In 2012, Glenfiddich went on a "Cask of Dreams" tour by rolling 20 virgin barrels through 10 Canadian cities from Winnepeg, Manitoba to Vancouver, British Columbia. Along the way, Scotch lovers inscribed the barrels by finishing the sentence, "One day I will..." These barrels returned to Scotland and were filled with single malt whisky that had been aged at least 14 years in American oak. After finishing for 3 months in the "Casks of Dreams", it was bottled and sent to Canada for distribution.

Tasting Notes

"Classic dark fruits hit the nose first then it’s fresh straw, cereals, and corn husks with the punch of new-wood spiced-vanilla. Hot pepper spice and citrus zest wake up the mouth relaxing into a lazy day of chewing on a blade of grass. Put aside all that new age aromatherapy business for this long and spicy finish. Oak tannins snap with a pleasant bitterness. Grapefruit essential oils croon layering in complexity to the finish. "
