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!
