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 finished. The result is a vibrant and fruity dram.

Glenfiddich IPA Cask Reviews

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.

    A real effin' disappointment. Only good for cleaning carburetors. It's crap.

    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!

    Divine sips! Much better than I could have hoped for.

    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!

    One of the best drinks I have ever had. The IPA infusion really makes this drink something else. Perfect for a warm evening sat outside

    Phenomenal. I get, for some reason, marzipan and cherry, almost like an amaretto, on the nose and taste, but that may be my palate rather than what was intended! As much as I enjoy good whiskies, I would profess to be an expert.

    I personally do get the note of molt on the pallet however I expected a little bit more complexity to be honest not bad though by any means

    This is great I usually like smokey peaty scotch. I'll make a rare exception in this case want at least 2 more bottles

    Bourbon nose and first sip. Unusual. Glenfiddich comes through after. No real IPA or hoppy notes. Quality, yes. Interesting, yes. Traditional, no.

    Nice smooth dram. Good fruity nose followed by smooth, sweet taste with a hint of lemon zest. Long smooth slightly malty finish but little hint of the IPA it was named after. Worth adding to your cupboard

    Won this bottle from a bet with my father. Very glad I won! Sweet at first then hips the roof of your mouth followed by a dry and yes slightly hoppy after taste. I will try and win it again.

    Interesting whisky; definitely tangy with a lovely spice to it. Not what I was expecting but very nice indeed. Glad they went for 43% abv, cannot tell the age though!
