Glenfiddich

Age Of Discovery
Bourbon Cask

CRUNCHY TOFFEE WITH
SPICY HINTS OF CARDAMOM 
ABV 40%, 70CL

The Great American Rivers once transported fine oak casks filled with American bourbon towards New Orleans. Bourbon casks could only be used once, their aromas and flavours released quickly, without being exhausted by long maturation. Excellent for ageing single malt Scotch.

Our second release in the Age of Discovery collection and a first for us, Bourbon Cask Reserve is inspired by that history. It is our only expression exclusively matured in American bourbon casks, for 19 years. Creating a refined balance of spicy sweetness and rich dried fruit flavours.

One-of-a-kind and available in selected duty free outlets.

GLENFIDDICH Age Of Discovery
Bourbon Cask Finish

Colour

Autumn barley fields.

Nose

Warm, crunchy toffee and deep citrus notes. Marmalade on toast with fine orange liqueur balanced by dry, almost smoky oak tannin.

Taste

Intriguing layers of light tannin, underpinned by rich notes of vanilla pod, fine leather and Havana tobacco. Develops into a sweet, velvety mouth-feel with spicy hints of cardamom and nutmeg.

Finish

Warm, delightful long finish.

  • TRADE ROUTES TO WHISKY

    The Age Of Discovery was a time when cities were expanding. American whisky distilleries were producing more – Tennesee sour mash, bourbon and rye whiskies. Precious bourbon barrels were carried along the Mississippi river on paddle steamers, towards the bustling port of New Orleans. Laying the foundations of our long history maturing whiskies in American oak casks.

  • UNIQUELY, BOURBON CASKS

    Our Age Of Discovery Bourbon Cask Reserve is our only expression to have spent all its life maturing only in bourbon casks.

  • PRIMED CASKS

    Only used once by bourbon producers, American bourbon casks impart aroma and flavour quickly. Yet their qualities last longer, having spent a comparatively brief time ageing the fine bourbon.
