General description

Smooth, sweet, and light on the first encounter. Great to have with a person new to scotch who wants something easy to manage. One mistake I made was "wetting my whistle" with a Famous Grouse, which killed all the sherry taste -- do not do this.

It is a light scotch, so the food eaten earlier and the conditions of tasting matter for this one. However, if you have your sensitivities heightened it is a very nice drink. Lots of honey, and a little sherry, wood, and spice. It is growing on me more and more.

Dobrze czuć beczki po sherry, w smaku ciasto maślane z jabłkami, trochę rodzynek, ale nie za słodko, alkoholu praktycznie nie czuć wcale. Przyjemna, wieczorowa whisky, chętnie będę po nią sięgał na czysto - bez kapki wody, bez lodu.

I remember this whisky winning a “best of the evening” tasters choice award at a friends only whisky evening.

A lesson for me in my whisky journey as I was entirely flawed as to why people would prefer this entirely average, entirely coloured, entirely filtered. Boring, not very complex or challenging malt….

… how naive of me, but then that’s life hey, and that’s why Glenfiddich is such a popular whisky for almost anyone except actual whisky drinkers

General description

Very smooth and almost silky, but lacks complexity. The vatting process and the aging in three different containers produces an exceptionally smooth whisky, but surprisingly limits its character. The nose is almost dainty with sherry and apple notes the more noticeable. The palate is silky smooth and sweet; adding water brings out honey. The finish has a nice bitter sweet ending that lasts a good while. Overall, its well worth the price point and its smooth character and price might make up for its limited complexity.

Nose

Sherry and apple.

Palate

Honey, orange peels, and oak.

Livet 15 and Fiddich 15 offer interesting contrast at similar price and aging. Fiddich makes denser, bolder first impression eith dark fruits and toffee, but Livet has a more complex and interesting mid palate to finish with lighter and more citric orangy accents with gentle sweetness. Neither has the clarity of palate combined with maturity of Highland Park 18, but both are good drams at 1/3 the price and worthy whisky to be in rotation.

Nose: Dark fruits, sultanas and raisins, banana, pineapple. Light oak and vanilla. A minty scent on the background, and chocolate as well. Reminds me of Christmas.

Palate: Very smooth and rich, sweet and almondy. Keep it enough time in your mouth and you'll start getting caramel and some oak bitterness. Fruity.

Finish: Not too long, the oak is the main element.
