Glenfiddich 19 Year Old Age of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish

Part of the Age of Discovery series from Glenfiddich, this 19 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky was inspired by the Portuguese explorers that discovered the islands Porto Santo and Madeira in the 15th century. It was finished in fine, aged Madeira wine casks from an independent island winery dating back to 1850. An earthy, bright whisky with a warmth that fades to long sweetness. This is the first time they have used Madeira casks for an incredible, rich depth.

    Nose:    Deep earthy aromas of sweet ripe fig and orange marmalade create a backdrop to bright notes –fresh gooseberry and grapes ripening on the vine.

    Taste:    Rich, spicy cinnamon and crushed black pepper rest on a deep earthy base. Caramelised fruits, crystallised ginger, raisins and hints of dry oak unravel. A satisfying, silky smooth, almost oily texture.

    Finish:    Dry with warmth that fades into sweet marmalade notes.

Note: Product has come from a private collection, minor markings are inevitable and collectors should have reasonable expectations in this regard.
