Ordered June 9th,tracking info on June 10th and delivered June 13th. My god, but that is efficient!
What a delightful treat it was to open the bottle and pour the first drink! I am by no means an expert, but I do know what I like. Compared to the 18YO, this was less sweet and less peaty, but had a fantastic aroma and exquisite flavor. Smoky enough for me, with great balanced malt feel and overall a better finish than others I have tried.

Not been drinking malts for too long so i'm here there and everywhere trying allsorts of different. This is one of a rare few that i've bought more than once. Considering it's a bit on the pricey side that's pretty big praise. You get a massive smack of flavours and expect a sharp burn to follow but not at all even though i only add a dash of water. Highly recommended.

Splendid nose with fruit and oak aromas. Round and oily body with very vibrant aromas. The fact that this GF was not chill-filtered and not-colored as well as being bottled at a higher ABV strength is decidedly rewarding for the refined scotch drinker: you can smell and taste every flavor that is originally intended to be there. There is definitely a kick to this dram, thanks to the 51% ABV. The most unique commercial GF out there if also not best value for the money.

Great dram! No chill-filtering and/or coloring. Not overly peaty. Complex nose, both with fruit aromas and some smoke, powerful but not empowering. very well balanced indeed. Possibly the best GF for the money. What a steal at this price!

I think this bottling is the only way to try GF at a decent strength and without chill-filtering - without breaking the bank, that is. And the result is very pleasant indeed. A complex nose, some lovely honey on the palate, and a long, warming finish. And very, very well balanced. Luscious, and dangerously drinkable.
If only they would bottle more GF this way...

I love it much better, than a regular 15. A bit less smoky, it does not have anything to do with Islay's, like someone mentioned, commenting 15. Nice for enjoying alone.
