18yo

Glenfiddich

18 Year Old

OAK, BAKED APPLE, CINNAMON
ABV 40%, 70CL

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.

  • Married in small batches

    We marry our 18 Year Old in small batches of no more than 150 casks, so that our Malt Master can carefully control each element of its aroma and taste.

  • MATURING FLAVOUR

    Deep in our warehouses, each note of maturing whisky grows and develops over time inside our casks. The baked apple notes of our 18 Year Old were once notes of fresh pear, now mellowed and softened.

  • PROUD CHARACTER

    Our highly experienced coopers say that around 65% of a final whisky’s character comes from the wood it’s matured in. We’re one of the only distilleries with an onsite cooperage to tend to every one of our casks. Because we’re family run, it’s important to keep the things that matter close.
