Day 291 Drink: Glenfiddich Ancient Reserve 18 Year Old Single Malt
Glenfiddich means "Valley of the Deer" in Gaelic. The distillery was established in 1886 in the Scottish Highlands.
Glenfiddich Ancient Reserve 18 Year Old Single Malt is an 86-proof Speyside whisky that has been aged in ex-Oloroso sherry and Bourbon whiskey barrels. It is an inviting tarnished brass color, with an enticing herbal nose. The flavor opens with mellow wood, a touch of fruit and some toffee in the finish.
