Glenfiddich Cask Collection Select Cask
The new Glenfiddich Cask Collection Select Cask began arriving at Travel Retail locations the world over in September of 2013 and will reach UK shores in April 2014 along with another couple of non age statement drams.
These three bottlings will become part of the permanent range at Travel Retail with current suggestions that they may replace the 12 Year Old, 15 Year Old and 14 Year Old Rich Oak expressions. I'm hopeful this is not true as the Rich Oak and 15 year old Solera Reserve are two of my personal favourite drams.
I was sent a sample of each of these drams by my good friend and fellow blogger Steve (@steveprentice) of Somerset Whisky Blog and I have to say although they were not what i was expecting all three are perfectly and easily drinkable.
This particular expression reminded me of my breakfast with Weetabix and fruit and I really hope this is just an addition to the standard range as i really enjoy the Glenfiddich 12 Year Old.
Initial Press releases in September 2013 had this priced at around the £39 mark.
An initial hit of malt loaf and weetabix comes across before it settles down to a more grassy note with hints of freshly cut beetroot and lemongrass, a sweet hay note is in here too along with some orange and grapefruit peels
malty and oaky with hints of sweet orange and grapefruit peel mixed with beetroot and black pepper
malty with a hint of crushed black pepper
