Whiskies (28)

Glenfiddich 12 Years Old, Special Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Glenfiddich has much more roundness of flavour since it switched from 'no age statement' to 12 years.

Glenfiddich 12 Years Old, Special Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Easy-going, fresh and fruity, but the palate does not reflect the liveliness of the nose.

Glenfiddich 12 Years Old, Toasted Oak
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A bit of a let down after such a great nose. A very pretty whisky but higher alcohol might have given it better impact in the mouth.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfiddich 15 Years Old, Solera Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Elegant. Well-balanced to the point of suavity.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfiddich 15 Years Old, Solera Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Light but very smooth. Scores points for its suave smoothness and sweetness.

Glenfiddich 18 Years Old, Ancient Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Scores points for sophistication and sherry character.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenfiddich 1965 Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.80%
8 A playful whisky for one of such maturity. Starting very sweetly, but reluctant to reveal its secrets. Give it time to reveal its complexity.

Glenfiddich 1967, Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 On the light side among older Glenfiddichs, but delicate and appetising.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfiddich 1973 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.10%
8 Beautifully calm and seamless after the rugged attack of the Laphroaig.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfiddich 1973 Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.50%
8 Luxurious and sweet, but background is gently dry. Deftly balanced and sophisticated, as ever.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenfiddich 1991 Vintage Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Gentle. Accessible. Enjoyable.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenfiddich 21 Years Old, Gran Reserva
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Delivers more than expected. Seems a bit bland at start but it displays an attractive array of aromas and flavours on time. The rum influence is under control.

Glenfiddich 21 Years Old, Millennium Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Lighter and more delicate than the 21 Years Old that appeared in a Wedgwood decanter in years past.

Glenfiddich 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Luxurious, but in a restrained, understated way.

Glenfiddich 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Salient house characteristics, especially the chocolate, at their boldest and most sustained.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenfiddich 40 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.60%

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Glenfiddich 40 Years Old, Rare Collection
Single Malt - Scotland - 44.00%
8 Extraordinary flavour development. An astonishingly complex whisky.

Glenfiddich Age of Discovery
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A new land for Glenfiddich and the drinker. Recommended.

Glenfiddich Caoran Reserve, 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A more sprightly Glenfiddich than the standard 12. Thirst-quenching. Peatiness and the smoked finish aren't as 'distinct' as the label suggests.

Glenfiddich Experimental Series #01 IPA Experiment
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 As much as I like American oak, it was too dominant on the palate for me.

Glenfiddich Experimental Series #02 Project XX
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.00%
7 Approach-able, soft and safe.

Glenfiddich Havana Reserve, 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 The less pronounced rum character of the two Caribbean accented whiskies in this tasting. When you cook, do you want the herbs and spices to announce themselves individually, or to be part of the blen...

The Whisky Exchange Glenfiddich 1974 50th Anniversary of the Queen's Coronation
