Glenfiddich

15 Year Old

WARM SPICE, HONEY, RICH FRUIT
ABV 40%, 70CL

Exemplifying our family’s tradition of innovation, our 15 Year Old expression is created using a technique pioneered by our 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 our 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, our Solera Vat is the culmination of curious minds and the pioneering spirit of our 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.

tasting notes

GLENFIDDICH 15 year old 

Colour

Golden, a red hue.

Nose

An intriguingly complex aroma. Sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits.

Taste

Silky smooth, revealing layers of sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full-bodied and bursting with flavour.

Finish

Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.

  • CREATIVITY IN OUR VEINS

    We are one of the oldest family-owned distilleries in the world, with a pioneering spirit passed down through generations. This spirit allows us to be curious, creating new, maverick ways of developing whisky, like our Solera Vat, where our 15 Year Old gets its excellent depth of flavour.

  • OUR SOLERA VAT

    Inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal, our Solera Vat is handcrafted from oak and has been kept at least half full since 1998. Our 15 Year Old is mellowed here, gathering full intensity inside this large oak tun.

  • FLAVOUR UNRAVELS

    European oak sherry and American oak casks imbue our whisky with aromas and flavours. It is then harmonised by the magic of our Solera Vat process, adding complex layers of warm spice, honey and rich fruit flavours.
