THE GLENFIDDICH EXPERIMENTAL SERIES PUSHES WHISKY BOUNDARIES AND CHALLENGES TRADITIONS.
Brian Kinsman, our Malt Master, conducted one of the most exciting malt experiments in Glenfiddich’s 130 year history. Shrouded in secrecy (its code name was XX, pronounced twenty), he invited 2 whisky experts from 16 countries to the Glenfiddich Distillery. Brian gave each of these experts complete freedom to explore the warehouse and choose any single cask of Glenfiddich whisky that intrigued them the most.
20 MINDS. ONE UNEXPECTED WHISKY
The final 20 chosen casks represent some of the most astonishing whiskies under our care. In Brian’s words, “I wanted to create an unexpected whisky. Traditionally every malt whisky is chosen and vatted by one Malt Master to their taste, but I wanted to experiment and marry 20 totally unusual Glenfiddich malts together”. This unique whisky is a recreation of that extraordinary initial small vatting.
Warm summer fruit aromas, sweet candyfloss and liquorice notes. Experiment with a flake of sea salt on the side, to heighten the taste.
