Previous releases of the Glenfiddich 15 Year Old were labeled ‘Solera Reserve’, meaning the whisky was raised according to the Solera principle. I cannot tell if it was the same with this release. I can tell, however, that it is a damn fine dram.

The nose is very sweet and inviting. Honey, vanilla and fresh fruit: oranges, pear, green grapes. Apple compote, chocolate with raisins, sultanas. Mild on the spices with cinnamon and ginger. Some liquorice.

It has a lot more body than the 12 Year Old. Vanilla, butterscotch, lime instead of oranges, baked banana and woodspice. Even some leather. Round and creamy.

The finish is the only downside, because it is rather short. I remember cinnamon and honey.

Glenfiddich is often looked down upon, seen as a mass product, but the fact of the matter is that the guys from Dufftown know how to make good whisky.
