Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is one of the product lines of the popular Glenfiddich brand, which is the best-selling single malt Scotch whisky in the world. Glenfiddich is usually associated with the “Special Reserve” 12 Year Old variant and the “Solera Reserve” 15 Year Old single malt is a less common and more premium Scotch whisky from their product line.
The Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 Year Old single malt comes in the distinctive Glenfiddich tube box that opens on one end and the unique triangle shaped bottle. The Solera Reserve bottle is amber instead of the green tinted bottle seen in the 12 year old Special Reserve. The differences are not merely cosmetic though, the more mature 15 year old Solera Reserve has more complex notes compared to Glenfiddich 12 year old Special Reserve.
Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve is a Speyside single malt produced from three types of casks – traditional American bourbon, Spanish sherry and new oak. It is mixed in a large Solera vat, made of Oregon pine and the beautifully balanced single malt is left to settle in a small Solera tun before bottling. Interesting…I just grabbed that from the Glenfiddich liner notes. 😉
The Glenfiddich Solera Reserve has a more complex taste compared to the 12 Year Old Special Reserve, with a smoother and deeper flavor that reveals fruit, spice and a touch of oak. It has a long and lingering aftertaste, and is great to drink neat or with some ice. It’s a bit of a sacrilege to use mixers in single malt Scotch whiskies. Expect the Glenfiddich Solera Reserve to set you back about RM 400.
Glenfiddich has a wide range of single malt Scotch whisky from Special Reserve 12 Year Old, Solera Reserve 15 Year Old, Ancient Reserve 18 Year Old, Gran Reserva 21 Year Old, to the prestigious Glenfiddich 30 year old. I highly recommend the Solera Reserve 15 Year Old for the best price/performance ratio. 🙂]]>
