Glenfiddich 30 Year Old

An impressively well-aged single malt from the world-famous Glenfiddich Distillery. This 30 year old expression spends its maturation in Bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, carefully watched over by the Glenfiddich Malt Master. Appropriately, it comes presented in a handsome wooden box, as well as having a very stylish bottle.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Cocoa, espresso coffee, oak, malt, hints of very rich sherry. A perfect Glenfiddich, with predominance of sublime oak.

Palate Very rich with a mix of dates, peels and nuts from the sherry barrel, and then a surge of vanilla sweetness and oak. Hints of blossom, mixed fruits.

Finish Long and malty, toffee and honeyed sweetness.

Reviews for Glenfiddich 30 Year Old - Pre 2014
I found this to be a perfected version of the 18. So much more complex. I was recommended a dab of water - do not do this. Ruined the experience. Drink it straight and let the euphoria take over. Well worth the £500 price tag.

Excellently Crafted
I was fortunate enough to afford this for my 30th birthday.
I'd say I'm an apprentice in this hobby, having "critically" tried 22 single malts averaging about 15y, so take the following with a pinch of amateurism.

Nose: Ripe plum, soft marmalade, developing into a gentle nectar with a tiny hint of lemon.
Tate: Silky smooth, malty, a bit spicy. A few small sips unveil a caramelized croissant with a small hint of chocolate on top.
Aftertaste: Long, starting with a slightly harsh spiciness, developing into cacao, hints of brown sugar and butter, hints of plum, eventually settling back to butter.

If the above sounds silly, consider I drank a whole glass of the stuff.
It's not my personal favourite (that'd be the Bushmills 21), but it's evident that this is a unique drink, delivering a high standard whether you know what you're drinking or not.
The one thing I didn't like in this one is that the taste takes a little a while to open up, starting a little bland, requiring a few sips to show up some flavour. I like the younger Balvenies and the pricier Macallans more in that regard (18y Fine Oak and 12y Sherry Oak).

It was pricey and was informed by the shop owner it is discontinued. It was a marvelous drink. Kept away half bottle for memory sake. It comes in a nice wooden box. Looks very exclusive. Grab it is you an find it. I am looking for another one for stock.....

Glenfiddich 30 Year Old 2010 Release
Here we have a gastronomic, dare I say "scotchtronomic" delicacy which magnifies the best of the Glenfiddich profile and fulfils a promise of royalty without bow or curtsey but with a most memorable dram. (Murray C., Canada)

This and the Master of Malt 50 year were the two main events at our annual 2012 tasting. Words can not describe this simply stunning 30-year. The adjectives used for the nose and palate are understated. You experience those and so much more. An absolutely joyful experience.
