The specs are worth celebrating — twenty-three yo Glenfiddich finished in French Cuvée oak casks.

The famous Glenfiddich Distillery was founded by Scotch Whisky legend William Grant in 1887 with used equipment acquired from the Cardhu Distillery. Remaining in the hands of the Grant family to this day, Glenfiddich is the biggest selling single malt whisky worldwide and can be found in quality pubs from Indonesia and Beijing to Morocco and Los Angeles. Not only are they a top producer of premium single malt by volume, they are a much honored and loved go-to Speyside of choice for millions of raving fans.

If you know your Single Malts, the first thing that you will notice is the striking black glass bottle — so remarkably unlike anything else Glenfiddich has done. Glenfiddich Grand Cru is indeed 100% their signature Single Malt aged a crazy twenty-three years. Most of the Spirit spent that time in ex-Bourbon casks, and a smaller portion in ex-Sherry casks. The Spirit is married and then finished in Cuvée oak casks from Champaign, France. The entire presentation from bottle to glass is worthy of a celebration.

Smartass Corner:
Most French Champaign producers ferment their Wines in stainless steel tanks — and seriously, there’s nothing wrong with that. But a few of the higher-end producers used large oak casks to bring a round, creamy palate with a dash of vanilla. We don’t know where Glenfiddich’s casks came from, but Veuve Cliquot, Bollinger, and Krug use this technique.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
This massive success of Glenfiddich was managed by just 120£. That is the cost of building the distillery in 1886.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
