Like a beautiful woman, we don’t really mind if a gorgeous Whiskey claims to be a bit younger than it actually is… with Whiskey 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” whiskey 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.

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.

Smooooooth!

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

Smooth, light and crisp. Very drinkable. Peat lovers need not drink.

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

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.
