Proof66 Notes

The Glenfiddich 14yr Bourbon Barrel Reserve was first released in 2015 that they claim has the "heart" of bourbon but the "soul" of single malt whisky. The Bourbon Barrel Reserve part come from the finish, which is not done in ex-bourbon barrels (the common aging technique for scotch) but rather in heavily charred new American oak (or virigin oak) barrels: precisely the same barrels used for bourbon and carrying the signature bourbon oak-char flavor. They suggest looking for notes of toffee, orange peel, and caramelized sugar among others.

Glenfiddich Distillery was built with the "bare hands" of William Grant and his nine (nine!) sons in 1886. The distillery is independently owned by William Grant & Sons who also own the labels for Balvenie, Grant's blended scotch, Hendrick's Gin, and are also co-owners of the Highland Brands, which include The Famous Grouse, The Macallan, Highland Park, Black Bottle, and Gloag's London Dry. Today, Glenfiddich is the best-selling brand of single-malt scotch in the world. Glenfiddich is pronounced with a hard "-ck-" sound at the end like the "ick" in "icky." The word is translated from Gaelic as "valley of the deer."
