Glenfiddich 40 Year Old Limited Edition (Release Number 8)

Glenfiddich 40YO #8 Bottling Note

Glenfiddich is the best selling single malt in the world and it is easy to see why when you try this incredibly rare, multi-award winning, forty year old bottling.

Glenfiddich use a process called 'remnant vatting' which means they take some of the previous vatting of the last forty year old and add it to the new batch. In theory this means there could be some much older stock in your bottle than the measly forty years it advertises... Either way we're not complaining.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: So very rich with macerated black cherries, luxurious dark chocolate, dried fruits and bramley apples steeped in Cognac.

Palate: Silky verging on ethereal; chocolate, spiced apples, dates, raisins and candied orange peel make up this mouth-coatingly amazing dram.

Finish: Long edging on ridiculous. As expected with a whisky this old the finish just keeps on going. Expect pears, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate shavings and espresso.

Overall: This malt has perfect balance, there are big flavours cut with subtle ones. It is full-bodied but not abrasive. It is quite simply excellent.
