Glenfiddich "Malt Master's Edition" Single Malt is aged in traditional oak casks for a number of years, then transferred into the finest quality sherry casks for it's final years of maturation. This labor-intensive process differs from finishing in that the whisky is matured for several years in two different woods, not long-term aging in one type of wood, followed by a short period of time spent in another. This unique process results in an exceptional spirit with complex aromas of damp earth, whisky-soaked wood and dried fruit intermingling with vanilla and smoky embers. Zingy sherbet opens the palate, followed by spicy notes of plum, gingerbread, almond and wedding cake. Hints of caramel and banana emerge on the long finish.
