Distillery : Glenfiddich
Region : Speyside
House Style : Smoothness, richness
Body : Rounded
Colour : Warm amber
Tasting Note :.Nose: Malt, wood smoke, vanilla, nuts, berries, pepper, and a fair amount of sherry influence. Layered, complex, but very subdued. There's a great deal going on, but it's all being told in whispers. Becomes wonderfully rich and full-bodied as it opens up. Let it sit.Palate : Seems a bit disappointing at first (but just wait). More one-dimensional than the nose would suggest, with malt and roasted brown sugar dominating. The sherry has virtually disappeared. Nice, but not particularly interesting, frankly
Finish: Here's where the Malt Master's Edition makes up for its shortcomings and then some. Ranks among the best finish experiences I've ever had with any whisky. Buttery, smoky, fruity (cherries, bananas, and bitter apple), with healthy layers of vanilla, malt, and caramel. Warm, smooth, ultra-rich, and it lasts forever with additional layers revealing themselves a full two or three minutes after swallowing.
Glenfiddich Malt Master's Edition. A complete original, from our Malt Master, Brian Kinsman.
Exceptional skill, decades of dedication and an inventive mind make a brilliant Malt Master. Our sixth Malt Master Brian Kinsman has created our first double-matured expression.After many years ageing in oak casks, our Malt Master's Edition spends its final years in sherry casks. This layers an unmatched depth of aroma and flavour in each one of our individually crafted batches.
Earth and soaked wood aromas blend with deep vanilla. Flavours are sharp with spice and round with plum. A hint of toasted almonds gives way to a silky smooth finish.
Our distillery was founded by William Grant in 1887. But our story is still being written today, not just by William's descendants, who still own and manage our Distillery, but also by the generations of people who've worked here, helping to create the world's most awarded single malt Scotch whisky
