Glenfiddich 19yo Age Of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish
From the word’s favourite malt came a series of releases that celebrates a range of European explorers. And for this release from 2011, it’s all about the Portuguese and importantly that very famous island that produces one of the most extraordinary fortified wines on earth: Madeira.
As one retailer puts it, “Plush mouth feel. Perfectly balanced. Some sweet spices and hints of barley sugar emerge. Subtle, drying aftertaste of honey and toasty malt.”
Official notes read, “Finished In Fine, Aged Madeira Wine Casks From An Independent Island Winery Dating Back To 1850 We Named This Expression, Glenfiddich Age Of Discovery. An Earthy, Bright Whisky With A Warmth That Fades To Long Sweetness. The First Time We’Ve Used Madeira Casks For Incredible, Rich Depth”.
