I bought this on a whim, delighted to see that Glenfiddich had a non chill-filtered offering and was far from disappointed. Definitely one to add to the shelf and hold in reserve as a treat.

Aroma: Bold citrus, marzipan and vanilla

More than just a cask strength non-chill filtered variation on the already fantastic 15 Year Old Solera expression the Distillery Edition is a unique and impressive variation to the Glenfiddich range. Despite coming in at around £10 more than the core offering this offering is absolutely one you should explore.

Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Distillery Edition Tasting Notes

This is a specially created expression using some of our oldest techniques and traditions at the distillery, after distillation in our unusual stills the whisky is filled into American and Spanish oak casks for at least 15 years, the whisky is then married to give a consistently high quality and smooth taste.

We also bottle this edition at a higher alcohol by volume 51% in fact which gives a really unique taste. Lets see where it takes us. So the aromas are really floral, quite creamy, just a touch of freshly ground black pepper and spiciness. It’s quite strong at 51%, I would say we need to add a few drops of water.

Now some of those soft fruits are coming through, a little bit of vanilla oakiness, try the taste. Again very soft and fruity, just incredibly smooth.
