Aged for 26 years in American ex-Bourbon barrels, this rare single malt is only available in select markets and was created to honour Glenfiddich's unbroken family ownership dating back to William Grant's founding of the distillery in 1887. Complex, soft and floral with vanilla, oak, spice and anise notes. A whisky as remarkable as it is rare.
Tasting Note: Excellence is the first single malt from Glenfiddich to use Bourbon casks throughout the entire maturation process. According to Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman, 'By maturing this expression exclusively in Bourbon casks, we've created a beautifully intense flavour, reflective of the relentless passion we have for producing incredible single malts. With notes of lush vanilla, light oak and spice our 26 Year Old, while a new expression, remains true to Glenfiddich's heritage of producing fruity, floral and deeply flavoured whiskies'. The nose is fruity and spicy; pineapple, digestive biscuits and developing malt. Spicy fresh fruit, notably peaches and apples, then plain chocolate and tannins on the palate. The finish dries steadily, with aniseed and oak char. Score - 3 1/2 out of 5 Stars. (Gavin D. Smith & Tom Cannavan, whisky-pages.com, undated)
