Glenfiddich 12 year – 70cl is sweet and oily with a touch of oak and general fruit on the finish. The whisky is aged for 12 years in American and European Oak casks. The coopers ensure their whisky develops complex, elegantly rounded flavours with notes of fresh pear and subtle oak.
A single malt scotch whisky stored in a combination of both American & European oak casts. A 12 years old matured in American bourbon, Portuguese sherry and virgin oak. The whisky was then married in a Solera vat. This is a great staple 12 year old from the distillery. It is stored in these oak casks for 12 years which gives it a uniqueness in taste and elegance in blend. Great gift bottle idea. The term “single malt whiskey” refers to a whiskey that is produced by a single distillery using a single malted grain, which is typically barley. Single malts are most famous among Scotch , though they can be produced anywhere in the world. Ireland, Japan, America, Canada, and other countries produce great single malts as well.
We use fine Spanish Oloroso wood and American oak to mature this rich, intriguingly fruity and robust oak expression, but there are many more reasons why this expression is special.
Every batch is individually numbered and carefully watched over. Each has extraordinary consistency and character from an intense marrying period, and a warming, distinguished finish.
A truly exceptional single malt, the result not just of eighteen years of care and attention, but of whisky-making craft and knowledge passed down through the generations.
A rare and aged single malt Scotch whisky that has spent 12 long years carefully maturing in American Oak ex-bourbon casks. This expression was created to honour Glenfiddich’s line of continuous family ownership since William Grant founded our distillery in 1887. The rum-soaked cask infuses the aged whisky with a spicy warmth and indulgent vanilla and toffee sweetness, the character of the Caribbean shining through. This gives this whisky a sumptuous sweet intensity that is both rich and creamy yet still retains the unmistakable character of Glenfiddich 12 Years – 70cl
It has a vibrant yet soft and delicate expression, with a deep and complex balance of sweetness and dry oak tannin. Bound to excite the palate and awaken the nose.
