Released in Spring 2010, this Glenfiddich Rich Oak has spent 14 years in ex-bourbon casks in the traditional way, before two separate finishes of 12 weeks in new European oak and six weeks in new American oak before bottling. We like the sound of this.

This one stands out wholesale ! Very smooth and delicious. A serious contender to my favourite which is Glengoyne 10 yr.

Been tasting it for a month or more. Yes it is smooth and approachable like most Glenfiddich products. The nose is slightly sweet with some vanilla hints and then nothing. The taste is much the same with no serious pressure on ones senses. There is no finish other then a burning on the side of the tongue, about as complex as a supermarket grape. I like it as a beer chaser, great beginners drink but nothing that would interest an avid scotch drinker.

In my top 3!!! Next to the 21yr old and abunadh. Well done is so smooth, great!

As with the Glenfiddich 15yr, the Rich Oak has a unique ageing process. If you are like me and enjoy experiencing many different whiskies to educate your palate this is definitely worth a try. Another excellent, affordable product from Glenfiddich.

Having been brought up in Speyside I have been a whisky drinker for over 30 years and have always preferred the local whiskies my favourites being Balvenie,Glenlivet,Aberlour and Macallan.I,ve never been a fan of Glenfiddich often thinking it over-rated but I recently received a bottle of Rich Oak for my birthday and have to say it is an exceptionally lovely drink,very smooth and wonderful flavours.Well done Glenfiddich!

The caramel is dominant in the nose, but unfortunately for my taste a little too dry on the palate, a little too acid. The oak is rich alright though. Letting this whisky breathe brings out the best of it ...

Never really liked glenfiddich that much, but this is superb - hope this one stays around - :)

This is one of my favorite expression within the age range 0-15 years (together with Glendronach 15 YO, Laphroaig 10 YO CS, Macallan 12 YO Sherry wood and some independent bottlings). Brian Kinsman has really hit the spot with this one. Try it! Also even though you don't like Glenfiddich.

fantastic, just as wonderful as its pre`decessor toasted oak reserve, slight toffee notes with just a hint of spice and a gentle smoky finish this is an exceptionally rich single malt:
- A Hart, 30th Aug '10
