Produced in small batches, Glenfiddich 18 Year Old combines a touch of sweetness from the Spanish Oloroso wood, with oakiness drawn from the traditional American casks. Through marrying in wooden tuns (vast vats), the rich, mellow flavours to come together, creating an exceptionally smooth single malt Scotch whisky with notes of spiced apple and robust oak. Each batch is of a unique and of exceptional quality.
Remarkably rich aroma with ripe orchard fruit, spiced apple and a robust oakiness.
Richly delivers luxurious dried fruit, candy peel and dates overlaid with elegant oak notes.
Warming. Rewarding. Distinguished.

Luxe and easy-sipping. Look for enticing notes of butterscotch, baked pear, cinnamon and clove on the nose and palate, swathed in just the right amount of smokiness.

Sunny amber hue. Offers a lavish nose of toffee and dried fruits. The palate is rich with savory sherry flavors, melted butter, caramel, sultana raisins, and dried cherries. There is a super long saline finish with notes of malt and smoke.
