The first whisky of this age released by the Glenfiddich distillery, Excellence 26 Year Old is a very special release that was matured exclusively in American oak bourbon barrels for notes of vanilla and spice alongside classic Glenfiddich notes and a vein of oak running right through the middle.
Nose: Soft and delicate with a beautiful floral character. Spring blossom, violets, sweet peas and a subtle green leafiness
Palate: Vibrant with a compelling balance of dry tannin and soft brown sugar vanilla sweetness. A deep oak flavour gradually builds, with hints of spice and liquorice shining through
Finish: Sweet with a lingering spiciness
