Glenfiddich is launching a limited edition Glenfiddich Toasted Oak Reserve 12 Year Old across the UK for Christmas.
Distributed by First Drinks Brands, the new product is another variant to be added to the extensive Glenfiddich single malt range.
The whisky was created using hand-selected casks whose toasted interior had released a distinct amount of vanillin from the wood leading to a rich, gently spiced, sweet vanilla aroma from the whisky.
The 195-litre barrels, which had been used to mature American whiskey before being shipped to Scotland and filled with Glenfiddich, are the smallest standard casks used to store Scotch whisky.
After the contents of the casks were vatted together, the single malt was refilled into casks for a three-month marrying period to ensure consistency throughout the small batch production prior to bottling.
Glenfiddich malt master David Stewart said: "In recent years, we have come a long way in understanding the impact wood has on the final flavour of maturing spirit. Glenfiddich Toasted Oak Reserve reflects this knowledge as only casks that give the perfect vanilla and oak flavour to the spirit have been selected for this bottling."?
The range of single malt scotch whiskies includes the Glenfiddich Special Reserve 12 Year Old, Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15 Year Old, Glenfiddich Ancient Reserve 18 Year Old, Glenfiddich Gran Reserva 21 Year Old, Glenfiddich 30 Year Old and a number of rare whiskies and limited editions.
The scotch range recently won four Gold Medals at the International Wine & Spirit Competition.
