Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

10. Oct 2016
Compared to the mass-produced 12-year-old Single Malt, Glenfiddich 15 Solera Vat is definitely a step up in quality. Rich and delicate fruitiness dominates the nose, in particular ripe apples, banana and grapes. Fresh spiciness and sherry cask influence add to the complexity of the malt. On the palate, the fruity notes are more subdued. Vanilla cream and honey sweetness are complemented by mild spices, most notably cinnamon. The finish is moderately long, bittersweet and spicy but not very substantial. High demand for oak casks unfortunately takes its toll.
RATING: 3.8/5.0 ≙ 87 pts

Nosing:
An intriguingly complex aroma. Sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits.
Taste:
Silky smooth, revealing layers of sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full-bodied and bursting with flavour.
Finish:
Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.
