Review: Glenfiddich 14 Years Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve

Share

glenfiddich 14Welcome to the latest addition to the Glenfiddich permanent lineup. Matured exclusively in bourbon casks for 14 years, it is finished in heavy charred new American oak barrels (finishing time unstated).

No question, this is classic, unsherried Glenfiddich through and through. Glen-fiddie loves to play with new oak here and there, and it does quite a number on this whisky, imbuing the nose with notes of ripe cherries, big vanilla caramels, and lots of scorched-wood barrel char influence.

Fans of American whiskey styles will find plenty to like here, as the Western flavors play nicely with the heady notes of malty grains, some toffee, and a bit more candied fruit. The finish has a touch of an incense character to it, with touches of twine.

All told: A classic, bourbon-barrel-heavy rendition of one of Speyside’s most classic single malts.

86 proof.
