tasting notes

GLENFIDDICH Vintage Reserve 1978

Colour

Gold autumn straw.

Nose

Beautifully balanced with our hallmark pear and fruity notes. Summer grass, hints of orange marmalade, green bananas, thyme and bay leaf. Delicate toffee and oak notes shine through.

Taste

Velvety smooth. Rich vanilla oak notes are punctuated by vibrant fruitiness. A little water accentuates fruity citrus and red summer berries. Over time a carefully balanced spiciness emerges.

Finish

Long and rich, our signature fruity character lingers on the palate.

  • IMPERCEPTIBLE CHARACTER

    On 25th September 1978 our four American Hogshead casks were all filled within minutes of each other. Yet during maturation the oak’s innate qualities imbued each with its own very unique character. Time revealed that cask 28152 had something imperceptibly special.
