Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Aged 14 years in former Bourbon barrels, this is an amber-colored whisky that’s scented with vanilla and peach. The palate is also peachy, highlighted by hints of almond, oak and sandalwood. The finish is drying and lightly spiced..Kara Newman, December/2015
Glenfiddich 14 Year Old uniquely delivers a bourbon heart with the soul of single malt. Matured for 14 years in ex-bourbon American Oak casks, the whisky delivers beautifully complex flavors of woody spices combined with ripe summer fruit, resulting from the spirit’s interaction with the casks. After waiting patiently for 14 years, Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, finishes the whisky in deep charred new American Oak barrels supplied by The Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky. The result: a rich, sweet and vibrant single malt.American Oak casks have had a significant influence on single malt Scotch whisky maturation and the flavor profiles we find today. By maturing this expression in bourbon casks we’ve created a beautifully intense flavor, reflective of the relentless passion we have for producing incredible single malts. With notes of fresh oak and velvety caramel, our 14 Year Old remains true to Glenfiddich’s heritage of producing fruity and deeply flavored whiskies and is the perfect marriage of bourbon sweetness and Scotch complexity.
