Glenfiddich Distillery

Glenfiddich is the largest single malt distillery in the world. There are 27 copper stills, an excellent tour and tasting program and a great shop. The distillery is located right in Dufftown and it a short walk to Mrs Barclay’s B&B where I stayed. The four whiskies I tasted were:

Glenfiddich 12 yr old – light and pleasant
Glenfiddich 15 yr old – more flavourful
Glenfiddich 18 yr old – baked apple, toffee, cinnamon
Glenfiddich 21 yr old – very smooth and flavourful

All of these whiskies are most welcome in my drinks cabinet. Dufftown is a great place. They have whisky festivals and there are several pubs and restaurants to help with whisky exploration.A short bus ride away is the Highlander Inn and the Craigellachie Hotel. I found the Highlander to be a great spot to expand my knowledge of whisky.
