Glenfiddich 40 years old (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.
Producer’s tasting notes:
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.
