Review: Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 Years Old


This 15-year single malt is matured in the solera style in three different types of wood casks — sherry, bourbon, and new oak.

Despite being bottled at 80 proof, it strangely comes off as hot. Even after adding a moderate amount of water, it’s still got some burn to it.

There is sherry here and lots of Christmas spice, with fruit and caramel at play in the body. It all comes together rather haphazardly, though, which is often a problem with multi-wood Scotches. Ultimately I liked it well enough, but its complexities get lost amid some mixed messages. The price is right, though!

80 proof.
