With Father’s Day on the horizon, Glenfiddich has put together a special selection of fine Speyside single malts
In 1886, William Grant set out to fulfil a lifetime ambition to build his own distillery. Ably helped by his seven sons, on Christmas Day 1887 the family created the first drops of what has become the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky; Glenfiddich.
Now 125 years on, Glenfiddich still remains steadfastly family-owned with the next generation of pioneering descendants expertly crafting a wide range of single malt whiskies befitting every palate and pocket.
With Father’s Day on the horizon, Glenfiddich has put together a special selection of fine Speyside single malts, helping those looking to find the perfect gift for this special occasion.
Glenfiddich Mini Mix Set, RRP £13.49 (Available at Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose)
The three most popular expressions of Glenfiddich have been packaged together to help Dad explore the range and to make a perfect Father’s Day gift. This set contains a 5cl bottle of each of the following award-winning whiskies: Glenfiddich 12 Year Old is the world’s best-selling single malt Scotch whisky because of its appetising freshness, pear-like fruitiness and elegance; the perfectly-balanced, sweet, rich and complex Glenfiddich 15 Year Old is a perennial favourite of the single malt enthusiast; the spicy, robust and sophisticated Glenfiddich 18 Year Old is a rare delight. Between them, these three whiskies perfectly illustrate the influence of extended maturation and innovation with different types of oak casks.
Glenfiddich Tasting Collection, RRP £32.99 (Available at Tesco and Asda)
The supersized version of the mini mix set, the tasting collection comprises three 20cl bottles of three variants of Glenfiddich of different ages. The tasting collection is ideal for sharing, after all, single malt Scotch whisky is the most convivial of spirits. Glenfiddich 12 Year Old has been matured in both Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks, ensuring a perfect balance between fresh fruit and subtle oak flavours. Glenfiddich 15 Year Old is renowned for its richness derived from time spent in a Solera vat, traditionally used to harmonise sherry, encouraging myriad different flavours to come together. Finally, Glenfiddich 18 Year Old is a rare whisky with the depth and complexity which only comes from extended maturation; it is robust and distinguished.
Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva RRP £99.69 70cl, ABV 40% (Available at www.drinksdirect.co.uk)
The prestigious, deep burgundy gift box alludes to its superior contents; Glenfiddich 21 Year Old. Matured in American and Spanish oak casks for 21 years to reach a rich smoothness, the whisky is then finished in Caribbean rum casks, imparting notes of toffee, fig and vanilla sweetness. These complex flavours are enhanced by a spicy warmth, oak and the merest hint of smoke on the palate whilst rich aromas of fudge and hints of ripe banana intermingle on the nose.
Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish, RRP £90.49 (Available at www.masterofmalt.com)
Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish, celebrates the adventurous spirit of Portuguese explorers in the 15th Century, and is Glenfiddich’s first-ever 19 year old single malt Scotch whisky.
The story begins with its strikingly beautiful gift box, mapping the travel of the pioneering Portuguese explorers, while thanks to the oak casks, which were previously used to age fine Madeira wine, the liquid is rich and delicious, with aromas of ripe fig, caramelised fruit and spicy notes of cinnamon and black pepper.
Glenfiddich 30 Year Old, RRP £262.99 (Available at www.thewhiskyexchange.com)
Crafted with exceptional care and precision, Glenfiddich 30 Year Old is a key expression of Glenfiddich’s exacting standards and adventurous nature. Aged in Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks – all of which are hand selected by Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, to ensure they possess an exquisite complexity of fragrance and flavour. The nose of Glenfiddich 30 Year Old is finely balanced with substantial oakiness matched by fruit and luscious sherry notes. Its taste is complex and seductively woody, with dark chocolate flavours which are emphasised by floral sweetness.
