This whisky is quite interesting as it’s matured in 3 types of casks (American bourbon, Portuguese sherry and virgin oak), After which the whisky is married in a Solera vat .

Nose: Dried fruit, Kirsch, Sherry and some wee citrus.

Palate: Sweet, with dried fruits galore, cocoa, and a lot of spices. Very nice.

Finish : Long, with malty, dried fruits, sugar and Oak chips.

Bottom line:

Very good whisky, Rich, and complex, with a lot of that wonderful dried fruitiness. It was also the favourite among the Crowd. Well done!

I prefer the 12 and 18 year old.

I've never had the 18 year old but I'm not the biggest fan of the 12. Personally I love the 15 year old too. Back when I was relatively new to single malts and hadn't branched out too far yet, the 15 was my go to whisky.

@galg, thank you for another nice review. I much prefer the 51% ABV Distillery Edition of the Glenfiddich 15 to the standard bottling. That said, Jim Murray is unfortunately very accurate in saying that the finish of the DE disappears quite quickly. If the finish is your, you will probably stay with the standard. My palate still prefers the DE's more intense less-diluted flavours though.

Correction for omitted word: "...If the finish is your thing, you will probably stay with the standard."
