GLENFIDDICH SNOW PHOENIX SPEYSIDE SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
After heavy snow damaged the Glenfiddich warehouse, Malt Master Brian Kinsman selected some of the finest Oloroso and American oak casks from the survivors and married them to create a unique limited edition. Bottled free from chill filtration at a strength of 47.6% abv.
Proof: 95.2 (47.6% ABV)
Distillery: The Glenfiddich Distillery
This will cause a stir – a special one-off bottling of higher-strength Glenfiddich, created from both ex-bourbon & Oloroso casks aged 13-30 years old, sourced from warehouses whose rooves had collapsed on 7th January 2010 under the hundreds of tonnes of snow that had fallen in Speyside that winter. A great whisky with a genuine backstory and a terrific packaging job – we reckon this will become a cult malt.
