Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix 2010 Limited Edition Bottling Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 47.6% Vol. - special bottling of a remarkable Speyside single malt!
The Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix Speyside single malt scotch whisky was matured in selected Spanish oloroso sherry and American bourbon casks and was bottled in the year 2010 on the occasion of a dramatic event in the distillery s history in a limited edition without chill filtration. The Snow Phoenix single malt is intended as a reminder of the winter of 2009/2010, when so much snow fell within a short period of time that on the evening of 7th January 2010, parts of the roofs of four warehouses collapsed under the heavy weight of the snow. Malt Master Brian Kinsman and the distillery team recovered the casks of varying ages from the affected warehouses at temperatures as low as -19° C and skilfully married the best of the Oloroso and American oak casks affected by the roof collapse to create the Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix single malt.
The result is a unique Speyside single malt with a special history, which also convinces with its taste and quality - creamy and particularly lively on the nose, complex with hints of caramelised sugar, coffee, woody smoke and elegant sherry notes with a particularly long finish. The presentation is in a valuable metal tin with a leaflet where the story of the Snow Phoenix is told. The Snow Phoenix has been dedicated to the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team and a part of the sales proceeds has been donated to the organisation for their great work.
