Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve

Married in a handcrafted oak Solera Vat, our Glenfiddich 15
Year Old Solera Reserve carries the discernible flavors of
Spanish sherry and American bourbon casks. Before entering
the Solera Vat our whisky is precisely matured in three types of
oak casks: sherry, bourbon, and new oak. This ensures that the
whisky takes in just the right amount of virgin flavour from new
American oak, before the mellowing process. If your father is a
bold character, pair him with a whisky that will expand his
horizon and match his spice. The Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve is considered our spiciest variant
and is well­suited for those who enjoy spiced spirits, like rum or bourbon.

Married in a handcrafted oak Solera Vat, our Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve is the only 15 year old whisky in the list of top 10 best selling whiskies. Glenfiddich 15 Year Old is precisely matured in three types of oak casks: sherry, bourbon, and new oak, before it enters our unique Solera Vat which has never been emptied below half. Containing whisky that was originally distilled in 1983, the Solera Vat creates incredible consistency and depth of flavor to produce a whisky that drinks older than its years.

21 Year Old Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish

Our remarkable Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish is one of our most unique variants.

For 21 years, the whisky is patiently matured at our distillery in Scotland in American Oak casks becoming a traditional Speyside whisky, rich and ripe with our Glenfiddich signature notes. That exquisite whisky then spends up to six months finishing in casks that we infuse with a custom blend of Gran Reserva rum from 3 Caribbean islands. This instills tropical notes of ginger, fig, lime and banana with a vibrant toffee warmth into our whisky. This pioneering process is a result of generations worth of knowledge, passed down through our family since 1887. For a well traveled man, give him a taste of the Caribbean Islands with a dram of our 21 Year Old Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish.

Colour: Dark gold.

Nose: Intense and vanilla sweet. Floral, hints of banana, figs, rich toffee, new leather and oak.

Taste: Initially soft, then brisk, vibrant and drying, peppery, a touch of smoke, oak, lime, ginger and spices.

Finish: Very long, warming, dry and spicy.
