Distillery Exclusive […]

Today it is time for available only in the distillery Glenfiddich 15 years old, cask strength 58.1% ABV. I bought that bottle and I filled it myself there. It comes from batch 20 its no is 81. Everything happened four years ago on September 24, 2013. To an even greater joy the Master Distiller Brian Kinsman dedicated it to me. Brian once again thank you and best regards. In fact, the whole trip was very successful. [caption id=attachment_7440 align=alignnone width=1920] Glenfiddich 15 years old 58.1% ABV Distillery Exclusive[/caption] C: amber; N: still in the bottle I have an explosion of fruit: peach, apricot, orange, apple, pear and plum, all interwoven with vanilla and pleasant oak - a very good omen of what will happen next, I have big expectations ;), in the glass it begins with delicate pepper, ginger, but at once I also have the sweetness of vanilla, caramel and a little oak, in the second phase the pre-existing fruits come back all the time maintained and replaced by each other, then there are spices, cardamom and escalating ginger, after adding a few drops of water it became sweeter with more orange, in general malt opens even more; T: mmmm blissful and comprehensive with a slight sparking on the tongue, sweet vanilla, caramel and toffee, ripe oranges, cooked apples and pears, fruit cake, prunes also in chocolate, then traces of oak and ginger, after addition of a few drops of water it just opened up beautifully; F: long, sweet with ripe orange and ginger. Score: 90. Glenfiddich 15 years old 58.1% ABV Distillery Exclusive is much to my liking, it is versatile and beautifully balanced. Taste corresponds well to smell. Despite of the high power it is possible to taste without adding water, though for the experiment a few drops will not harm.

    US Exclusive

    During the holidays in Florida, by the way of buying champagne on New Years Eve 2016, I had, of course, revise a shelf with single malts.

According to the label this version is offered exclusively in the US. Matured in bourbon casks for 14 years and then finished in the fresh American oak. The concept here is...

    Adult Glenfiddich.

    It stands itself on my shelf, such a small bottle with the inscription Glenfiddich 18 years old, 40% ABV. I dont even remember from where I got it. It seems that somewhere in Asia, it was added to a large bottle of Glenfiddich. It makes no sense that it would stand so alone longer and get dusted. Definitely it must feel neglected. I have to take care of it. In the summer I described a 12 years old version, there I put a lot of links to other posts about this distillery and its spirits. I...

    40% ABV, 14 years old

    About a few Glenfiddichs I wrote on my blog. Eg. Snow Phoenix, Age of Discovery 19 years old Red Wine Cask Finish. There are a lot of them still to write. I also had the opportunity to visit the distillery and I have good memories. Today I decided to reach for the Rich Oak, which I bought about three or four years ago at the airport, a liter bottle. At first glance, it seems that it is NAS (no age statement), but more detailed analysis of the label shows 14 years. In addiction finished in...

    how to take advantage of the misfortunes

    In January 2010, under the pressure of a large amount of snow several Glenfiddichs warehouses collapsed. With this misfortune Glenfiddichs Malt Master Brian Kinsman took advantage and using distillates located in the damaged warehouses created Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix. The composition of this single malt is made of distilates matured in Oloroso sherry casks and Bourbon barreles. In this case, the distillery refrained from chill filtration and bottled it at 47.6% ABV. The age is not...
