A nineteen year-old Single Malt gem aged in Bourbon casks for a warm, toffee-forward flavor profile.

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. 

Building on the great success of the previous release, Glenfiddich issued the second release in their Age of Discovery collection. Glenfiddich Age of Discovery 19 Year Old Bourbon Cask Reserve represents the first time that Glenfiddich has exclusively used ex-Bourbon casks to mature their famous Single Malt for nineteen years. This additional time in seasoned American oak brings deep flavored rivers of Whisky luxury toffee and creamy vanilla to the profile. It has taken major competition trophies nearly every year since it was first released.

Smartass Corner:
The water used in Glenfiddich Single Malts come from the famous Robbie Dhu springs which bubble up through the bedrock limestone nearby.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
This massive success of Glenfiddich was managed by just 120£. That is the cost of building the distillery in 1886.
