Glenfiddich 1963 Replica Release Single Malt
Inspired by the pioneering spirit of sandy grant Gordon, this historic expression is a recreation of the original Glenfiddich 1963 Replica Release straight malt that started the single malt category.
Our malt master, brian kinsman, recreated the original 1963 from our unrivaled collection of aged whiskies with the recipe uncovered from the Glenfiddich family archives.
While most whiskies today mature in oak, sherry casks were more prominent in 1963. The result, then and now, is a spirit contrasting many of our other expressions.
The aroma is floral with the hallmark Glenfiddich pear, followed by lively fruit notes, biscuity with a soft vanilla oakiness, and deliciously dry finish.
Inspired by the original Glenfiddich 1963 Replica Release, the expression with which Glenfiddich brought single malt to the world, this special edition is an exclusive addition to our Collection of single malt Scotch whiskies.
It was faithfully recreated by our Malt Master Brian Kinsman using our extensive archives and exclusive whisky sample collection.
Discover a true piece of our family-run Distillery’s heritage with this extraordinary whisky.
