As expected given the name, good dram

Jennifer,
I'm not usually a lover of scotch in fact this was a gift for my husband. He loves it and I actually enjoy sipping it. It's very smooth and the over powering scotch flavor that I usually turn my nose up at is subtle and enjoyable.

Just, hard to beat this one. If a scotch lover must have.

Will,
The 18yr Glenfiddich is my favorite. The 21 is very smooth, like drink out of a juice glass smooth, but doesn't have enough body left for my taste. I think the 18 strikes the perfect balance.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
I was very disappointed with this year. It’s almost like it struggled to figure out what it wanted to be. It’s not smooth at any point in the tasting. It’s very possible that it’s just me but I would suggest that you try a sample first before buying. However, the 15 year was very enjoyable especially for the price.

When it comes to 18 year olds, she's the one I grab.

I love this whisky I visited them when I traveled to Scotland Smooth and flavorful
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Sweet and delicious. If the flavors came through to the nose like they do the palate, this would be a ten.
 
William
William,
Best overall scotch I've had to date. Very smooth. Absolutely worth the price.
 
Marcus
Marcus,
Below 18, and Glenfiddich is not that great.
 
Lynn
Lynn,
Oh my. Nicely peated and just floats. Soft finish.
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Beautiful amber color. Plenty of fruit notes like apple, a bit of raisins, oak, vanilla and honey. In the mouth some spices appear with sweet notes of honey and a long and smooth aftertaste.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Very smooth. Not to over powering.
 
Aash
Aash,
Found this bottle to be very spicy for my taste. Would recommend for a cold night or an evening in a log cabin.
 
Dennis
Dennis,
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.

Very soft on the nose. Fresh squeezed oranges and fruit. Caramel and vanilla on the tongue with a short finish.

Shawn,
Not really much to it "BORING." Smooth but lacks complexity and low abv, you can find much better for less monies.
 
David

No bite
 
Chris
Chris,
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.

Israel,
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.

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!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
The 15 year is equally as enjoyable, if not better, at a lesser price.
