Quick Fire Whisky Tasting Notes

Glenfiddich Grand Cru
23 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
40% ABV

Nose: Moscatel and winter spice poached pears, sour apple Chewits, slices of plum jam-based Bakewell tart and warm Stollen, assorted candied peel and blackberry fool. Followed by notes of sugared almonds, Cadbury’s crunchie bar, McVitie's gingernut biscuits, anise, sweet musk, spiced oak, sandalwood and a wandering and weaving floral freshness.
Palate: Mulled apple juice, tinned pears, crystallised ginger covered in dark chocolate, pineapple flavoured fruit jellies, M&S lemon curd whitby buns and egg custard tarts with a good dusting of nutmeg. Followed by baked banana chips, walnuts, wood spice infused Moscatel, white pepper and oodles upon oodles of opulent oak.
Finish: A warm and woody, long winter spiced hug of a finesseful finish.
Summary: This is the first expression in Glenfiddich’s new premium end Grand Series, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Wondrous waves of aged signature ‘fiddich notes, balanced beautifully with French CuvĂ©e wine cask influences.
