tasting notes

GLENFIDDICH Malt Master's Edition

Colour

Deep ruby red.

Nose

Damp earth and whisky-soaked wood intertwine with deep vanilla and smoky embers.

Taste

Rich with complex flavours layered by double-maturation. Sherbet and zinginess slowly turn to spice. Tempting plum and cherry follow, with hints of toasted almonds and
fruit cake.

Finish

Silky and smooth.

Glenfiddich Malt Master

Our first double-matured expression

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.

 

  • CARAMELISED CASKS

    The sweet Spanish sherry butts we use to mature our whiskies are toasted to caramelise their wood sugars. Deepening the fruit and softening the sweetness of the maturing whisky inside.

  • OUR MALT MASTERS

    Brian Kinsman is only our sixth Malt Master. He follows in the footsteps of whisky’s longest serving Malt Master, David Stewart. David taught him the art and science of whisky making during an intense eight-year apprenticeship.

  • DOUBLE MATURATION

    A new idea from our Malt Master, and a first for Glenfiddich. This is sophisticated maturation that expertly builds a remarkable depth of aroma and palate.

  • GENTLE FLAVOURING

    The sherry butts we use each hold 110 gallons and are the largest of all casks used in maturing single malt Scotch whisky. Their size means the whisky inside matures more slowly and gently picks up their aromas and flavours.
