Excerpt: I get that they make more money and it’s more “mass-market friendly” at 40% – 43%, but it would be even more robust at 46% and NCF. Anyways, bottom line on the Glenfiddich 14 is there’s nothing to hate on, but nothing to celebrate either.

This is an ex-bourbon matured Glenfiddich.
Creamy apples and pears, theres a good deal of vanilla and molasses also. Minor cinnamon spice, but nothing too heavy.
Mild and fruity, sweet with vanilla and cream and a mild char. Its not deep or complex but its light and unassuming. I dont mind it, it seems like a great dram for a picnic or for sitting on the porch reading. Despite its lack of depth, it is well blended with everything melding together nicely.
Medium and gentle. Not a whole lot here besides some nice light molasses and apples/pears.
It's not bad. If it were a couple dollars cheaper, I'd be all over it at the store. For an age stated, 14yr product in US market only, it's really not bad at all but at $50, I'm turning my eyes towards other bottles. All in all though, despite being light and simple, it's a nice summer dram.
