Glenfiddich reveals The Original whisky this is a limited edition release from Glenfiddich; The Original is based on Hamish Robertson’s 1963 Straight Malt recipe, considered by many to be the world’s first single malt. Slightly sweet with notes of pear and vanilla.
An incredible collector’s piece for fans of Glenfiddich and those who appreciate the heritage of the Original Single Malt Scotch Whisky. In 1963, the whisky world changed forever when Sandy Grant Gordon, following in his family’s footsteps, decided to bottle the malt as Glenfiddich Straight Malt and market it beyond the UK.
A unique expression inspired by the 1963 Straight Malt, the first ever single malt to be actively marketed internationally, effectively establishing the entire single malt category we know today. Glenfiddich Original, created in keeping with an authentic recipe from the era and aged in sherry butts, offers a gentler experience, focusing more squarely on the grain.
Glenfiddich Original starts with aromas of nicely roasted malt, rounded out by subtle, restrained sherry notes. The nose offered almond and dried apples, plus the wood drives gentle coal fire notes. The body offers notes of coconut, dried banana, light citrus, and fresh hay on the finish.
