Reportedly set to become a permanent fixture of the Glenfiddich stable is this beer cask-finished malt. Glenfiddich IPA Experiment is a no-age-statement whisky that’s been finished for three months in casks previously used to brew a bespoke IPA created by the Speyside Craft Brewery in Forres. The ale employed British Challenger hops for added fruitiness, which were deemed an appropriate complement Glenfiddich’s existing fruity character.
Glenfiddich Master of Malts, Brian Kinsman comments, “The result is a liquid with a zesty citrus note followed by soft, sweet vanilla and a hint of fresh hops. The innovative flavour comes from carefully hand-selecting the right malt whiskies to complement the extra hoppy notes.”
The whisky was made in collaboration with Seb Jones, an entrepreneurial Speyside brewer. Super limited.
