Handpicked by Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman, this special liquid spent 13 years maturing in the darkness of Glenfiddich’s Warehouse 26. Finished in a single, second fill sherry cask, Glenfiddich Spirit of Speyside Distillery Edition 2020 has been bottled at the unusually high strength of 65.07% ABV.

Interested in what this special Speyside spirit could taste like? Find tasting notes on this incredible whisky below:

Nose: Rich, vibrant and zesty. A few drops of water reveal orange oil and vanilla oak aromas complemented by layers of beeswax, polished sandalwood and dried bracken

Taste: Lively, silky smooth and incredibly sweet with a rich citrus and cinnamon-infused apple fruitiness

Finish: Succulent sweet fruit unfolding into a long-lasting oakiness 

Brian and Struan recommend adding a drop or two of water to this unique whisky to ‘open’ up the flavours and bring down the ABV a touch.
