Proof66 Notes

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." 

Glenfiddich Distillery Edition single malt scotch is bottled at a high 102 proof. According to press reports, it is aged for 15 years. It is aged in a combination of American and European oak as well as Spanish sherry casks. As of May, 2011, it is not acknowledged on their website.

Very good. I love any push to release spirits at a higher ABV. I must say however, that I like the 15 solera reserve better than this one.

4.25/5, more wine influence in this one towards the back. Tart apples for sure up front. The higher abv gives an impression of smokiness. I agree with consensus that fifteen is the best bang for your buck, def skip 18, 21 and 19 are both nice but giving the edge to 21. I like the description of superblend
