Whisky or Whiskey

Insider knowledge: Glenfiddich Rich Oak whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Glenfiddich Rich Oak whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

Glenfiddich Rich Oak Bottling Note

A recent release edition from Glenfiddich, this was aged for 14 years before a finish in new American and Spanish oak casks. They say the American oak adds spice, vanilla and fruit, and the Spanish oak brings elegant fruit, spice and complexity.

User Reviews of the Glenfiddich Rich Oak

Taste gets better

From it completely different taste a more of a bourbon taste then a normal glenfiddich but still very nice in the evening whilst relaxing

23rd June 2014

Worths a try

I really don't know as much as any of you so read my review at your own risk. Its a good whisky no argue there but on the other hand it tastes like more of a bourbon (or perhaps even, regular jack with a more complex taste?). Too smooth for a scotch. I remember i had a similar(but not the same) issue with glenfiddich's 18 year old but i can't put a finger on it right now. All in all good bottle of drink for change but i will stick with my 15 year solera.

OK, but not great

Firstly, I am by no means a connoisseur. I Picked this up recently at a local supermarket after reading some decent reviews. I absolutely love the Glenfiddich 15-year Solera, but this has left me wondering if I've somehow got a dud bottle, because it doesn't necessarily match the hype. I love the 15 because of its quaffableness and very acidity and afterburn, but the 14 has a distinct "kick" to it, which doesn't sit well with my still-evolving palate. Don't get me wrong, in terms of tasting, it's still a very accomplished whisky; it has a lot of depth and complexity, and has all the characteristics of a Glenfiddich, but it's just too harsh for me. Bottom line: If you want a top Glenfiddich, get the 15-year Solera. It may be more expensive, but it's worth it in my opinion.

Awesome

As title suggests Mmmmmm

Sophisticated

Interesting nose, very smooth on the palate but light on the after taste - subtle leather and spice. I think this will be good in company but a bit boring for indulging on one's own. Perhaps my older palate and taste for chilli dishes has dulled my appreciation of the gentle and sophisticated. I like more of a kick. Should appeal to younger and possibly female tastes.

need another bottle

cos this one isn't going to last long, i love the oak.

15th January 2014

great taste

everything about this drink is fab. love it.

15th January 2014

Excellent

Beautiful, a lovely nose and a honey and rasin finish

The nicest of their 'standard' range, IMO

Having tried Glenfiddich's 12, 15 and 18 year old whiskys, and not liking any of them enough to wish buying a bottle for myself, I was pleasantly surprised when I found their 14 yr rich oak really appealed to my taste buds...I really enjoyed it and will definitely be adding a bottle to my collection!

30th December 2013

Very nice indeed

Although I'd agree with the few that say something is missing here, it's good stuff but it's just 1 fry short of a happy meal. Got this quite cheap in the supermarket so as an experiment I'm sticking it into a master of malt 1L cask for a bit. See if I can bring that extra little something to it. The cask has already been used a few times so should be kind and gentle to this otherwise good whisky. All that said it's quite different to your usual Glenfiddich range so I'd still recommend trying it.

easy drinking

I bought this in a supermarket today as it was on offer. Its very mellow and the vanilla really comes through. Even my mrs liked it and she doesnt really like whisky. I drink whisky sparingly as its expensive but feel this may dissapear quite quickly. Much nicer than the standard 12 year old. I bought an 18 year old special reserve a few christmases ago and for me no other glenfiddich has come close (within affordable price range of course) and as that one is no longer available I think ive found a new favourite!!! And yes. I do only buy glenfiddich. I drink many whiskys at bars or at friends/families houses. Some are very nice. But I like glenfiddich. I know what im getting.

Watery or Dry

The comment by Sued Buster shows a lack of understanding of what dry means. It means on the opposite end of the spectrum compared to sweet. So something can be dry and watery or sweet and watery (albeit in that case not very sweet, but definitely not dry). Go back to kindergarten indeed....

Great stuff'!!

Something missing

it's pleasant enough, and if you like the smell of freshly sawn oak it's one for you, but I agree with the 'Something doesn't quite click' post above. this whisky is what id call above adequate but not top notch. IMHO the 18yo is the best in the Glenfiddich range (that ive tried so far) so would recommend that instead of this expression or the solera

29th May 2013

ah

a glenfiddich with character

4th April 2013

Birthday Delight

My love of Single Malts influenced my dear friend to treat me to this lucious sweet delicate Glenfiddich for my birthday Sheer Delight Cheers !

23rd February 2013

Impressive

I recommend this whisky for anyone who gets on well with the 12 year single malt who wants to explore whisky further, it goes down very well and has similarities to the 12 year old but with enough difference to make it special. Masterofmalt prices are great so don't miss out, I will be getting in more of this.

This is a very nice, smooth, single-malt. A decent price on a great whisky! A.Gray

Apologies to Glenfiddich

sorry Missed the stars re above.

29th November 2012

Touch of water works

Just a touch mind.

29th November 2012

Smooooth!

This has to be one of my favourites. Very smooth and rich. Nearly finished my first bottle of this. There will definitely be more!

10th November 2012

Underrated

Glenfiddich has a habit of being ignored in Whisky circles because of its popularity abroad, but they make excellent stuff...this offering is top notch, being about 15 years old, and with a Bourbon finish...it must be pretty darn good as I am on my 2nd bottle...

21st September 2012

Take my wallet away

Sensational Malt, one of my favorites, smooth fruity,long life, vanilla mixed with stewed pip fruits I could go on I'm already a Glenfiddich fan. I would and have recommend this to any serious whisky nut !

19th September 2012

Sued Buster

The reviewer immediately above is an idiot. How can something be too watery and too dry at the same time? Go back to kindergarten.

21st August 2012

Something doesn't quite click

The nose on this is enticing - different from other Glenfiddichs with lots of spicy undertones. The palate however doesn't do it for me - too watery and too dry, with none of the gentle sweetness the nose promised. I prefer the standard 12 year-old Glenfiddich to this - but if you want a top Glenfiddich, get the 15.

22nd June 2012

After dinner choices...

Can't decide between dessert or a whiskey after dinner? You can have both! This is a delightfuly smooth and sweet whiskey, and your non whiskey drinking friends will seriously think twice about the joys of a dram.

10th May 2012

Lovely

One of the nicest Whisky's i've tasted. Well worth a purchase!

26th April 2012

Delicious

A taste of chestnuts, smooth to perfection and extremely tasty. My first Glenfiddich purchase and a fantastic one indeed.

19th February 2012

So smooth

Had this in Manchester lately and it was just delightfully smooth. I shall be purchasing a bottle!
