Glenfiddich 18 Years Old

Glenfiddich 18 Years Old

What they say

This luxurious, delicately crafted and full-bodied single malt is produced in small batches. 

Our specialist on-site coopers personally look after every precious cask we use for this outstanding 18 year old single malt throughout its long maturation, ensuring the oak is in the best condition to imbue the whisky with its notes of baked apple, cinnamon and robust oak. 

Married for at least three months in small, individually numbered batches in wooden tuns, the Glenfiddich 18 Year Old has a unique depth and complexity that has been acclaimed in the industry.

Great for experiencing classic rich Glenfiddich whisky with luxurious dried fruit, candy peel and date flavours overlaid with elegant oak notes.

  • Married in small batches of no more than 150 casks
