Member Reviews and Ratings of Glenfiddich 18 Year Old
A bit sweet with smooth vanilla flavor, rounded with sherry notes, hints of caramel with a medium long finish. Nice fruity aftertaste.
Found this bottle to be very spicy for my taste. Would recommend for a cold night or an evening in a log cabin.
Glenfiddich has been the most popular name in the single-malt world, and for good reason. The 18-year is another example of the brand’s smooth and crisp qualities. A more prominent sherry-influenced dram than its younger counterparts, the dried fruit and nutty notes hit the nose and tongue at first, but the brand’s core notes of caramel, white fruit (red apple in this case), and soft vanilla soon take over, leading to a quick and somewhat dry finish. A good dram to be sure, but I can’t help that I find better complexity in younger (and less expensive) whiskies. If you’re a fan of Glenfiddich, you won’t go wrong in picking this up. If you are looking for an 18-year whisky that lives up to its age, look elsewhere.
Exceptional, sweet, smooth. The perfect first bottle for a new scotch aficionado.
Easy to drink, doesn’t explore much though.
Average scotch; enjoyable but not exceptional
Excellent character with a dried fruit and sherry.
Easily one of my favorites.
My absolut favourite
this is one I'll keep so good
Full rich palette that is not to over powering. Great for any occasion
This is another one I will keep in the house.
Very very smooth
Sweet but with enough bite to get your attention. Very drinkable.
Very soft on the nose. Fresh squeezed oranges and fruit. Caramel and vanilla on the tongue with a short finish.
Oh man. So good
Smooth, Sweet, Nice
Not really much to it "BORING." Smooth but lacks complexity and low abv, you can find much better for less monies.
I'd go as far as to say that this whisky is the finest of their regular range. It completely outshines the 12 and 15. Extremely smooth, sweet, an archetype of what Glenfiddich is trying to reflect. However, in order to gain an appreciation for it, you have to drink the other two in succession and compare it to other 18 year olds. That, and be willing to shell out the money for it; at that point, it loses its attractiveness.
Delicious flavor very smooth. It's a staple
Ive had the 12 year old and loved it... this bottle has been my next desired conquest but funds are needed for that lol.
Amazing and worth the money.
The 18 is a staple for any bar. Any of the single barrel "Glen's" you can't go wrong with. This one in particular, with its neighbor Tomatin 18 are equals in my book, just one is by far less expensive then the other!
The 15 year is equally as enjoyable, if not better, at a lesser price.
Sharp nose, but smooth taste
This was my first bottle of whisky. I was simple amazed and it started my path of love to whisky.
