The Glenfiddich Project XX is the second addition to the Glenfiddich Experimental Series. The XX doesn’t stand for 20 years, but according to the distilery Brian Kingsman (master blender at Glenfiddich) invited twenty ambassadors from around the world to select their favourite cask from the Conval warehouse. After the twenty casks were chosen, Brian married all twenty malts together. The final result is the Glenfiddich Project XX.
This Glenfiddich is a no age statement whisky and is bottled at 47% ABV.
Glenfiddich Project XX tasting notes:
Nose: A very pleasant and gentle nose to begin with. Dried fruit, honey, orange peels and a hint of pears. This all is followed by short bread or biscuits. Gentle flowers too. This is more like a Glenfiddich nose than the IPA.
Taste: Dark chocolate, butter, and slightly peppery. Honey and dried fruits again. Warm winter spices and oak. Plums. A thick mouthfeel, it tastes a little like syrupy. Raisins and figs.
Finish: The finish is quite long and has a little bit of a bitter touch. Malty and spicy as well.
This is quite pleasant and enjoyable. Especially the nose is very good. Don’t expect a very complex dram, but more like a nice daily dram. This really tastes like a Glenfiddich dram. I liked this better than the IPA.
