Like a beautiful woman, we don’t really mind if a gorgeous Whisky claims to be a bit younger than it actually is… with Whisky that is a rare virtue. 

Founded in 1887, with machinery bought from the Cardhu Distillery, William Grant created Glenfiddich. Still in the hands of the Grant family, Glenfiddich is the biggest selling malt Whisky worldwide and remains Scottish owned and independent. William Grant pioneered their Whiskies as 'single malts' at a time when malts were produced to supply the blended Whisky producers. It's a vision that has paid off, thanks for creating the category Mr. Grant!
 
If you do not know about Glenfiddich, you are not a Whisky lover. Not only are they a “top-two” producer, of premium single-malt loveliness, they are the much honored and loved Speyside of choice for many. But let’s cut to the chase. Glenfiddich 15-year Solera Method is all about the “method” part … and a wondrous method it is too. 
 
The Solera method is a long line of casks, where each year a portion of the Whisky in the first cask is moved to the second, and a portion of the second is moved to the third, and so on. No cask is ever emptied. The only thing that is bottled is the portion from the last cask. So there is always a bit of REALLY old Whisky in that final cask that gets intermingled. But …. 
 
Since Glenfiddich 15-year Solera is a date-stamped Whisky, and since—by law—all Whisky that is dated must carry the date of the “youngest” Whisky in the bottle, this means that the average age of this lovely little dram is FAR older than 15 years. So, though she claims to be 15, but we know the truth, and the truth is sweet indeed.

Fantastic
 
Cliff
Cliff,
I bought this because it sounded like something a bourbon drinker might enjoy. It is! So smooth and easy to drink, and still pleasantly complex.
 
Kent
Kent,
Probably the smoothest Scotch I have had. A variety of sweet with a hint of spice on the tip of the tongue then a burst apple/honey that moves to a very pleasing finish. I simply loved this from first taste! However it did seem to become a little bland as my taste buds got saturated.
 
David
David,
Nose 👃 ; Fruits and berries, vanilla, Taste 👅 ; Lovely honey, vanilla, some leather and oak, a little spicy cinnamon at the end, Finish ; Surprisingly long, rich and full but with a smooth sweet lingering honey,

Great sipping Scotch! Start Spicy and as the rock melts, it mellows out.
 
Dan
Dan,
Loved it. Smooth finish. Lightly sweet and smoky.
 
Norbert
Norbert,
15 years old only because the label says so. The taste and the smell have nothing to do with a 15 years old matured whisky. Due to the Solera method it tastes like a young blended whisky and has nothing special in it. It was a huge disappointment after the 12 years old one. If you are looking for and nice matured whisky you can find better options than this overpriced one.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Honey vanilla nose. The model smooth Speyside. Nice long hum for finish.
 
Liz
Liz,
A drop water really brought out the smokiness.
 
Raoul
Raoul,
Beautiful, if not enchanting nose. Classic Speyside body. Finish with slightly sharp edges, however, the nose compensates for everything this whisky has to offer.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
much sweeter than expected
 
guest
guest,
A favorite staple scotch of mine, great flavor and complexity.
 
Carl
Carl,
A good drinking single malt. This is the single malt one drinks as the second or third of the night, before the tongue has been anesthetized, but after the best in your collection.
 
David
David,
So good and smooth.
 
Joe
Joe,
Very tasty and smooth
 
Chad
Chad,
Nosy is boozy, light and crisp. Tastes like Christmas, caramel, toffee, clove.
 
Ross
Ross,
I found the immediate aroma after pouring was butterscotch...heavy. Minutes later, that turned to cream/berries. Taste was super sweet on the initial sip...then spice and berries. Warm and sweet short finish.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very smooth, oak and cinnamon in there, just the right amount of heat. Excellent dram.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Great taste and smooth. I always tend to have this on stock most of the time.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Spicy. Not as smooth as expected. Good flavor
 
James
James,
Taste-spice with after taste of honey and almond. Smokey smell
 
Miha
Miha,
Awesome dram!
 
Doug
Doug,
Great mouthfeel - silky smooth and slightly oily. Sherried finish comes through with a taste of cinnamon and maybe some berry flavor. Really really good. Made in the sherry style of Spanish bodegas so there is a blend of Glenfiddich whisky from across the different casks in their solera.
 
Mathew
Mathew,
Well balanced. A bit of oak and a bit of smoke with a little spice and a bit of fruit and malt at the finish.
 
Taylor
Taylor,
Smooth and sweet. Sherry on the front with a little spicy oak on the rear. Check this bottle out!
 
Trygve
Trygve,
Someone gave me a “Solera” bourbon, I saw this scotch on Flaviar, decided to try it. I am really glad I did. You can feel the older scotches within. The body, and mouthfeel are wonderful. The smoothness, works well with the full flavor.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
wow, what can I say simply great very smooth.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very nice. Berry on the nose with a Sherry oak flavor. The more I drink the more oak I taste. Delicious!!!

Very good!
 
Patrick
Patrick,
For the price, this bottle is hands down my favorite scotch out there. Malty, slightly spicy and a hint of caramel flavor.
 
Michael
Michael,
Wow! No words. You will have to pick up a bottle
 
guest
guest,
I love how spicy it hits the tip of my tongue, then it travels smooth and warm down my throat, and as it hit its final destination to settle, a smile across my face as I reminisce the feeling of that last sip before I take another. Such an amazing smooth drink.

One of my favorites, always a treat.
 
Robyn
Robyn,
I didn’t care much for the spiciness. It was initially smooth but burned a bit going down. Think I’ll give it a second chance before completely writing it off..

Sehr karamellige und toffee-reiche Nase und Zunge, ein Hauch Kakao. Nachgang sehr schwer, stört den Trinkfluss. 8/18, Wien
 
Thomas
Thomas,
As someone who drinks a lot of scotch, especially from the Speyside and Highland regions I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this is the first time I've tried one from Glenfiddich and I'm glad I finally did. This dram was a gem. Very smooth. You definitely get the vanilla, oak and sherry. Only wish it was bottled a tad bit hotter but a bottle of this will certainly be making an appearance in my collection.
 
Daryl
Daryl,
Smoothness of a 15 year. Good flavor.
 
Nate
Nate,
A bit more on the wet and sweet side. Highly palatable but drinks more like a juice than a scotch.
 
Brett
Brett,
Excellent. Very smooth and sweet. you can taste the vanilla notes.
 
Harrison
Harrison,
One of my favorite all time drams. Smooth and warm with the right amount of spice and balance.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
I like this a lot. One of my favorites. Light fruity bouquet that doesn't over power the nose or the palate. Smooth until the end and leaves the taster refreshed. Slightly sweet.
 
James
James,
Lighter than expected but still a great Scotch whisky!
 
Brooks
Brooks,
Nice mix of depth, balance, and smoothness.
 
Russ
Russ,
A nice whisky with a fairly complex flavor profile. Nice on the nose and very enjoyable. Very affordable for the complexity of the profile.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Much better on the second sip. Very flavorful. A well balanced sweetness to it at the beginning. Then it reminds you it's still Glenfiddich.
 
Keith
Keith,
Great moderately priced Scotch. It’s one of my go-to drinks.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Disappointing, but maybe I was expecting too much. I liked the spice on the nose (licorice or anise, I think...). The taste fell a bit flat for me though.
 
Rob
Rob,
Had a great after taste smooth. A keeper!
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Spicy, dried fruits, cinnamon and caramel, nice taste and long finish
 
Piotr
Piotr,
Very rich fruity nose, sweet, beautiful. I expected more taste. The finish is wonderful - long but delicate, sweet - veeeery nice.
 
Scott
Scott,
Smooth, lightly sweet, and very little smokiness and peat. One of our favorites that we've tried, and definitely our favorite in the Speyside tasting kit.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Always good. Classic flavor with more depth than the 12 yo.
 
Easton
Easton,
Me likey, that is all.

I'm in love with this whiskey. Hints of peat and oak, with a smooth vanilla and honey taste.

Absolute all time favourite whisky.

Another fruity, honey and cinnamon-y after taste. Very smooth whisky.
 
Devlin
Devlin,
Just spicy enough
 
Braxton
Braxton,
I am very aware of the Glenfiddich scotches! This one is no different from the other ones I have experienced. Very good Scotch!
 
Martin
Martin,
A staple to any bar. A wonderful aroma that matches smooth taste with just small bite at the end. Great for an evening nightcap. From the novice whisky drinker to a seasoned one, it surely will be kept in my collection.
 
Damon
Damon,
Smooooooth!
 
Brad
Brad,
Glenfiddich has never disappointed me. As usual on the sweet side of scotches with hints of cinnamon and Sherry being the most noticeable then mellowing into vanilla and oak. Finish was smooth and warm. Highly recommended for beginner to seasoned scotch drinkers.
 
Bob
Bob,
Smooth, light and crisp. Very drinkable. Peat lovers need not drink.
 
guest
guest,
A standout dram for me. The richness and character from the Solera system was quite detectable and attractive, and all at a fantastic price for a poor whisky-lover like myself.
 
Jimi
Jimi,
Smoother than a baby's butt, with a sweet and mellow aftertaste. Simply fantastic.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Wow! While not necessarily a scotch-lover's scotch, it has a remarkably complex flavor. If you are looking for earthy, peaty tones, look elsewhere. If you want light vanilla mixed with some rose and black cherry with just a little smoke then this is your selection. Great with some ice cold granite on a summer night.
 
Andy
Andy,
Great quality for the price you pay. Good starter whisky for anyone interested in scotch
 
Paul
Paul,
wonderful flavour
 
Matt

Wow,tastes not what I expected from smell. S:cherry, tobacco, T: fruit, sweet, chocolate

Love it
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
This is my go to drink for relaxation, there's no going wrong with this single malt. The flavor is smooth and bold; and personally I enjoy this on chilled metal cubes.
 
Richard
Richard,
Pretty unimpressive bit fine. This would be a great malt for beginners. Nose was non-existent. I got vanila, cherry cola, and malt notes with a short finish. You could look at this as a session scotch to be drank through the night.
 
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
Great scotch, smooth, light sweetness.
 
Pat
Pat,
Very robust and flavorful. Add a little water, and it develops into a fantastic drink of sweet, oaky goodness. One of my new favorites.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Lovely sweet notes and quite complex. A single drop of water adds to the experience if left for a few minutes with a lid covering the glass.complex and engaging!
 
Corey
Corey,
Not my favorite. It's just a bit harsh.
 
Virgil
Virgil,
Nice and smooth scotch with a clean finish. Slightly smokey. Well balanced.
 
John
John,
Simply exceptional-- now that I've looked up the great price...I added a star.
 
Paul
Paul,
This is one of my favorite drinks. Complex, sweet and oh so smooth.
 
guest

Definitely a step up from the 12. Goes down nicely

Fantastic and consistent dram due to the Solera system. Give a bottle as a gift and see the recipient smile.
