Glenfiddich Excellence 26 Year-Old

Single Malt Scotch Whisky

 Glenfiddich 26 Year Old

Awakening After 26 Years

A rare and aged single malt Scotch whisky that has spent 26 long years carefully maturing in American Oak ex-bourbon casks. This expression was created to honor Glenfiddich’s line of continuous family ownership since William Grant founded our distillery in 1887.

The Long Road

Each hand-made cask spends 26 years breathing in pure Highland air through the uniquely porous grain of 70 year old American “Quercus Alba” oak. Renowned for its exceptional quality, the wood softens the spirit and imparts layers of subtle spice and sweet vanilla flavors that grow more complex over time.

Unleashing the Oak

After their staves are assembled, each cask is toasted over an open fire. Toasting enables the vanillins and the tannins in the wood to be released, giving the contents flavor and color. A light toasting imparts subtle flavors while a heavily toasted cask delivers strong and powerful flavors, as well as a darker color single malt.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Soft and delicate with a beautiful floral character. Spring blossom, violets, sweet peas and a subtle green leafiness.

Taste: Vibrant with a compelling balance of dry tannin and soft brown sugar vanilla sweetness. A deep oak flavor gradually builds, with hints of spice and liquorice shining through.

Finish: Deep and complex.

 

Cheers,
