Glenfiddich 1974 Rare Collection 36 Year Old Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Specially selected by Glenfiddich Brand Ambassadors from around the world in 2011, this is the first ever vatted vintage of Glenfiddich.
Just 1,000 numbered bottles of this exceptional expression have been released.
Nose: 1974 Glenfiddich Vintage Reserve is rich and oaky with vibrant vanilla sweetness and an intriguing hint of polished leather and liquorice. With the addition of a little water there is a burst of fresh fruit and spice - orange marmalade, ripe berries, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramelised pear.
Palate: Initially very sweet with a vanilla toffee character; the oak tannin develops with time giving a pleasing, oily texture and a slightly drier flavour. With water, it becomes velvety soft and mellow with beautiful layers of fruit, spice, oak and the merest hint of smoke.
Finish: Very long lasting with lingering oak.
