The Glenfiddich 14yo is a U.S. exclusive batch aged in bourbon barrels. The sweetness of the bourbon is definitely present on the nose, along with a foreshadowing of the vanilla to come.

A strong body with sturdy legs supports heavy notes of dark fruit, which get heavier with a drop of water. Mild caramel and telltale Glenfiddich grasses permeate, with a fully rounded overtone of honey.

A smooth whiskey, finishing with the hinted vanilla, now full, bold, and complete, Glenfiddich 14yo is wonderful as a digestif.
