Glenfiddich 18 Year Old has a remarkably rich aroma with ripe orchard fruit, spiced apple and a robust oakiness. On the palate it richly delivers luxurious dried fruit, candy peel and dates overlaid with elegant oak notes. The finish is warming, rewarding and distinguished.
Background: Produced in small batches, Glenfiddich 18 Year Old combines a touch of sweetness from the Spanish Oloroso wood, with oakiness drawn from the traditional American casks. Through marrying in wooden tuns (vast vats), the rich, mellow flavours to come together, creating an exceptionally smooth single malt Scotch whisky with notes of spiced apple and robust oak. Each batch is of a unique and of exceptional quality.
