Glenfiddich’s Rare USA-Only 1975 Vintage Whisky Costs $9K Per Bottle

It’s rare that the USA gets its very own exclusive release from one of whisky’s biggest names, but thanks to Scotland’s Glenfiddich scotch company, it’s finally becoming a reality. The outfit’s upcoming Rare Collection, which introduces its 1975 Vintage Cask 4706 and 5114 whiskys, is being produced in a limited run of only 200 bottles (100 each), and sports a price tag deserving of its rarity.

The 1975 Vintage Cask 4706/5114 is the third select whisky from Glenfiddich. It’s comprised of a 44-year-old scotch that’s been aged in two different casks; the first, crafted from European Oak Sherry Butt (4706), and the second, a distinct European Oak Hogshead (5114). Each rarified spirit boasts its own unique flavor, with cask 4706 taking on vibrant notes of oak, vanilla, toasted almonds, blossom, banana, and citrus. Cask 5114, on the other hand, reminisces and contrasts between the subtle flavors of caramel apple, nutmeg, spiced oak, sundried raisins, and vanilla. With both examples clocking in at above 45% ABV, Glenfiddich’s new single malt scotch is sure to appease elites and amateurs alike — but with a price tag of $9,000, its audience is likely to be skewed to the wealthy side of the spectrum.
