In 2012, we rolled virgin American oak casks across Canada. People were invited to inscribe them with their hopes and dreams. The casks were then filled with Glenfiddich of at least 14 years of age, matured in American oak casks. The expression was then left to finish in these ”casks of dreams” for three months. The resulting single malt displays notes of vanilla and rich dried fruit on the nose, complemented by a delicate layer of spice for a long and lingering finish.

NOSE - Sweet vanilla and wood spice, coupled with hints of dried fruit and subtle honey notes. TASTE - Creamy and smooth on the palate with sweet layers of vanilla, honey and spice, followed by a malty sweetness. FINISH - Exquisitely long and smooth with notes of lingering vanilla and subtle sweetness.

A vatting of different ages of Glenfiddich (the youngest being 14 years old) aged in American oak, then married in virgin American oak casks on which folk from the States had written their hopes and dreams…Awww! Deliciously fruity and clean, it’s all pear juice, creme brulee, fudge, cool mint, and dessert apple. With water, there’s dusty cinnamon, kiwi, and milk chocolate. The oak acts as a smoothing base for this fruitiness. A lovely idea and a lovely whisky. (Summer 2012) Reviewed by: Dave Broom
