Glenfiddich Ancient Reserve 18 Year

I’ve tried, for the first time this month, Glenfiddich Ancient Reserve 18 Year Old Scotch. This is a more expensive whisky, but I found the taste so intriguing, that I had to make it this months scotch of the month.

Glenfiddich 18 Year is matured in casks which have previously held Oloroso sherry and American bourbon at the Glenfiddich Distillery in the heart of the Highlands.

The taste is faintly sweet, scented with apple and wood. It is robust and full-bodied, yet remarkably soft, rounded and long lasting. This is a very smooth scotch. Comparatively I find that the older scotches have a less bold taste then those aged for fewer years.

As always, please enjoy this months scotch responsibly.
