 glenfiddichThe Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask Reserve is the Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Glenfiddich’s new limited edition release. It is a toast to the American bourbon industry which has provided barrels to Scotch distilleries for maturing their whiskies.

The Bourbon Cask Reserve is exclusively aged for 19 years in American oak casks that once travelled great American rivers.

“Aging this single malt entirely in a bourbon cask has created a spirit that has a balance of spicy sweetness tempered by rich, dried fruit flavors. Its nose consists of toffee and deep citrus notes, balanced by dry, faint smoky notes of oak. The taste is complex and layered with vanilla, fine leather and tobacco, which develops a sweet, velvety mouth-feel enhanced by spicy hints of cardamom and nutmeg, which fade slowly into a warm and long finish,” explained Malt Master Brian Kinsman.

The Age of Discovery Glenfiddich Bourbon Cask Reserve’s distinctive packaging is adorned with illustrations of the meandering Mississippi River with each panel displaying a landmark along the casks’ expedition from America to Scotland.

The deep blue box and the black glass bottle with a red cartouche compass make it an ideal gift for the adventurous and discerning drinker.

The 2013 Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask Reserve (ABV 40%) is available nationally with a recommended retail price of $149.99.
