Glenfiddich 30 Yearls Old 70cl 43°
This magnificent Speyside Single Malt is the result of a marriage of whiskies aged at least 30 years old that have matured at 45% in Oloroso Sherry casks and 55% in American bourbon casks.
With this extended maturation, Glenfiddich whiskey has acquired a rare complexity and subtle and fruity aromas. The richness of its aromatic palette is inimitable. It is an exceptional malt with a strong and sublime character.
Golden in colour with copper highlights, the delicate nose predominantly woody and fruity (apple, pear, quince) becomes more creamy (vanilla, caramel) with aeration. The attack on the palate is round, rich dry and finely woody. Subtle notes of Sherry and figs blend with the rich aromas of dark chocolate. The long finish reveals hints of hazelnut and liquorice.

The steep-sided valley where the Fiddich River flows, gave its name to the best-selling malt in the world.
The distillery is located on the banks of the river in Dufftown. Fiddich translates as “stag” from Gaelic and here’s why the animal is now the emblem of the distillery. This famous distillery has been established in 1886 and is still in the hands of the same family (as a limited company). In 1963, the company bet on spreading the Single Malt outside the borders of Scotland – which was considered as pure folly by blended scotch producers, deeming Single Malts as too intense, too richly aromatic or too complex for non-Scots drinkers. Glenfiddich remained traditional and is still heating its small stills with coal and ageing spirit in casks. The whiskies, aged in different woods, are blended in the Glenfiddich cellars, and bottled “at the chateau”! In fact, the distillery overlooks the complete bottling process. Glenfiddich is proud to own the most rewarded Single malt whisky range in the world.
