   Glenfiddich 1937 - 64 Year old

Glenfiddich 1937 / 64 Year Old

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 40%

The rarest Glenfiddich ever released - just 61 bottles of spirit remained in the cask when it was bottled in 2001. At 64 years of age, it was also the world's oldest single malt whisky at the time of release. As such, and coming from such a famous distillery, it is one of the most collectable whiskies ever released, and makes headlines around the world every time a bottle comes up at auction.

Glenfiddich 1937 - 64 Year old

In 1937, cask 843 was filled with spirit from the stills at The Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown and laid down in a dark, damp dunnage warehouse to mature and develop. It was discovered to be an unusually slow-maturing whisky and over its life ten consecutive warehouse masters patiently watched over cask 843 and frequently nosed and tasted the whisky, noting its development. After 64 years, in October 2001, Glenfiddich's Malt Master David Stewart declared that cask 843 was finally ready to be bottled. Just 61 bottles were left in the cask.

Tasting Notes

Producer's Tasting Notes

Colour: Rich walnut, dark amber, antique bronze.

Nose: Huge and complex, robust oak, burnt heather.  Poached pears in chocolate toffee, raisins, cinnamon & cloves.  A touch of leather and then dark roast coffee.

Taste: Initial cosseting smoothness, treacle, sweet.  Then cedar, oak and drying bitter chocolate notes.

Finish:  Doesn't overstay.  Heavy oak and sweet tobacco.  Rich fruit cake.  Smoky and very warming.
