Glenfiddich releases a new expression to its permanent portfolio: Glenfiddich 14 Year Old. Exclusive to the United States, the bourbon barrel reserve is a celebration of American spirit. It pays tribute to the shared history of American and Scotch whisk(e)y, and the American Oak ex-bourbon barrels that are the backbone of the single malt Scotch whisky industry. Glenfiddich 14 Year Old uniquely delivers a bourbon heart with the soul of single malt. Matured for 14 years in ex-bourbon American Oak casks, the whisky delivers beautifully complex flavors of woody spices combined with ripe summer fruit, resulting from the spirit’s interaction with the casks.
After waiting patiently for 14 years, Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, finishes the whisky in deep charred new American Oak barrels supplied by The Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky. The result: a rich, sweet and vibrant single malt.
Glenfiddich 14 Year Old is presented in a deep navy blue casing – inspired by the color of the Kentucky state flag – and is embossed with Glenfiddich’s iconic gold stag. It will be available nationally this fall at luxury whisky retail stores and premium bars and hotels in the United States, priced at $49.99 for 750ml.
