Glenfiddich Select Cask Review

26th November 2013
Glenfiddich Select Cask has a lovely balance of delicate vanilla, barley sweetness, candied fruit and oak spice.

The Glenfiddich Select Cask is the first of three whiskies in the new travel retail exclusive Glenfiddich Cask Collection. It was matured in hand-selected aged Bourbon, European oak and red wine casks, then finished for at least 2 months in the innovative Select Cask Solera Vat which Glenfiddich have constructed in Warehouse 8 at the distillery in Dufftown to create this new expression.

The Glenfiddich Select Cask was bottled at 40% ABV, 1 litre bottle and will be available in global travel retail outlets from this month. RRP 40.00

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Mild apple, marmalade and sultanas mingles with light creamy vanilla toffee.

Taste: Very smooth, a delicate candied fruitiness, creamy toffee, some barley sweetness with just a wee touch of oak spice.

Finish: Fresh, candied fruit, toffee, mildly drying and slowly fading mild peppery oak spice.

Comment: This really has a lovely balance of delicate vanilla, barley sweetness, candied fruit and oak spice, almost like a Glenfiddich 12 with some added candied fruit. A very easy to drink, smooth delicate Glenfiddich, very much enjoyed this, I am sure this will become very popular, a charming dram.

SMW Score 86/100
