A rich and complex Speyside Single Malt bottle of love.

Scotch Whisky legend William Grant founded the Glenfiddich distillery in 1887 with old equipment bought from the Cardhu Distillery. Still in the hands of the Grant family in Scotland, Glenfiddich is the best selling Single Malt Whisky worldwide. If you do not know about Glenfiddich, you’re not a Whisky lover. Not only are they a top volume producer of premium Single Malt loveliness, but they are a much honored and loved Speysider of choice for millions of raving fans — serving up a wide range of Single Malt agings, casks, and special editions.

Glenfiddich 18 Year Old Small Batch Reserve starts as straight-froward, core Glenfiddich Single Malt. It’s fairly common for Scottish Whiskies to be aged in Bourbon barrels and some are “finished” in Sherry casks. What sets this dram apart is that the spirit was aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks for the full eighteen years. Spending all that time in fully-seasoned wood doesn’t “just” add flavor. It develops an approachable depth of character and complexity that really shines with flavor. Add this one to your “must taste” list and grab a bottle now.

Smartass corner:
Back in the day, distilleries sold their production wholesale to supply the blended Whisky market. William Grant was the first to bottle and label their Whiskies as “Single Malts.” It's a vision that has paid off, creating the category we know and love today.

This is a wow whiskey, super smooth and subtle fruits. The apricot on the nose following through to a smooth fading finish of honet that clings to the tongue as it fades away to salted caramel... Just as it ways on the bottle

Mariano,
As a whisky aficionado, I must say that found in this one an awesome single malt. It’s smooth and sweet, but a bit spicy though. I guess it worth the money.

Spicy, warm, sweet-ish. First Glenfiddich Ive liked.

Michael,
Smooth, well balanced, complexity that only gets richer as you sip it. If you add any water, use as little as possible as a little goes a long way toward opening it up, and then never do it again. Let your pallet and nose guide you and you’ll have no regrets. And the sweet finish will emerge to polish the experience.

Very very very rich fruity nose, sweet, incredibly beautiful. Big, fruity mouth. The finish is wonderful - long, sweet - veeeery nice, stronger than 15yo. Everything is more and smoother than 15yo. Great.
