The Glenfiddich 18 year old is a pleasing, easy-going Speyside single malt offering up apple, oak and sherry flavors with some measure of complexity. If I was marooned on a desert island, I would not seek this 18 year old to be my sole drink of choice because there are better ones out there.
Apples move to the forefront. Definitely more floral.
The apples on the nose appear initially on the tongue and quickly moves to honey.
18/25. The flavors are well balanced and can be easily discerned.

Glenfiddich 18 year old is a fine single malt scotch that is reasonably priced and delivers quality. However, compared to other 18 year old single malts, it falls behind. This is not the greatest booty this scotch pirate has plundered. It’s not bad, but not what I consider to be truly great 18 year old single malt scotch. So what is? Highland Park 18 year old , The Macallan 18 year old and some others. Those 18 year olds have more complexity of flavors. I guess a criticism of the Glenfiddich 18 year old is that for the age I expected more flavors. Not a lot more, just a little.
While Highland Park 18 year old and The Macallan 18 are superior in flavor profile, they are also much more expensive. So, let’s level the playing field a bit and compare the Glenfiddich 18 to another 18 year old in the same price range, namely The Glenlivet. Again The Glenlivet edges out Glenfiddich 18. Tasted neat, they are neck and neck, but add a little water and The Glenlivet pulls out in front with more complexity.
