This review is of a bottle opened 2 years ago. Scores are for when the bottle was open for 2 months. I will also comment on what the whisky tastes like now

Nose: when first opened, many very strong and vivid flavours, crisp red wine skins, clean grape flavours, vibrant zingy pointed citrusy malt, gently integrated wood. After 2 years of the bottle open, this has sweetened enormously and become less vivid. Still it is very nice

Taste: good flavour translation from the nose; when first opened this was wonderfully intense with flavuor, crisp and delicious. After 2 years, the flavours reflect a rounded out and sweetened version, similar to the nose at 2 years

Finish: when first opened, this is the truly bizarre part: the finish lasts about 2 seconds. After 2 years bottle open, the finish is long, but the flavours are completely changed

Balance: how do you score a whisky with a 2-second finish? Glenfiddich 15 YO Distillery Edition is an outstanding malt on nose and palate. "If and only if" (the mathematician's "IFF"), you can enjoy a malt without a finish, then for you this Glenfiddich 15 YO Distillery Edition scores a 96 out of 100. Even without a finish I like this Distillery Edition much better than I like the standard Glenfiddich 15 YO Solera Malt, which to me has quite weak and thin flavours by comparison. The flavours here are great, and intense, but then they just disappear

Very interesting review @ Victor. This one seems like the one Glenfiddich to add to my cabinet at some point, as an eventual replacement for my Snow Phoenix bottle. Your two year review is key to my consumption patterns. :)
