The first release of the new Glenfiddich Grand range

 

Glenfiddich has unveiled the new Glenfiddich Grand Cru, a 23-year-old single malt whisky matured in American and European oak, finished for several months in French wine casks. This wine is a cuvée wine, that is also used for the production of champagne.

Tasting notes for the Glenfiddich Grand Cru

  • Colour: Dark gold.
  • Nose: Apple blossom, freshly baked bread and candied lemon.
  • Taste: Layers of rich vanilla oak, sweet brioche, sandalwood, pear sorbet and white grape.
  • Finish: Long, opulent and sweet.

The start of the Grand range

The Glenfiddich Grand Cru is the first of the new Grand range and will be followed by two more releases next year. With this range of long matured single malts Glenfiddich wants to serve the luxury whisky segment, accordingly the Grand Cru appears in representative black and gold bottle and packaging.

The launch of the Grand Cru took place a few days ago at a spectacular event at the airport in Singapore, now the 40 % ABV product is initially available for two weeks exclusively in London at Harrods and from Glenfiddich directly before it will reach other retailers internationally.
