Review by Glenfiddich

« This review is also available in Dutch »
Colour

Golden, a red hue

Nose

An intriguingly complex aroma. Sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits.

Palate

Silky smooth, revealing layers of sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full-bodied and bursting with flavour.

Finish

Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.

Note

Exemplifying our familys tradition of innovation, our 15 Year Old expression is created using a technique pioneered by our Malt Master and its warm, spicy flavours are transformed with the alchemy of the Solera Vat.

Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, the whisky is mellowed in our unique Solera Vat, a large oak tun inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal.

Never emptied, and kept half full of whiskies since 1998, our Solera Vat is the culmination of curious minds and the pioneering spirit of our family. Its also the secret behind this whisky becoming the first 15 year old expression to enter the top ten best selling single malts.
