This is the 16th release of Glenfiddich's series of incredible 40-year-old whiskies, released each year with limited bottles available per release.
Our featured Glenfiddich 40 Year Old was bottled in 2019, having been previously vatted from a selection of casks chosen by the distillery’s Malt Master, as well as the saved remnants of previous year's 40 Year Old vatting. This continuous process is known as "remnant vatting" and contains whiskies that are at the very least, 40 years old. Glenfiddich is the only single malt Scotch whisky in the industry to use remnant vatting.
As a result, its uniquely rich and deep flavour was voted the "Best of the Best" single malt by Whisky Magazine in 2003, collected the Trophy at both the ISC and the IWSC in 2008 (the first time any whisky has won both in the same year) and Best Single Malt at the ISC in 2010.
The elegant bottle is offered in a handsome presentation case of the finest, hand-stitched calf-leather with embossed print work and an intricately designed lock and key.
Incredibly complex with notes of fruit cake, dates, raisins and stewed apples, this dram is great for those seeking an exceptional, silky smooth and luxurious taste.
Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!
