    New Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Years Old

    The following article is not meant for people under 18 years old for most European countries and 21 years old for USA and 25 years old for Sweden and certain other countries with the same age regulation for digital content about beverages containing alcohol. If you aren’t above the legal drinking age in your country please leave this article.

    Glenfiddich presented new limited edition Grand Cru 23 years old at the elegant ambience of the Widder Hotel in Zurich.

    This exclusive single malt Scotch whisky has been matured for 23 years in American and European oak casks and elegantly finished in rare French cuvée casks.


    • Glenfiddich is “World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky”.
    • The company was found in 1887 by William Grant.
    • It’s one of the few single malt distilleries that remains entirely family owned.
    • Glenfiddich means “Valley of the Deer” in Scottish Gaelic, that’s why there is a stag on the logo.
    • In the ’60s, the famous designer Hans Schleger inspired by the unique structure of Glenfiddich, created brand’s signature design – triangular bottle.
    • A single malt is defined as whisky made from malted barley, at a single distillery, aged for at least three years in either American oak or European oak casks, and bottled at a minimum ABV of 40%.
    • Two thirds of the flavour in whisky coming from the cask. As the American oak casks once held bourbon. The European oak casks held fine sherry, or like in case of Glenfiddich Grand Cru, barrels that have previously aged some of the world’s most exceptional sparkling wines.

    Glenfiddich Grand Cru


    Glenfiddich once again innovates and redefines flavours with its Grand Cru. This single malt has undergone a second ripening phase in French cuvée barrels. Hence, it is a remarkably rich whisky, which gains additional depth and balance through the second ripening.

    apple blossoms, sandalwood, sweet brioche and pear sorbet

    Glenfiddich Grand Cru has also a unique package design. Its black glass bottle with golden details, I think, flips back to the Roaring 20s – the time of Art Deco, Jazz, Charleston and Gadsby-like sparkling parties.

    Tasting notes:

    • Colour: Deep gold.
    • Nose: Intense aroma of apple blossoms, freshly baked bread and candied lemons.
    • Flavour: Vanilla oak, sweet brioche, pear sorbet and white grapes.
    • Long-lasting rich finish.
