Glenfiddich 14 Year Old Rich Oak
A pioneering whisky matured for 14 years, Glenfiddich Rich Oak was the first American and European oak finished whisky in the world and honours the Glenfiddich distillery’s long history of wood mastery.
On the nose, complex fresh fruits and spices emerge, followed by vibrant vanilla and rich dried fruit. The palate is filled with rich and sweet vanilla, a silky texture and elegant hints of fruit. These get deeper and richer with time as a subtle nuttiness develops. The finish is full, smooth and spicy.
The Glenfiddich Distillery was founded in Dufftown by William Grant in 1866. Built in the glen of the river Fiddich, the first Glenfiddich single malt ran from the stills on Christmas day in 1887.
A long family tradition followed through the generations, with Glenfiddich one of the few distilleries in Scotland to increase production during the era of prohibition in the USA.
During the tough economic times of the 60’s and 70’s, Glenfiddich and its famous triangular bottle was instrumental in marketing “Single Malt” as the premium Scotch offering, leading to the establishment of the Single Malt category we know today.
Glenfiddich remains to this day a family run business, with current management the 5th generation descendants of Mr William Grant himself.
