    DESCRIPTION

    Glenfiddich, founded in 1887 by William Grant and family-run to this day, is perhaps the most famous of all of Scotland’s single malts, and is equally famous for the rarity of its single cask bottlings. Recently, several members of The Whisky Shop team and one lucky customer, Neil Cromarty, joined Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, to select a single cask Glenfiddich to be bottled exclusively for The Whisky Shop. The cask they chose was a refill bourbon cask filled on 13th March 1992, the year that The Whisky Shop was founded. 1992 was the year the cold war officially ended; the year South Africans voted to end apartheid; the year Disneyland Paris opened and the year Betty Boothroyd became the first female Speaker of the House of Commons. And in 1992, the now gas-fired spirit stills at Glenfiddich were still coal-fired, so you will be tasting whisky history. This bottling is the very first cask to be released from the Glenfiddich Rare Collection; casks which are hand selected by Brian Kinsman because they exhibit a host of seductive aromas and flavours typical of older Glenfiddich. The Glenfiddich Rare Collection 1992 Single Cask is now available exclusively from The Whisky Shop and is limited to only 200 bottles.


    Matured in a refill bourbon cask distilled on the 13th March 1992, bottled at 55.6% abv. This whisky really shows off the Glenfiddich distillery character, with lots of sweet, fruity notes with apple and pear and just a hint of oak and spice. 

    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    The stills at Glenfiddich are the same shape and size as the three stills bought second-hand by William Grant when he built the distillery in 1886-87. As of November 2014, when three new stills were installed, there are 31 stills in two stillhouses - ten sets of three and one additional wash still to help reduce bottlenecks.
