Glenfiddich 18 years old


Adult Glenfiddich..

My whisky collection Testing / Tasting
(84 points)


It stands itself on my shelf, such a small bottle with the inscription Glenfiddich 18 years old, 40% ABV. I don’t even remember from where I got it. It seems that somewhere in Asia, it was added to a large bottle of Glenfiddich. It makes no sense that it would stand so alone longer and get dusted. Definitely it must feel neglected. I have to take care of it.
In the summer I described a 12 years old version, there I put a lot of links to other posts about this distillery and its spirits. I recommend that post to everyone interested in the topic closer.

And what our 18 yo thinks about the situation? Let’s ask.

N: quite varied, I’ve got sweet tones of vanilla, toffee and butter biscuits, also fruits, it doesn’t run out of apples, pears, plums, and perhaps candied oranges, further some sherry elements appear with dried prunes in chocolate, raisins, to all of this I find slightly harsher tones, maybe white pepper but at a sustainable level, from time to time with the touch of wood, generally smell is complex, but not particularly intense, you have to focus on it;

T: from the beginning here are sparks in the mouth, white pepper, then sweet with vanilla, further fruits, plums, oranges and grapefruits, followed by ginger with intensifying bitterness and wooden elements;

F: medium long with plums and ginger, dry.

Score: 84.

As it should be with adults Glenfiddich 18 years old is sedate and mature, both in taste and smell. Pity that tasting impressions are somewhat suppressed by the minimum ABV – 40%, although in everyday sipping it should not bother too much.
