Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Year is the first in the Grand range released by the brand. It is a single malt Scotch whiskey that has aged for 23 years in a combination of American and European oak before it finishes for up to 6 months in selected cuvée wine casks. These French oak wine casks formerly held fermenting wine which would ultimately become Champagne and they give the Glenfiddich 23 its trademark velvet texture and opulent finish.
Glenfiddich 23 is a remarkably rich whiskey with intense flavors. It is the only Glenfiddich Single Malt to undergo initial aging in American and European oak casks before being moved over to rare French cuvée oak casks. This is where it gets its beautiful oily, waxy mouthfeel and which makes it just perfect for celebrating special occasions.
Perhaps one of the best whiskeys you’ll ever have the pleasure of tasting, Glenfiddich 23 qualifies as a Scotch, because it is a whiskey made and aged at least three years in Scotland. Made from 100% malted barley, the Glenfiddich 23 Grand Cru whiskey comes in a sheer black bottle encased in a dark black box with golden firework design.
The remarkably rich whiskey, already intense in flavor thanks to long is finely finessed with influences from French cuvée casks.
Glenfiddich 23 price in Nigeria ranges between ₦110,000.00 to ₦145,000.00.
