Glenfiddich 15 Year Old
Glenfiddich 15 Year Old is created using a process unique amongst Scotch whisky distillers - the Glenfiddich Solera System. This 15 year old malt is matured to perfection in three different types of oak cask: sherry, traditional bourbon and new oak. The whisky is then brought together in the large, handcrafted wooden Solera Vat, which is always kept at least half full. This ensures a consistent, finely balanced single malt. The process is completed by a settling period (marrying) in smaller Solera Tuns.
Tasting Notes Nose: Intriguingly complex aroma with sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits Taste: Silky smooth, revealing layers sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full bodied and bursting with flavor. The finish is satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness Click to buy
Glenfiddich 18 Year Old
A rare single malt created for the connoisseur, Glenfiddich 18 Year Old is a fine testament to the art of the craftsman. The whisky’s complex character and sublime mellowness come from the long years of maturation in the finest Oloroso sherry casks and traditional bourbon casks. The resulting touch of sweetness from the sherry wood is perfectly balanced by the oakiness drawn from the traditional casks to deliver a single malt Scotch whisky of brilliant character – smooth and full-bodied.
Tasting Notes Nose: Remarkably rich aroma with ripe orchard fruit, spiced apple and a robust oakiness. Taste: Richly delivers luxurious dried fruit, candy peel and dates overlaid with elegant oak notes. The finish is warming, rewarding and distinguished Click to buy
Glenfiddich 21 Year Old
This Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky completed its maturation in casks that previously held aged Caribbean rum. Glenfiddich Malt Master David Stewart regularly samples whisky from the casks to ensure that the Glenfiddich acquired just the right level of finish.
Tasting Notes Nose: Intense and vanilla sweet, floral, hints of banana, figs, rich toffee, new leather and oak. Taste: Initially soft, then brisk, vibrant and drying, peppery, a touch of smoke, oak, lime, ginger and spices. The finish is very long, warming, dry and spicy Click to buy
