This latest release from the Speyside based distillery, is the first Glenfiddich expression to be finished in French cuvée casks, which were previously used to ferment sparkling wines in the Champagne region.
Glenfiddich Grand Cru, is said to deliver notes of apple blossom, freshly baked bread and candied lemon on the nose. Followed by notes of rich vanilla oak, sweet brioche, sandalwood, pear sorbet and white grapes on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich Malt Master, said: “Breaking category conventions once more, this unusual collaboration presented an exciting opportunity to create a spirit that further elevated our unique Glenfiddich style. We experimented with the maturation time and hand selected the right balance of 23 Year Old Glenfiddich casks out of our unique collection of old age malts. The further influence from the oak of the French cuvée casks added an extra layer of complexity thanks to the liquid they once held. Marrying the best of both worlds, the final liquid presents an exceptional finesse and is a special tribute to each individual cuvée cask the malts were finished in.”
Glenfiddich Grand Cru, is now available exclusively from Harrods, before being available from other luxury and specialist retailers from September 17th, for a RRP of £220.00.
