Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Red Wine Cask Finish

glenfiddich-wine-caskThe third in the Glenfiddich Age of Discovery series, this 19-year-old single malt whisky has been aged in red wine casks. The release pays homage to the 1831 voyage of English naturalist Charles Darwin to the South American coastline aboard HMS Beagle, which set sail from Plymouth, and features a gift box adorned with illustrations mapping his route.

The whisky has been finished in 200-litre casks that were home to Argentine Malbec and Chilean Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. According to its makers, the red wine finish gives the whisky a “sweet berry taste” with “spicy vanilla notes” and a “smooth finish”.

Its release follows that of the Madeira cask and Bourbon cask editions in the Age of Discovery series, which is exclusively available in travel retail. The Darwin edition is currently being rolled out globally in travel retail outlets. RRP: £75

    This is a mighty fine drop, but not a 750GBP mighty drop, perhaps amend the RRP with a well placed decimal.

    Malacca is the Greek slang word for wanker!
