Glenfiddich is the world’s largest maker of Scotch whisky. What makes this family-owned company stand out from the rest is the subtlety and complexity of its flavours.
Although Scotch whisky is popular all over the world, the younger, cocktail-drinking crowd is still reluctant to try it. “And yet, Scotch is perfect for every occasion. As an aperitif, digestive and even with a meal, along with some smoky charcuterie,” suggests Ian Millar, the brand’s global ambassador.
He suggests that if you are new to Scotch, you should try one that is younger and “simpler” since you will not be able to appreciate the complexity of older Scotches.
After letting it aerate and warm in the palm of your hand, Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Highland Scotch Single Malt ($74.25) gives off hints of butterscotch, butter and crème brûlée. A delicate aroma and a subtle palate, developing hints of different spices.
Glenfiddich 18 Year Old Highland Scotch Single Malt ($110.25) is even more subtle, giving off smooth hints of slightly burnt maple butter, banana leaf, fine herbs and tobacco. “I suggest adding two drop of water for balance. But never three,” says Ian Millar.
