Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Note: This has come from a private collection and as such has some minor scuffing/scratches/handling marks to the black tin which are unavoidable. Actual product not pictured.
This whisky’s creation was inspired by the collapse of several Glenfiddich distillery roofs in January 2010 following weeks of heavy snow. The exposed casks including Oloroso Sherry and ex-Bourbon barrels were subject to temperatures as low as -19 degree celsius. The end result is a vatting of whiskies ranging from 12 to 30 years of age, bottled in 2010. A must for any whisky collector. Comes packaged in presentation tin as pictured.
Tasting note: Very pale gold colour. Aromas are delicate; attractive nashi pear top note over pastry and pop-corn like scents. Entry is soft and semi sweet with a slow spice power wave building over a nashi pear base. Outstanding length. Superb, silky mouthfeel. Excellent persistence. Delicate peat, honeycomb, sweet cereal aftertaste. A welcome departure from the distillery's house style. Non chill filtered. 47.6% Alc./Vol.
