Glenfiddich Project XX 70cl 47°
Second expression of the new Experimental Series range that combines innovation with world wide whisky makers' collaboration. Glenfiddich Project XX is proving to be quite exciting.
20 whisky experts, the brand's ambassadors that come from 16 different countries, had the chance to create an unexpected and extraordinary whisky. Every expert chose a Glenfiddich cask from the distillery. In the chosen barrels there are Porto, Sherry and Bourbon casks. Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich master distiller created this Single Malt with every single aspects and kept Glenfiddich's delicacy.
With it's golden deep colour, Project XX combines the warm character and the fruitiness of Glenfiddich, hinted with smooth apple tree flower scent and ripe pear. Its complex personality reveals an explosion of flavours: cinnamon and almond cotton candy, tannin notes and liquorice. Its long and tasty finish ends on a woody note.
The steep-sided valley where the Fiddich River flows, gave its name to the best-selling malt in the world.
The distillery is located on the banks of the river in Dufftown. Fiddich translates as “stag” from Gaelic and here’s why the animal is now the emblem of the distillery. This famous distillery has been established in 1886 and is still in the hands of the same family (as a limited company). In 1963, the company bet on spreading the Single Malt outside the borders of Scotland – which was considered as pure folly by blended scotch producers, deeming Single Malts as too intense, too richly aromatic or too complex for non-Scots drinkers. Glenfiddich remained traditional and is still heating its small stills with coal and ageing spirit in casks. The whiskies, aged in different woods, are blended in the Glenfiddich cellars, and bottled “at the chateau”! In fact, the distillery overlooks the complete bottling process. Glenfiddich is proud to own the most rewarded Single malt whisky range in the world.
