Glenfiddich IPA Cask Bottling Note

Part of Glenfiddich's Experimental Series comes a single malt which was finished for three months in casks which previously held IPA! Created collaboratively by Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman and IPA expert Seb Jones, the IPA which was in the casks before the whisky was specially brewed for this expression by the Speyside Craft Brewery. Bound to be a fascinating whisky for whisky and beer enthusiasts alike (and the cross-over of that Venn diagram, too).

Glenfiddich Experimental Series - IPA Cask Finish Reviews

A solid dram

A very good malt at a fair price, not sure I could taste the IPA at all but nonetheless a smooth malt with a fair bit of depth. Pleasant but not memorable, better than the 12yo offering though.

quaffing juice

Decent stuff. A sweeter and fuller Glenfiddich. I'm no fan of the 12 but like this as an everyday sipper. Fans of the 12 may be disappointed.
IPA influence is subtle so don't let that put you off or be the reason you buy it. Just a simple easy drinking, sweet whisky which, above all, is very enjoyable.

IPA Cask finish - really??

Glenfiddich 12 comes through on the nose with a background of citrus hops,. Decent mouth feel, again elements of the 12yo (for those who are familiar), then come the hops with dry citrus green hop. What follows is slightly odd... sugary sweetness which I wouldnt have though from an IPA.

Its not unpleasent but also its not really worth the £44 price tag, theres so much more at the price range and yes like others say you are heading toward the price of the 18yo.

The romantic side of me wants to believe that the IPA cask finish makes a difference but my head tells me they have simply thrown some hopes like 'cascade' or 'centennial' in the pre filtered process.

Worth trying with a Belhaven Twisted Thistle IPA - I hought they complimented each other quite well.

One Dimensional

Compared with the 18, this whiskey is very one dimensional. The hops come out mildly, but there is a distinctive green/herby characteristic. These flavors persist throughout the sip with little change. However, it is very easy to drink and relatively smooth for a whiskey that's likely on the younger side - age unlisted.

Would have preferred to save the money and purchase an 18, but I can enjoy it.

I reserved judgement on this until I'd had another glass .. not impressed and for me abandon this experiment .. I prefer the Twelve and whatever they have done here has not enhanced or improved it .. quite the opposite .. disappointed I bought this ...

Its ok

Its ok. As an ipa drinker myself I enjoyed this. Think its punching above its weight at 44 quid though. Can get much better stuff for that price

Smells better than it tastes

I love the smell but I love IPAs. Double better. I have had worse scotches. Taste is ok. Doesn’t go bad in mouth after

Worth a shot but misses the mark

The IPA barrels add a bit of a tart bitterness. Not the best complement to a Glenfiddich that doesn't have a lot of character in the first place.

Glenfiddich say’s indistinctive to me but this is good

I would normally avoid Glenfiddich but I really enjoyed the distinctive flavours of this one. I’m picking up the hops and loving them
