Glenfiddich Select Cask
The Glenfiddich Select Cask is one of three new whiskies in Glenfiddich’s Cask Collection, released for travel retail. It has no age statement and it’s matured in bourbon, European oak and red wine cask before it’s bottled at 40% ABV.
Sweet with plenty of vanilla and wood spice.
Some sweet citrus together with the vanilla and rich spices.
Quite short, but very fresh with sweet citrus and vanilla.
I think this is like a standard expression from Glenfiddich that’s easy to drink and fits everybody. It doesn’t delivers any kind of ‘wow’ experience that I was hoping for, but delivered a good dram at least. I guess it would be awesome if we could see this at 46% ABV and without chill-filtration.
