User Reviews of the Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera

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.

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.

amazing

Superb

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 scotch...you will find you tastes and preference evolve and change as you yourself age

3rd October 2015

lovely

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

Amazing

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

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.

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

Great

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

Bart

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.

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.

21st June 2014

Glenfiddich 15 solera

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

16th June 2014

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.

22nd May 2014

Great taste and vaule!

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

23rd April 2014

Lovely

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

7th April 2014

Excellent

Great value for the money

21st March 2014

Excellent

Forgot to score it.

9th March 2014

Excellent

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.

9th March 2014

Amazing!

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

Clive Murray

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!

27th February 2014

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.

16th February 2014

again!

2nd time was much more familiar the with taste which sends all of us for coming counting. feel better!

10th February 2014

nice going!

it was very good night with my first ever try yesterday. friends enjoyed as well as i did.

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.

21st December 2013

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.

22nd August 2013

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.

24th July 2013

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.

20th April 2013

GREAT DRAM

GOOD STUFF.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.GREAT QUALITY.

Have a go & you will be pleased with this.well done the boys at glen f

29th March 2013

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

Chris

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

14th June 2012

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!!!

30th April 2010

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.
