Glenfiddich Project XX, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
One of the first bottlings in Glenfiddich new ‘Experimental Series’, the XX is a combination of 20 casks each selected by one of Glenfiddich brand ambassadors from around the world. An experiment conducted to create a whisky that was the product of many experts as opposed to one malt master
Nose: This smells like a bit of a beastie, lots of woody spicy notes, toffee and orange peel. Clearly some serious cask action going on here.
Palate: Lots of wood: cloves, cinnamon and vanilla with tingly wood tannins, all wrapped up with some sweet fudge notes.
Finish: Long and layered, with lingering notes of espresso and dark chocolate.
