This fourteen-year-old Bourbon cask reserve version of Glenfiddich’s iconic Single Malt is a stellar dram with a brilliant mouth-feel.
The famous Glenfiddich Distillery was founded by Scotch Whisky legend William Grant in 1887 with used equipment acquired from the Cardhu Distillery. Remaining in the hands of the Grant family to this day, Glenfiddich is the biggest selling Single Malt Whisky worldwide and can be found in quality pubs from Indonesia and Beijing to Morocco and Los Angeles. Not only are they a top producer of premium Single Malt by volume, they are a much honored and loved go-to Speyside of choice for millions of loyal fans.
Glenfiddich 14 Year Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve has made several appearances in the Glenfiddich line-up, and each appearance is a welcome one. For a while it was available in the US only, but now demand in the EU and Asia has given this fine dram a wider audience.
As the name clearly states, this is the classic — iconic — Glenfiddich Speyside Single Malt aged a full fourteen years in ex-Bourbon casks. The Spirit is transferred to deeply-charred virgin American casks for finishing and then bottled at 43% ABV.
The water used in Glenfiddich Single Malts come from the famous Robbie Dhu springs which bubbles up through the bedrock limestone nearby.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
We could sit and just sniff this dram all day with its notes of warm butter, English toffee, crisp biscuits, and dash of baking spices over a floating hint of marmalade.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens with a delicate and creamy mouth-feel with more of that English toffee flavor taking center stage with apples, pear, lemon zest, and spicy cinnamon doing lovely things as well.
The finish is very warm and very smooth.
