Glenfiddich 15 Year Old

Glenfiddich

15 Year Old

WARM SPICE, HONEY, RICH FRUIT
ABV 40%, 70CL

Our 15 Year Old expression is a truly special single malt that exemplifies our family’s tradition of innovation. Its warm, spicy flavours are created using a technique pioneered by our fifth Malt Master, David Stewart, and continued to this day.

Aged in European, American, and New American oak to carefully release the virgin cask flavours, the whisky is then mellowed in our unique Solera vat before being married in Portuguese oak tuns.

Bursting with flavour, the first 15 Year Old to enter the top ten best selling single malts in the world is a personal favourite of many of us here at the Distillery, and once you’ve tried it, it’s easy to see why.

tasting notes

GLENFIDDICH 15 year old 

Colour

Golden, a red hue.

Nose

An intriguingly complex aroma. Sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits.

Taste

Silky smooth, revealing layers of sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full-bodied and bursting with flavour.

Finish

Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.

  • CREATIVITY IN OUR VEINS

    We are one of the oldest family-owned distilleries in the world, with a pioneering spirit passed down through generations. This spirit allows us to be curious, creating new, maverick ways of developing whisky, like our Solera Vat, where our 15 Year Old gets its excellent depth of flavour.

  • OUR SOLERA VAT

    Inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal, our Solera Vat is handcrafted from oak and has been kept at least half full since 1998. Our 15 Year Old is mellowed here, gathering full intensity inside this large oak tun.

  • FLAVOUR UNRAVELS

    European oak sherry and American oak casks imbue our whisky with aromas and flavours. It is then harmonised by the magic of our Solera Vat process, adding complex layers of warm spice, honey and rich fruit flavours.
