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 virgin oak) barrels: precisely the same barrels used for bourbon and carrying the signature bourbon oak-char flavor.

Banana bread on the nose, but I fail to discern the "bourbon" character described on their website. Nevertheless, a great marriage of scotch with American oak from Kentucky. The result is a very tasty scotch that fails the five stars only because it's not "smooth" enough to warrant the fifth. For those of you who enjoy a Speyside character with a twist, this could be right up your alley.
