During the affair, I had the opportunity of having a chit-chat with the representative of Glenfiddich, I just had to find out more about this whiskey that is so discrepant from everything else. I first asked about the Glenfiddich Range – which has smooth whiskeys and a very influential sophisticated taste! This is what she said about it:
What makes the Glenfiddich Rich Oak discrepant from all the other whiskeys?
It is because it is made out of new oak and that it has coffee in it as well. It also has toffee and vanilla in it, which it makes it totally different, it is something not usual.
Looking at all the Glenfiddich Whiskeys, which one is the best of them all?
It depends on your palate. Glenfiddich has a lot of ranges [all with a very exquisite and sophisticated taste] – so in essence it is all about different strokes for different folks!
What is very special about the Glenfiddich Small Batch Reserve 18 Year Old Whiskey?
Right now, it is because it is the oldest one that we have here at the affair. The award-winning whiskey (Gold Medal 2013 at the International Spirits Challenge) has baked apple and also has cinnamon flavours, which gives it a very fruity taste.
What makes Glenfiddich?
“For 20 years William Grant nurtured a dream to make the ‘best dram in the valley’. With the help of his family, he finally achieved that vision.
In the summer of 1886, with his seven sons and two daughters by his side, William set out to fulfil a lifelong ambition. Together they began building his Distillery by hand, stone by stone. After a single year of work it was ready and William named it Glenfiddich, Gaelic for Valley of the Deer.
William’s passion, determination and pioneering spirit continues to guide us today. Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family owned and is now the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky, a true reflection of our founder’s innovative nature, passed down through the generations.
