Glenfiddich AoD Maderia Bottling Note

Glenfiddich Age of Discovery is a rich 19 year old single malt matured in oak casks previously used to age fine Madeira wine. This has created an earthy, distinctive whisky with a full bodied yet fairly young character.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A deep earthy aroma of sweet ripe figs and orange marmalade with bright notes of fresh gooseberries and grapes.

Palate: Rich and spicy, cinnamon and crushed black pepper rest on a base of deep earthy notes, caramalised fruits, crystallised ginger, raisins and hints of dry oak.

Finish: Pleasingly dry with warmth that fades into a lingering sweet marmalade finish.

Overall: Smooth and satisfying, this is an interesting whisky that wears its Madeira cask maturation on its sleeve.

Glenfiddich 19 Year Old Age of Discovery Maderia Cask Finish Reviews

After the Red Wine cask disappointed with this

Nose: Cold tea. Tepid ginger.

Palate: There is a harsh greased arch to this. The burnt sugar is invasive.

After: It's there, it's not large, but the off sugar note remains. Okay.

An excellent dram

Goes down dangerously easily, and I really enjoyed the (for me) unusual finish as I've never had a madeira finish before. I need to procure another bottle asap!

With a very smooth texture with depth i highly recommend this whiskey. I drank with a friend I have not seen in years and it opened another level of comfort and dimension in our conversation. Loved it.

Not a good malt, doesn't sit well on my palate. Just a bit unrefined and hard in my opinion. Black art 1990 is my preferred at the moment.

To me, and excellent sip!

I usually enjoy the Glenfiddich 15 year old as I find it hard to beat for the combination of value/quality. However, I also have to say that this 19 year old Madeira finish is perhaps my favorite Glenfiddich product I have tasted to date! Wonderfully smooth, full of character, with nice hints of spice! If it were a bit less expensive, say around the 18 year old's price + 10%, it would be my first choice for the evening sip. As it is it is still a nice indulgence for special occasions or special friends.


Caveat: I am not a malt expert, nor do I claim to be. I am just a yank who enjoys single malts, and knows what I like. ;) Be that as it may, I do recommend you try this.

Nice catch! Technical errors affect us sometimes, too (those Colobus monkeys nibbling on the wires again). --The Chaps at Master of Malt
