Our original, signature single malt Scotch whisky has matured for at least 12 years in American and Spanish oak casks. A fragrant malt which is balances the fruitiness of pear with the richness of subtle oak.
Glenfiddich 15 is innovatively matured in three types of oak cask: sherry, bourbon and new oak, before being married in our unique, handcrafted Oregon pine Solera vat. Year on year, this Solera vat is never emptied but is always kept at least half full creating a deliciously harmonious and intense whisky which gets more complex and intriguing every year.
The resulting touch of sweetness from the Sherry wood is perfectly balanced by the oakiness drawn from the traditional casks, delivering a single malt Scotch whisky of brilliant character - smooth and full bodied.
Patiently matured for 21 years on‐site at the distillery, it is an exquisite, traditional Speyside whisky, rich and ripe with our Glenfiddich signature notes. But rather than bottle it, as other distillers would, our Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, hand picks selected barrels and adds a sublime finishing touch.
By finishing our 21 Year Old in Caribbean rum casks it awakens the liquid, rousing it with extra exotic notes of ginger, fig, lime and banana and a vibrant spicy toffee warmth, elevating it from something great to something extraordinary.
