Glenfiddich IPA Cask Experimental Series #01 Single Malt Scotch Whisky [700ml]
One of the first pair of entries in Glenfiddich's Experimental Series, Project XX started as a whisky created by the distillery's 20 brand ambassadors – each selected a cask and master blender Brian Kinsman combined them to create the template for this 47%, non-chill-filtered whisky. It's a mix of sherry casks, bourbon casks and more, with a rich and spicy character.
Nose: This smells like a bit of a beastie, lots of woody spicy notes, toffee and orange peel. Clearly some serious cask action going on here.
Palate: Lots of wood: cloves, cinnamon and vanilla with tingly wood tannins, all wrapped up with some sweet fudge notes.
Finish: Long and layered, with lingering notes of espresso and dark chocolate.
