Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @Jeffry747
  • Rating: 70/100
  • Review: “Starts off with a nice, robust complex nose. Woody, with pear, grapefruit, and just a hint of maple. Once you taste it, it’s too similar to the Glenfiddich 12 year, with the same malt, sherry, and pear notes. The oak spice, however, is a little more intense. Mouthfeel is dry, and the finish is of medium length, with malt, oak spice, and some sherry.”

Jameson Orange

  • Category: Flavored
  • Origin: Ireland
  • Author: @Jhender4
  • Rating: 40/100
  • Review: “Smells almost like orange soda – sweetness that eventually becomes more orange smelling – no traditional whiskey notes, besides a faint whiff of ethanol. in the palate, it’s thick, flat orange soda with more bitterness. doesn’t evolve. on the finish, starts with the orange soda, then you get some bitterness that becomes its final notes. might make a good mixed drink?”
