Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Year
Glenfiddich // Speyside, Scotland
Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Year is the first in the Grand range released by the brand. The single malt ages for 23 years in a mix of American and European oak before it finishes for up to six months in selected cuvée wine casks. These French oak wine casks formerly held fermenting wine which would ultimately become Champagne. It is available exclusively at Harrods in the UK for the first two weeks of September 2019 before being released to other markets including the US and global travel retail.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeAmerican and European Oak; finished in French oak cuvée wine casks
"This is a lusciously rich dram from Glenfiddich, landing sweetly on the palate with notes of toffee, pear, and almond. A bit of salt and a gently floral finish linger after sipping. It would make an excellent night cap or pair nicely with a cheese course."
