Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix Single Malt Scotch Whisky
In 2010, twice a winter’s worth of snow fell on distillery's warehouse roofs in just a few weeks. In the most remote part of our Distillery, bearing the weight of a herd of elephants, a few collapsed. The bright winter sky poured in, and standing amongst precious casks, Glenfiddich's Malt Master was inspired to mark this moment in history. Selecting and marrying the finest Oloroso and American oak casks from warehouses struck by heavy snow, Snow Phoenix limited expression was born. Creamy and vibrant on the nose, with honey and chocolate on the palate. And sherry notes mellowing into a long finish.
Color: Gold with bright copper highlights.
Nose: Creamy vanilla mixes with vibrant apple and pear, complemented by soft blossom.
Taste: Wild flavors – apples roasted in campfire embers, sweetened with heather honey and accompanied by a little chocolate. Rich and complex with a trace of burned sugar, coffee, and wood smoke.
Finish: Exceptionally long. Austere sherry notes mellow into satisfying sweetness.
