Another cracker from the people who made the single malt the success it is today. This expression is matured in American bourbon casks for 14 years, before two further periods of maturation: 12 weeks in virgin European oak and a further 6 weeks in new American oak. As usual, Glenfiddich has surpassed itself. The combination of finishes in virgin American and European oak is a first for the industry.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Clean, fruity and fragrant (jasmin?). Oranges. Stewed apples and cloves. Ripe grapes.
Palate: Mellow, soft and rounded. Aromatic. Ginger cake. Light spice. Sultanas. Fabulous balance. Proof that for a distillery at the top of its game, look no further than Glenfiddich.
