Glenfiddich Scotch Single Malt 40 Year Old

Glenfiddich Scotch Single Malt 40 Year Old 750ml      
Sku: 1049390*

Casks for this, the fourth vatting of 40 Year Old, were laid down in 1961, 1965 and 1966 - the same years The Beatles first performed at Liverpool’s Cavern Club, Sir Winston Churchill died and The Sound of Music was released, respectively. Bottles come in a solid oak presentation box with detailed tasting notes from renowned whisky writer Michael Jackson.

Tasting notes
COLOUR Garnet. Dark marble. NOSE Floral. Herbaceous borders. A rose garden. Fragrant. Honeyed. Then beeswax. Polished oak and leather armchairs. TASTE Oily, then creamy and sweet, arousing delicious expectations of the white chocolate notes that can occur in a long-matured Glenfiddich. The promise is realised, in ascending layers of flavour. After mocha coffee and pain au chocolat, boxes of dates. Then a teasing, bittersweet, moment; something dark, crazy and Belgian. Chocolate truffles in crème Anglaise. Raspberries and redcurrants with a malt-doused vanilla ice cream. FINISH For all the sweet and creamy suggestions, this single malt Scotch whisky is balanced by fruitiness and acidity. Finally, a late, long, restrained dryness. Bitter chocolate pralines with root ginger, burnt-tasting caramels in front of a smoky, aromatic log fire.
