the Masters of Malt site says, "Christmas pudding..." I would have to completely agree. The flavors in this dram remind me of spicy sweet potato pie, pumpkin spices minus the pumpkin. This amazing 15 yr old is so affordable and absolutely unique with such a great holiday evening by the fire profile. Buy it, get your best friends and family over and enjoy a warm evening together.

31st January 2016


Probably the best single malt produced. Very smooth! My Go-To Scotch

31st December 2015

A fair dram

Smooth and easy to drink. No trace of spice. Quite alright. Good place to start if you are curious about single malt scotch . You might want to evolve to something else after this one.

23rd October 2015



13th October 2015

GF 15

By far the best bang for the buck among a type of whiskey that by nature can put a dent in the wallet. Scotch whiskey in general is something that most of us choose to pay the extra expense as it really is worth it and so enjoyable. I have had the privilege of sipping the really high dollar stuff and it is better but not 300 bucks better....not even close. GF 15 is my personal selection. It really comes down to what you enjoy in a single malt so disregard what others say and keep trying different types and go with what you enjoy in a will find you tastes and preference evolve and change as you yourself age

3rd October 2015


One of my favourites.

27th September 2015

Could drink this all day

Easy drinking malt. Slight suggestion of smoke on the nose. I can definitely taste the sweet sherry. For an easy drinking, quality malt, this is the one.

27th September 2015


My first venture into a higher quality of scotch. I am loyal to a fault and now I am not only a Solara reserve fan but truly a glenfiddich man, period.

13th September 2015

My Favourite Fiddie

I like this best of the regular Glenfiddichs and where I live, it is $15 cheaper than Balvenie. This is my any day whisky.

5th June 2015

Good 15 year

I enjoyed this one better that the 12 and 18 year. Honey and vanilla!

28th April 2015

Bland whisky

Beginners dram...

25th April 2015

Glenfiddich 15

liquid gold

16th April 2015

Nice, but for less the balvenie doublewood is better

If you like sherry bourbon taste in your sm, then the balvenie doublewood is obvious the better choice.

31st March 2015

weak and boring

Nose is a little sweet and alcohol. Eventhough its only 40% it smells alcoholic. Other than that...very little smell.
Taste is weakly sweet...not really much taste at all. Opens with kind of a aspartame sweetnes which fade away quickly. The most one dimmensional scotch ive had in a while. Reminds me of Glenfiddich 12 which was the second scotch I tasted. Never found any taste in that either. Pouring this tastless drink out and getting a bottle of Lagavulin on the table instead.

8th March 2015

good for 2

i agree with the tasting notes by the chaps at master malt up to the finish, which i find to be apple dominant, and oaky.
complex and long, an enjoyable beverage.

3rd February 2015

excellent choise but balvenie is far more better

Sherry, cinamon,honey, almonds, all combined wisely for this nice serious malt.full body.long finish.

2nd February 2015

Mr nigel ward

I bought this bottle as a treat for myself. On opening the bottle found a very pleasant aroma and was indeed very soft onthe palate . But after a few drams found the after a bit to much like Jack Daniels it could be me , but I would recommend this vintage to anyone. .

1st January 2015

Perfect everyday whisky

Smooth, spicy and sweet - this is a great whisky that is hard to find fault with. Especially considering the price. As good as the 18? No, but for the price difference it's pretty darn equal. Fill a Glencairn Glass to the widest point, add a sliver of ice, and let it melt and cool the whisky a touch. The splash of water really opens this one up.

Pick up a bottle and enjoy it.

1st January 2015

Dr Colonel (Retired)

In my 60 years of sampling and enjoying a vast offering of whisk(e)ys, I have settled on the Glenfiddich 15. It embodies a lot of sweetness of fruit with a lazy bite on the palate. Best served in modern heavy bottomed but non-round glasses pre chilled and washed by three ice cubes. Battles won were celebrate with this.

29th December 2014

Mixed bag for me

There are times when I go at my bottle and it is lovely - rich, florid, honeyed sweetness with a long, pleasant finish. Inexplicably, there are other times when I give it a go that the finish isn't nice at all (like right now). Like the reviewer below, I get an unpleasant bitterness on the finish, or what might even be described as a chemical saccharine over-sweetness that coats my mouth and that's just not pleasant at all. I can't explain it.

16th December 2014

Nice step up from the 12

The Glenfiddich 12 was for a long time the most accessible single malt as it was in amongst the blends and so when you know nothing, you see single malt and pick that one up. It's OK and I like the sherry cask varieties with minimal peat-smoke so the 15 year old is a great next offering. I get the bourbon and sherry notes for sure. A nice one.

11th December 2014

Vagabond Jack

I just tried my first single malt last week and it was the Glenfiddich 15 Solera. I enjoyed it a great deal, I also had a chance to try the Macallan 12 which I really liked. Looking forward to learning more and enjoying more single malts.

14th November 2014

a bit too much bourbon

Nice dram, but like review below very bourbon nose with bitterseeet aftertouch.

3rd November 2014

nose like Jack Daniels

Like. I said a nose similar of that Jack Daniels. Much richer on the pallate, has a chocolate salty aftertouch. Nice dram

2nd November 2014


This is truly amazing, i had 4 drams with a slice of chocolate, and I changed from beer to scotch from that night!

15th September 2014

A very nice dram!

I decided to pick up a bottle after seeing some positive reviews. This cost me £37, which I could argue whether or not was too much. At the end of the day I bought it so I obviously felt this was justifiable.

The nose gives a a sweet sherry sent. I get a slight hint of spices in there as well. The palate is spicy with a slight sweetness to it. It is very pleasent to hold on the tongue. A slightly thicker/ more oily texture than a lot of other single malts. The finish is fruity, spicy, and welcome. A great single malt to help convert your friends.

This does have caramel colouring, but I don't find that such a big deal.

14th August 2014


One of my favorite whiskies. This is a regular whisky in my collection, always on the shelve. It has already been said in other reviews, but the 15y is better than the Glenfiddich 18y, this whisky probably has the best value for money than any other whisky.

30th June 2014

kirkland 18

Trying to compare this to kirklands 18 speyside single malt scotch whiskey

Very good but I find kirklands nicer

29th June 2014

Good whisky but resembles a bourbon too much

I prefer blended scotch but recently have been trying single malts. I enjoy JW Black so based on some reviews I tried a Lagavulin and don't care for it, however I figured I should try one more single malt before shunning them. The Glenfiddich 15 is good, very smooth, and has convinced me that I should continue exploring single malts. That being said this is the first scotch that when I drank it, reminded me of a bourbon (I was expecting a bourbon flavor because the bottle said it's matured in sherry, bourbon, and new oak but not that pronounced); not that it's a bad thing cause bourbons are tasty, but I haven't experienced that before and don't know how I feel about it, I only say that because I can buy Maker's Mark for half the price. So in closing it's a good whisky, and I seemed to have found a single malt that I enjoy but it's too similar to a bourbon and for that reason in my opinion it's a bit overpriced. I will enjoy drinking this bottle but don't think I'll purchase again.

Glenfiddich 15 solera

There was a disappointing bitterness on the tail. Probably one of the least attractive whiskies I have had over the years!

Great for the rotation!

I have currently 6 bottles in rotation. Chivas 12, Chivas 18, JWB 12, Glenlivet 12, Glenfiddich 15 and Laphroaig 10. And have to say that if I compare all 6 of them (which is interesting), Glenfiddich 15 wins (at least for me). For the grain/single malt mixed super high quality whiskies, Chivas 18 is waaayy better then Chivas 12, but I am not sure its worth the price tag difference, especially if you are on short budget. JWB 12 is on par with Chivas 12, there are just days when I prefer one over another, and wise versa. If you only have money for one, go with chivas 12. As for Laproaig 10, I would say that Bowmore 12 is way better. My next planned purchuse is Glenlivet 18 and Bowmore 12. And laphroig going out from the rotation. And this Glendfiddich 15, with its funny cheap price, will be forever in my rotation.

Great taste and vaule!

This is a wonderful whiskey! It help convert me from a bourbon man to a scotch fanatic! Highly recommended!

Not the most complex of whiskies but extremely drinkable, and excellent for the price.

Great value for the money

Forgot to score it.

This comes from someone who has a regular bottle of Dalmore 18 at his home: if you see this scotch, pick it up or you're missing out on something beautiful.

Absolutely fantastic whisky, great value for money and so, so dangerously drinkable. Will be ordering many more!

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!

Delicious Dram!

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.

22nd January 2014

very good scotch

the glenfeddich 15 is amazing!! for the money it cant be beat!!

19th January 2014

A very pleasant surprise.

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.

Quality Dram!

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.

Perfect for a quiet evening

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.

its ok, but...

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

29th May 2013

Great single malt

....I should have rated before enjoying the product.

20th April 2013

Great single malt

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

Too Perfect?

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.

28th February 2013


Very smooth for malt.

24th November 2012

Such fine quality :)

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

23rd August 2012

Good one!

I really liked this one particularly. Recommended

6th August 2012

A step up from the 12

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.

22nd June 2012

too gud

much more than i thought.....guddos grants

Glenfiddich 15 Solera

Much better than 12yo, i like it!

4th May 2012

Nice young malt

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.

13th October 2010

It´s a party every time I drink it

The price is good and the taste is much better.

6th August 2010

Wish you had a retail travel version

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 Art of Vatting!

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.
