Glenfiddich Reserve Cask Review

26th November 2013
The Glenfiddich Reserve Cask is deliciously smooth, sweet and spicier with each mouthful.

The Glenfiddich Reserve Cask is the second of three whiskies in the new travel retail exclusive Glenfiddich Cask Collection. It was matured in distinctive Spanish sherry casks, then finished for at least 2 months in the Reserve Cask Solera Vat which Glenfiddich have constructed in Warehouse 8 at the distillery in Dufftown to create this new expression.

The Glenfiddich Reserve Cask was bottled at 40% ABV, 1 litre bottle and will be available in global travel retail outlets from this month. RRP 50.00

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A deliciously inviting nose, full of subtleties, some sweet baked apple pie, mandarin orange, raisins, touch of ginger, oak spice.

Taste: The subtle sweetness balances well with the oak spice. Citrusy, chocolate raisin, vanilla fudge, sugared almond, touch of ginger and cinnamon.

Finish: Deliciously long, slowly mildly drying. Sweet, spicy, zesty orange, nutty a touch of cinnamon, coffee and vanilla.

Comment: Deliciously smooth, sweet and spicier with each mouthful. A lovely lingering finish.

SMW Score 87/100
