Glenfiddich Grand Cortes XXII Rare Sherry Cask Finish 22 Year * (43.7%) ~AA



Grand Series Collection last year with the launch of Gran Cru, a 23-year-old whisky finished in French oak cuvée casks. The experimental range seeks to push the boundaries of single malt.

The latest addition to the “innovative” line is Gran Cortes XXII, a 22-year-old whisky finished in rare Spanish Palo Cortado Sherry casks. The single malt is named after the grand palaces of Spain.

Glenfiddich malt master Brian Kinsman visited wineries in Andalucía to explore the world of Spanish winemaking for the second Grand Series whisky.

Kinsman said: “We researched age-old processes, testing finishing times and maturations to find the perfect composition of character, depth and aroma. After careful experimentation, we found our match.

“The 22-year-old Glenfiddich malts from our old-age collection were finished in Palo Cortado oak casks. The alchemy that takes place in the oak casks pushes the boundaries once again. The finished product is a truly unique whisky with a dark red hue and distinctive character. It’s an unforgettable spirit to mark the most special occasions.”

The resulting whisky has ‘rich and intense layers of deep sweetness’, with an aroma of dates, dark chocolate and raisins. The palate offers oak, sweet vanilla and marzipan, followed by citrus and fruitcake on the finish.

Region: Speyside

Nose: Vibrant and lively with an abundance of toasty oak sweetness. Reminiscent of a French pâtisserie, freshly-baked Tarte Tatin and buttery choux pastry.

Palate: Deep, velvety smooth and indulgently sweet. Café crème with soft brown sugar and a hint of spice.

Finish: Very long-lasting sweet oak.
