Glenfiddich 40-year-old 2019 release

William Grant & Sons, Glenfiddich 40-year-old 2019 release

RRP £2,700

Glenfiddich uses a process called ‘remnant vatting’ to create this whisky – the marrying of casks that are at least 40 years old with some whisky from the last bottling of a 40-year-old, thereby creating continuity between these rare batches. Glenfiddich is the only single malt to use this process. The resulting drink is silky smooth with lots of dark fruit complexity and strong hints of old age, with French polish and touches of sandalwood. There are lots of dried fruit flavours of dates and raisins, along with stewed apples. A deeply satisfying whisky.
