Review by Glenfiddich


A rich, vibrant aroma with an abundance of fresh fruits and vanilla toffee.


Exceptionally rich and sweet with a velvety texture. Deep oak notes develop with time accompanied with a delicate nutty character and some subtle cinnamon and woody spice notes.


Beautifully mellow and sweet.


To celebrate the achievements and pioneering spirit of our founder, William Grant, Glenfiddich launched its Cask of Dreams program in the United States in 2011. Whisky lovers across the States were given a rare opportunity to participate in the “finishing” of this exclusive expression of Glenfiddich. Special oak casks took a tour of significant US landmarks and those in attendance shared their personal aspirations by writing them directly on the precious wood. These celebrated casks have returned to Scotland to finish this unique Cask of Dreams Limited Edition Release.

To create this rare expression, our esteemed Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, marries Glenfiddich whiskies taken from a hand-picked selection of American oak casks, which have matured for at least 14 years. They are then decanted into the dream-inscribed casks and left to finish peacefully in these virgin American oak casks for 3 months to bring an intense and powerful vanilla sweetness with a perfect balance of oak and spice. The casks are then introduced into marrying tuns and mellowed to perfection prior to bottling.

Glenfiddich Cask of Dreams Limited Edition Release will be available in a very limited quantity of 3,500 bottles at select retailers in the United States starting in February, 2012.
