The richly layered Glenfiddich 15 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky is innovatively matured in three types of oak cask: sherry, bourbon and new oak, before being married in our unique, handcrafted Oregon pine Solera vat. Year on year, this Solera vat is never emptied but is always kept at least half full creating a deliciously harmonious and intense whisky which gets more complex and intriguing every year.
This whisky distinguishes itself by the sweetness of its smell and taste, however, the sweetness is effortlessly balanced by drier oakiness. Michael Jackson sums up this fine drop by describing it as "Elegant and well-balanced to the point of suavity".
Michaels tasting notes are as follows:
Nose: Intriguingly complex aroma with sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits.
Palate: Silky smooth, revealing layers sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full bodied and bursting with flavour.
Finish: Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.
