Glenfiddich Whisky Solera Reserve 15 Year Old
After ageing it for 15 years in oak casks the whisky is then transferred into a 'solera' vatting system (similar to the way they make sherry) for further maturation. Not surprisingly there are sherry notes and a slight sweetness to the whisky, balanced by a drier oakiness.
Nose - Honey with hints of wood and vanilla, complex spice and fresh fruit.
Palate - Honey again, perfectly balanced by delicate spice and Glenfiddich maltiness.
Finish - Medium length, with sherry notes and spiciness.
