Glenfiddich Rich Oak is a completely unique single malt, delicately finished for up to 12 weeks in brand new American and new Spanish oak casks after being patiently matured for 14 years.
Our use of untouched Spanish oak casks is a first for the single malt Scotch whisky. Alive with flavour, these new casks need precision handling by our Malt Master to deliver just the right amount of extra flavours; creamy vanilla, a soft toffee sweetness and spicy oak with layers of ripe summer fruit, creating a rich and complex single malt.
Colour: Rich golden
Aroma: A complex harmony of fresh fruits and spices. Initial spicy oak notes followed by vibrant vanilla and rich dried fruit. Hints of freshly sawn wood and dried fruits, raisins and apricots. With time, some softer toffee notes appear, alongside caramelised pear and gentle fragrant floral aromas.
Palate: Rich and sweet vanilla with a silky texture and elegant hints of fruit. Mouth tingling and spicy on first tasting. The flavour becomes deeper and richer with time and has a subtle nutty character.
Finish: Lingers for a long time with warming, spicy oak notes.
