Glenfiddich 19 Year Old – Age Of Discovery – Scotch Whisky News

A new exclusive released shortly after the much sought after Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix.

This rich and delicious nineteen year old Glenfiddich single malt whisky has been matured in oak casks previously used to age fine madeira wine.

The majority of the Madeira casks came from the Canterio warehouse of Henrique & Henrique, a famous family owned Madeira company established in 1850. This is where the casks were first used to mature wine made from luscious Tinta Negra mole grapes before being transported to The Glenfiddich Distillery.

Brian Kinsman, the Glenfiddich Malt master and only the sixth in history since the distillery was built in 1886, has personally selected the Glenfiddich Scotch Whiskies used to create this exclusive Glenfiddich Madeira Cask Finish and the first in the Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Range.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: A deep earthy aroma of sweet ripe figs and orange marmalade form a backdrop to bright notes of fresh gooseberries and grapes ripening on the vine

Taste: Rich and spicy, cinnamon and crushed black pepper rest on a base of deep earthy notes, caramelised fruits, crystallised ginger, raisins and hints of dry oak. The texture is satisfying, silky smooth.

Finish: Pleasingly dry with warmth that fades into a lingering sweet marmalade finish.
