Glenfiddich Gran Cortes XXII, which is named after the grand palaces of Spain, is said to be a complex liquid of auspicious dark red intensity with bold richness underpinned by a depth of sweetness.

This latest Grand Series bottling, follows on from the inaugural Glenfiddich Grand Cru release, which launched in September 2019.

Commenting on the whisky, Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, said: “We researched age-old processes, testing finishing times and maturations to find the perfect composition of character, depth and aroma. After careful experimentation, we found our match. The 22-year-old Glenfiddich malts from our old-age collection were finished in Palo Cortado oak casks. The alchemy that takes place in the oak casks pushes the boundaries once again. The finished product is a truly unique whisky with a dark red hue and distinctive character. It’s an unforgettable spirit to mark the most special occasions.”

Glenfiddich Gran Cortes XXII, will be available later this month from specialist retailers in China and Taiwan, for a RRP of £185.00.
