Ragtime Rye Double Oak Cask Strength WhiskeyJune 30, 2020
Glenfiddich Reserve Cask Single MaltJuly 1, 2020
From the Travel Retail Cask Collection range by Glenfiddich distillery, this is the Select Cask expression. A non age stated (NAS) single malt whisky from the Speyside region.
Glenfiddich Select Cask is a marriage of whiskies matured in European oak (sherry?), bourbon and red wine casks. Casks have been selected by malt master Brian Kinsman, then married in Glenfiddich’s Solera system.
So this expression reminds me a bit about their 15 year old single malt which is a marriage of two different casks (sherry and new oak) in Solera vat. Select Cask is only younger and made using slightly different casks.
“Most awarded single malt Scotch”
Says Glenfiddich. But I’m still not a fan. I started my Glenfiddich experimenting with their age stated whiskies such as the 12 and 15 year old. And didn’t like them.
So it was evident I would not fall in love with their NAS expressions. Overall a decent dram but I wouldn’t suggest filling your whisky tasting glass with this single malt, if you have other options.
