Glenfiddich 18 Year Old

Glenfiddich 18 Christmas Whisky

With baked apples, vanilla and sultanas on the nose, Glenfiddich 18 Year Old certainly evokes a sense of Christmas on smell alone. On the palate, the apples and vanilla give way to candied orange peel and cinnamon, with a hint of hazelnut creeping through. This single malt Scotch whisky is probably the easiest to find, appearing on the shelves of most large supermarkets and specialist drinks stores. At £40 a bottle, it delivers excellent value for money as well.

    I think if Balblair and Glenfiddich are in there Glenrothes deserves a mention. Not so widely known but growing and the Select Reserve makes a great go-to whisky for beginners and connoisseurs alike. Or for something REALLY special grab a 1988 – great post dinner dram and vintages are perfect for the wine lovers out there to understand.

    One of my favourites for the holidays is Redbreast Single Pot Still 12 Years Old with Christmas cake spices coming through. Very accesible for beginners being triple distilled as well as around £40 so nice gifting – and make sure you get one for yourself too 😉

    I intorduced Woodford Reserve Double Oak distilled Whiskey at my Holiday party on Saturday. It was a major hit with our guest. Not only did they know they were drinking something special, they knew it was a premium priced whiskey and a nice treat for the holidays. The flavors and complexity of the Woodford Reserve Double Oak Whiskey gives it a full rich and buttery taste with fruit notes. I have never been a whiskey drinker but I truly love Woodford Reserve.
