Glenfiddich Grand Cru Bottling Note

The folks at Glenfiddich clearly enjoy exploring new cask types for their whisky. Whether it's peaty whisky in rum casks, or making good use of icewine casks, the distillery certainly has some experimental flair. And if experimental flair is what you're after, Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Year Old is the perfect thing. This single malt initially ages in American and European oak casks, before being moved over to rare French cuvée oak casks. The influence these casks has had on the whisky is fantastic, lifting the palate with notes of baked goods and fresh fruit.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Apple blossom, freshly baked bread and candied lemon.

Palate: Layers of rich vanilla oak, sweet brioche, sandalwood, pear sorbet and white grape.

Finish: Long, opulent and sweet.

Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Year Old Reviews


Lovely smooth and quaffable just not at a price tag to over quaff!! The maturity is light and delicate, typical Speyside apple and citrus. A break from the norm with the choice of cask and the result is spot on.

They (Glenfiddich) mentoned another 2 releases to follow this year.... maybe Covid has delayed but I am looking forward to seeing what they will be like.

Brilliantly light and complex and looks stunning

Incredible liquid - really get baked bread and slight citrus on the nose and a rich and slightly sweet taste. Presentation is amazing as well!

Any respect for single malt? Don’t buy this

This is a joke single malt at 40% I could not taste the age at 23 years. The grand cru statement and black and gold package is no more than a money making marketing object. It’s chill filtered and colour added even though it does say. When you strip this back it’s an awful malt and one Glenfiddich should be embarrassed to sell. It’s aim is to pander to the airport market. If you had any respect for single malt you wouldn’t touch this . I certainly won’t be again.

Truly something special. It was the best whisky I have ever had. Smooth, sweet, not peaty, delicious.

This year I'm going to skip on the champagne!

Tried this a friend's house who bought it in haste on his way back from Asia and fell in love with the creamy elegant mouthfeel that came from the french cuvee finish. This is an amazing new take on wine - probably cashing on the enormous success of the previous Winter storm finished in Ice wine?
The box and bottle are so minimalist yet classy, it makes a perfect collectable whisky.... or a very expensive gift!

The version in the Airport is 43% and is instantly smooth yet full in the mouth. Fresh on the nose Oak leading to the distant champagne citrus and grape and then into a suprisingly long and lingering sweeter finish. Theres some real effort gone into this dram and the balance is spot on. Even the packaging is pretty impressive.

Personally didnt think it was worth the £220 tag but with a whopping £75 off the normal price on black friday it felt rude to leave it on the shelf, glad I went for it as an early christmas present.... to me, from me!

Far ahead ...

Always, the greatest things have been done (and are done today) by grapes. That's why cognac and well ahead of any whiskey!

Bubbley Jubbley!

Smooth long and sweet - a hit of mouth filling whisky that rolls into a long tail of, well, an almost Champaign tinge.

They have experimented with a number of finishes lately and this one definitely is worth the effort.
