Glenfiddich 23 Years Old Grand Cru Cask Strength


Glenfiddich 23 Years Old Grand Cru Cask Strength whisky review: Sadly I haven’t tried the released Grand Cru expression at 40% to compare this too, in honesty this was a little closed and woody at 56.4% and required a drop of water. The result was an explosion of sweet fruit, cereal malted barley and gentle woody oak balanced to perfection. 90/100

Glenfiddich 30 Years Old 1987 Rare Collection

Glenfiddich 50th-02_1

Glenfiddich 30 Year Old Rare Collection Cask No. 20050 whisky review: A fantastically aged Glenfiddich, the masses of dried fruits and tannic and leathery rancio notes of wood and tobacco had me, possibly along with the colour, convinced this may have seen sherry wood during its maturation? They state officially american oak which doesn’t preclude sherry per se but now I’m wondering if this is just a combination of Glenfiddich’s spirit and a long maturation in ex-bourbon casks? Regardless this is a supreme whisky well worthy of inclusion in the rare cask collection and a delightful celebration of Glenfiddich’s 50 years open to the public! 93/100

Glenfiddich 12 Years Old


Glenfiddich 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review: A classic expression from Glenfiddich with a huge hit of fruity and fresh pears on the nose that travels throughout this whisky. Expertly constructed using American and Sherry oak casks. I love the slightly drying nature in the finish making me want to revisit the freshness on the nose again. 83/100
