65/100
The colour is gold, the nose fresh and oscillates between fruity (apple, peer) and vegetal (cut hay) fragrances.
The dry palate confirms the nose, and detects some peat hints.
The finish comes back to malted barley, and is not very long.
Personal Comment
The nose recognizes immediately a slightly malted Speyside. A little Speyside, without surprises. This first impression is confirmed in the mouth. No flavour explosion as in some other malts from the same region. A good little whisky. The finish is short. This malt is probably the best seller world around, but stays a little whisky... But its price makes it a good quality-price rating.
65/100
Appearance: Pale gold or slightly darker. Nose: Simple but elegant. Dry with fruity hints. Lots of pear and kiwi with some fragrant rosy scents. Diluted nose becomes more floral and fragrant. Lavender hints and apple-mints appear. Again, very pleasant, but simple and straight forward.. Body: Light Palate: Pretty sharp, dry. Some fruit carries over but the palate is even simpler and less complex than the nose. Medium finish which becomes a little woody towards the end. Easy to drink and good, but un-interesting.

Personal Comment
Undoubtedly a good sample of Speyside whisky. The well balanced nose is not too complex. A hint of spices. The palate confirms this first nose impression. But one could be surprised to know this whisky has spent 21 years in a cask. One could expect some more from a whisky of that age. The finish is relatively short, and confirms the spicy impression.
74/100
A second tasting, months later, just confirmed the first impression. Just a good whisky...
74/100
The nose is clearly on cereals with a hint of spices (pepper) and a touch of sweet citrus fruit. In the palate, an impression of smoothness too, with a slightly acid touch, vanilla hints and a very discrete nut hint on the background. A nice range of tastes, however without an evident contrast which would give it the complexity it misses... A quite short finish between wood and pepper, where both ingredients are rather diluted.
79/100
A mix of malt and yeast without any depth.
The mouth is desperately missing any complexity. Just a kind of useless bitterness, I mean a bitterness which does not enhance the whisky.
The finish is of the same kind.
Not really the bottle to buy.

The colour is gold. The nose is slightly peaty, with chocolate hints.
The palate is oily and fruity (pear), spicy and slightly chocolaty.
The warm finish comes back to spices
Personal Comment
A light peat hint delights the nose immediately. The fragrances in the mouth are pleasant and the malty sweetness, so typical for the area is present as well. A very good whisky, balancing the sweetness and the character. The particular maturing method made a very great and surprisingly malt. If Glenfiddich is the world around best seller, it is not known as producing the best whisky. This bottle is the exception.
79/100
This whisky distinguishes itself by the sweetness of his smell and taste. The second tasting just confirms the first one. A nose dominated by a quite malt and a rather round taste. This whisky is however far away from the whiskies with strong personality, but there is nothing wrong with it.
79/100
The third tasting just confirmed the two first ones.
79/100
A nice nose, somewhere between pepper and fruit, nicely complex. Pleasant sea notes, salt and a light woody bitterness.
The impression in the palate is pleasant and smooth despite the light dominant bitterness.
The finish prolongs perfectly the mouth. Pleasant but not spectacular.
79/100
Appearance: Like new engine oil with sparkling pearls. Old Gold. Nose: Mellow and warming. Quite clean with fruity scents. Slightly oily and medicinal, a bit of rose scent, very fragrant. Develops a bit of smoke with water, burnt grass and stronger fruitiness. Flavour: Smooth mouth feel. Very clean and creamy. Oily, dense and chemical, but very mellow. Like scented children's medicine and cocked vegetables. Development: The dram stands up very well against air exposure. After an hour; light sweat drop, the slight smoke I noticed earlier has now vanished almost entirely to be replaced by a mossy aroma. Still feels sort of chemical. Comments: A nice dram to go with coffee or a cigar.

Glenfiddich Caoran reserve
COLOUR : yellow gold.
NOSE : fruity (peach) and liquorice, it develops on heady perfumed flowers (peony, lily), on a background of smoky notes.
Palate : first liquorice, and then fruity (apricot, peach). It is also marked by a pleasant menthol and vanilla freshness.
The finish is smooth and reveals the fruity notes (ripe peer) which are typical of Glenfiddich, on a background of smoky malted barley.

Personal Comment
The nose is first dry and without depth, before developing discrete fruity aromas. The vanilla is present. In the palate, the first impression is rather sweet, before developing on more pronounced tastes, with some light spices, without losing the vanilla background. The finish recalls strongly the vanilla, with some far smoke hints.
79/100
At the second tasting, the nose was extremely discrete an only some remote hints of malt with a touch of smoke appeared. The palate is slightly fruity, dry and a kind of smokey veil preceeds some more bitter aromas. The whole shows a lack at character, except may be the finish, which is quite nice, first slightly fruity and then dominated by a kind of woody bitterness.
