Glenfiddich 14 Bourbon Barrel Reserve


Thanks to /u/unbreakablesausage from reddit for the sample.

This is one I’ve wanted to try for some time. A few years back I got a a bottle of Glenfiddich 14 Rich Oak, aged in virgin oak casks. I thought it was a gimmicky bottle but ended up being my favourite standard release from the distillery. This one was released for the American market and was aged in first fill bourbon instead of virgin oak and I’ve been curious as to how it stacks up against the other 14 year old.

Glen Keith 1992 Alambic Classique Double Matured


1992 was a good year for Glen Keith, I’ve tried several bottlings distilled in that year and they have been spectacular and made me develop quite an affinity for the stuff. IT’s got a very strong body to it and is a fun whisky to try. Just about all of the Glen Keiths I’ve tried have been bourbon matured, it just works, but this one really piqued my curiosity, so when the opportunity  for a bottle share came along I grabbed it.
