Glenfiddich 30 Year Old Rare Collection Cask No. 20050 whisky review: A fantastically aged Glenfiddich, the masses of dried fruits and tannic and leathery rancio notes of wood and tobacco had me, possibly along with the colour, convinced this may have seen sherry wood during its maturation? They state officially american oak which doesn’t preclude sherry per se but now I’m wondering if this is just a combination of Glenfiddich’s spirit and a long maturation in ex-bourbon casks? Regardless this is a supreme whisky well worthy of inclusion in the rare cask collection and a delightful celebration of Glenfiddich’s 50 years open to the public! 93/100

Glenfiddich 12 Years Old (40%, OB, 2017)

Glenfiddich 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review: A classic expression from Glenfiddich with a huge hit of fruity and fresh pears on the nose that travels throughout this whisky. Expertly constructed using American and Sherry oak casks. I love the slightly drying nature in the finish making me want to revisit the freshness on the nose again. 83/100

Glenfiddich 19 Years Old Age Of Discovery Bourbon Cask (40%, OB, 2015)

A reasonably enjoyable and simple Bourbon-cask matured Glenfiddich, worthy of inclusion into their 19 year old Age of Discovery series, sits nicely as a comparator for the Madeira Cask and Red Wine Cask expressions. A nice example of how ex-bourbon cask maturation can work really well in older expressions, a good balance between cask and spirit characters in here too. 87/100
