Dear Whisky Lovers!
From today, with the purchase of 50 ml of The Glenfiddich 40 years old or The Balvenie 40 years old in our whisky bar on Nowy Świat 32 street, you will get an invitation to the 5th edition of our Whisky Festival in Jastrzębia Góra.
The Glenfiddich (Release No. 13) / 46,2% – Glenfiddich 40 years old, a vatting of carefully selected casks debuted in 2000. The oldest cask used for the original batch was filled on July 3, 1925. Each subsequent bottling is created through remnant vatting process (new batch is married with what was leftover from the previous one) and consequently can trace its origins to the initial launch. The year 2015 brought 12th release with another 600 bottles produced. Each one of them is offered in a handsome presentation case of the finest, hand-stitched calf leather with embossed print work and an intricately designed lock and key.
Nose: beautifully rich and aromatic with layer upon layer of dried fruits, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and ripe black cherries. Occasional wafts of gentle wood smoke, polished leather and cloves.
Palate: silky smooth and luxuriously mouth coating. The initial flavors are intense dried fruits, Christmas cake, dates, raisins and stewed apples. Over time slightly dryish oak notes appear with some bitter chocolate and just the merest hint of peat.
Finish: incredibly long lasting and complex – a truly memorable experience.
The Balvenie 40 years old / 48,5% – Balvenie 40 years old was launched in 2010 and is the distillery oldest regularly released bottling. To create Batch One (only 150 bottles) the Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, has skillfully married together small amounts of The Balvenie matured in 4 refill hogsheads and 3 sherry butts that have lain in warehouses for at least forty years. Each new batch (year 2015 welcomed Batch 7) is created as the previous one runs low and is focused around a careful blend of old sherry and bourbon casks. Different cask types impart different qualities, bringing together a perfect harmony of fruit, spice, sweetness, citrus and oak to create a Balvenie of the very highest order. According to the distillery statement ‘Silky texture delivers a beautifully mouth-coating sweetness and a spicy sensation of cloves, cinnamon and ginger. The flavor develops into a gentle oakiness with hints of dark chocolate, roasted almonds and sherried fruitiness’.
