Customer Rating
One of the first pair of entries in the Glenfiddich Experimental Series – a whisky finished in casks seasoned with India Pale Ale. The Speyside Craft Brewery created a special beer which was aged in ex-Glenfiddich casks for a month before they were returned to the distillery and filled with whisky for a three-month finishing period. The result is a vibrant and fruity dram.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)

    Nose: Candy necklaces, barley sugar, lemon zest, brioche, milky cornflakes (with a sprinkling of white sugar), dried apple rings, soft cinnamon and a dusting of nutmeg.

    Palate: Oily texture with rich vanilla toffee and lemon cream to start. A green leafiness sits at the centre, surrounded by oaky spice, Shreddies, cocoa and floral hints – almost like rose-water-infused chocolate...

    Finish: Freshly crushed malt, Ovaltine, Cocoa Puffs and hints of damp green leaves.

    Comment: Not a beer-flavoured whisky, but one that sits alongside the beer and shares some flavour ideas – floral touches, fruit and a hint of green leafiness. A great dram.

    Just into my first few pours of this one and it is extremely good for an NAS scotch. I do enjoy craft beer from local breweries here in Ontario Canada and don't really fine much in the way of a hops influence in this so far. I would highly recommend if you like something a little different but delicious.

    Excellent! Exactly what you expect from a Glenfiddich but with something else. More rounded flavours and a little more citrus. No beer here but can see what has been done. Defiantly worth a go!!!

    I have just sampled Glenfiddich IPA and am very pleased with it. The hoppiness may be a challenge for some, but to an old beer drinker, no challenge at all. It makes a terrific sweetener for black coffee. The price per bottle is very acceptable. This is a good product and well worth keeping on hand in the liquor cabinet. I will buy it again

    The idea was interesting but the result exceed all the expectations: a fantastic surprise!!! Excellent whiskey at the beginning with a distinct but also simple aroma and later some slightly bitter, floral and spicy notes typical of the IPA beers emerge. A fantastic idea to follow for a fantastic product!

    Definite noticeable interesting aroma. Smooth, worth picking up a bottle if you have the spare cash to try something different but not something I'll be buying again.

    A fantastic Whisky far better than expected. We were instantly warmed by the idea of an IPA cask but great for those whom aren't even an IPA drinker (It doesn't taste of beer!) . Oily, smooth and great taste throughout. I'll be stock piling if this one is only around for a short time!
