Glenffidich 18 Ancient Reserve

Postby ScotchPalate » Wed Apr 04, 2007 7:15 pm

I think this is a really great dram. No, not the best./ But for $60 it's a fantastic value. No, it ain't heavy on the peat. However, it has a great apple-cinnamon, spice, some nutmeg and good dose of malt. I really enjoy it. Anybody else?

I agree with that, it is one of my favorite drams!

$60 sounds pretty expensive. I think I'd only buy it at a discount in a supermarket. I did enjoy the bottle I bought but I thought it could do with being 43% or 46% because it seemed a little bit "thin" for the style.

Cn$60 (about £30 or £35) is a very good price for that--that is to say, an 18yo OB, without taking any Frodometric measurements. Unfortunately, the two bottles I've purchased were before I started keeping track of prices, but I'm quite sure I paid considerably more than that. (Theoretically, anyway--they were duty-free purchases made with store credit from earned commission, so in point of fact I paid no cash.)

"Frodometric" What a great word. Too bad it can only be used here.

Frodometrics - the science of determining whisk(e)y value.

Complete range of their products is so much better than they were producing 7 or 8 years ago. I would now endorse them to anyone. Sorry no great words to add though :wink:
