    This is the 6th vatting of Glenfiddich 40-year-old, and each vatting uses some whisky from the previous batch. That means there are traces of Glenfiddich from as far back as 1925 in each bottle. The heavy use of Oloroso sherry casks gives this a dark and intense nose with roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, and black cherries. The taste is spicy and intense with notes of espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, cinnamon and cloves. The finish is full of espresso, almonds, cocoa, and a hint of vanilla.

  2. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A very handsome packaging upgrade (very similar to the recent 50yo, in

    fact) for what is now, incredibly, Batch 6 of Glenfiddich 40yo. Bottled

    at a perfect tippling strength, this batch is restricted to just 600

    bottles.
