Exemplifying the family’s tradition of innovation, this 15 Year Old expression is created using a technique pioneered by Glenfiddich's Malt Master and its warm, spicy flavours are transformed with the alchemy of the Solera Vat.
Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, the whisky is mellowed in their unique Solera Vat, a large oak tun inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal.
Never emptied, and kept half full of whiskies since 1998, this Solera Vat is the culmination of curious minds and the pioneering spirit of the family. It’s also the secret behind this whisky becoming the first 15 year old expression to enter the top ten best selling single malts.
Nose: An intriguingly complex aroma. Sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits.
Palate: Silky smooth, revealing layers of sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full-bodied and bursting with flavour.
Finish: Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.
