Discover Four Decades – Layer Upon Layer
Time, an abstract entity, accumulates in layers. It is visible in a rocky valley’s many solid strata; Laid down over millennia, worn smooth by wind and rain. And with layers comes complexity. Which is why Glenfiddich 40 is so much more than an exemplary single malt. This superlative whisky is made through remnant vatting, a pioneering process in which Glenfiddich Malt Master carries one batch over, time and again, and marries it with the casks selected for each subsequent release. Cask after cask, season after season, it absorbs the evolving flavours of the passing years. Melding the many liquid layers of its four-decade formulation to create an extraordinary expression. It is time, age, experience accumulated. Physical. Tangible. Layer upon layer of maverick thinking, made manifest.
Nose: A deeply layered expression of dried fruits, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and ripe black cherries. Completed with subtle waves of gentle wood smoke, polished leather and cloves.
Taste: A luxuriously full and silky smooth taste, with memories of past releases in every nuanced note. Evolving from deep dried fruit notes to rice fruitcake, dates, raisins and stewed apples, before giving way to dry oaky notes, with subtle hints of bitter chocolate and peat.
Finish: Complex, memorable, and exquisitely long-lasting.
