Glenfiddich Experimental Series #01 India Pale Ale
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Speyside|
In our first groundbreaking experiment, Malt Master Brian Kinsman has proven that traditional whisky casks can still be seasoned in a pioneering way. Collaborating with a local Speyside craft brewer, Brian created a bold and zesty India Pale Ale beer to imbue our rich oak casks with extra hoppy notes. The experiment resulted in the first single malt Scotch whisky ever finished in craft India Pale Ale casks. Finished in bespoke craft India Pale Ale barrels, our pioneering new malt is imbued with unique zesty citrus notes and the subtle tang of fresh hops. The flavour comes with carefully hand selecting the right malt whiskies to complement the extra hoppy notes.
Sippable and smooth, this IPA-finished Scotch is bright and bursting with fruit. The first sips bring apples and hints of tropical fruit, which lead into a zingy grapefruit peel finish laced with warming vanilla and nutmeg.
