tasting notes

GLENFIDDICH the original

Colour

Rich Golden.

Nose

Fruity and floral with the hallmark Glenfiddich hint of pear. Subtle oak notes and a youthful, biscuity character.

Taste

Pleasantly sweet with lively fruit notes and a soft vanilla oakiness. Flavours develop with the addition of a little water to reveal delicate spices, citrus and fresh baked oatcakes.

Finish

Deliciously dry.

  • A true first

    This expression is inspired by our 'Straight Malt', the first ever single malt from any Scottish distillery to be actively marketed internationally, effectively creating the demand for single malt Scotch whisky as we know it today.

  • Carefully reconstructed

    Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich's Malt Master, has faithfully replicated the true taste of our family run Distillery's historic 'Straight Malt'. By skilfully nosing and tasting a perfectly preserved sample of the original 1963 expression and following the original recipe from our family's leather-bound ledgers, he has reproduced the celebrated fresh and fruity taste.

  • A PIONEERING HISTORY

    It was Sandy Grant Gordon (pictured, right) and Charles Grant Gordon who took the decision to export and actively market Glenfiddich Straight Malt worldwide. At a time when single malts were virtually unknown outside of the UK, Sandy and Charles took a chance on what they saw as a superior product, introducing ‘Straight Malt’ to the world.
