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

Glenfiddich 12 Years Old (40%, OB, 2012)

For a standard expression and at this price point I would be more than happy to buy the Glenfiddich 12 year Old – simply what is their not to like about this single malt? However it has a few older brothers – two of which are simply spectacular; the 14 year old Rich oak and 15 year old Solera. If you find either of these on offer it is not a hard decision to pick the older expressions, if not get the 12 it is damn good anyway! 82/100
