Glenfiddich 15 Solera Reserve Single Malt Scotch 750ml
A 15 year old matured in American bourbon, Portuguese sherry, and virgin oak. The whisky was then married in a Solera vat. This is a great staple 15 year old from the Glenfiddich distillery.
Immensely popular Glenfiddich variant. Using a Solera system common in the maturation of quality sherry, 15yo malt from three different types of casks is married together in a wooden vat, which is constantly topped up to ensure the quality is maintained.
This superb single malt Scotch is uniquely aged in European, American, and New American oak, the last of which imparts the whisky with its unique, virgin-cask flavors of warm spice, honey, and rich fruit. After 15 years of maturation, the whisky is mellowed in Glenfiddich’s first-of-its-kind Solera Vat, giving the single malt its richness and depth.
Exemplifying our family’s tradition of innovation, Glenfiddich 15 Solera reserve expression is created using a technique pioneered by our Malt Master, and its warm, spicy flavors are transformed with the alchemy of the Solera Vat.
Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, the whisky is mellowed in our unique Solera Vat, a large oak tun inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal.
Never emptied, and kept half full of whiskies since 1998, our Solera Vat is the culmination of curious minds and the pioneering spirit of our family. It’s also the secret behind this whisky becoming the first 15 year old expression to enter the top ten best selling single malts.
