Glenfiddich Spirit of Speyside Distillery Edition 2020
Forbes - How To Get Your Hands On This Rare Single Malt From Glenfiddich
Working tirelessly in the warehouse, warehouseman George Paterson drew initial samples from Glenfiddich's wares, working closely with Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, to select the best one.
After careful consideration of Glenfiddich's maturing stocks, this special liquid which had spent 13 years maturing in the darkness of Glenfiddich’s Warehouse 26 was hand-picked by Brian.
The whisky had been filled into refill sherry butt no. 25427 on 24th May 2007, and is one of the rare casks filled at 65.8%. Retaining its strength surprisingly well, the whisky has been bottled at the unusually high cask strength of 65.07% ABV.
An exceptional rarity, with only 450 bottles produced, this particularly unique Glenfiddich due to its natural high cask-strength and single sherry cask maturation is expected to be especially sought-after amongst whisky lovers and connoisseurs around the world looking to get their hands on a rare and special Glenfiddich to add to their collection.
