According to the Speyside based distillery, this latest release continues to challenge conventions, as another unexpected marriage of two luxury worlds; a blend of Scotland and France.
Glenfiddich Grande Couronne 26 Year Old, is said to be vibrant and lively with an abundance of toasty oak sweetness, reminiscent of a French pâtisserie, freshly-baked Tarte Tatin and buttery choux pastry on the nose. Followed by deep, velvety smooth and indulgently sweetness on the palate, with notes of café crème, soft brown sugar and a hint of spice.
Commenting on the launch, Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich Malt Master, said: “The Grand Series perfectly encapsulates Glenfiddich’s spirit of innovation and our ability to experiment with aged liquid and intriguing finishes. Grande Couronne is the latest to exemplify that approach. It is the only Glenfiddich single malt that has matured in American and European oak casks and finished in rare French Cognac casks.”
Glenfiddich Grande Couronne 26 Year Old, is now available from selected specialist retailers, for a RRP of £450.00.
