Glenfiddich Vintage Reserve 1977

gfvr-bottleboxwhite.gifWe found out about Glenfiddich's bottling of their Vintage Reserve 1977 this week, and it's got our tastebuds all atwitter about thirty-plus year old scotch. We're hoping we get the opportunity to give this one a try, because every single tasting note we've encountered sings its praises. Here's the info we got from Glenfiddich:

The cask selected was a second or third fill European sherry butt (the age of the cask precedes the time when the distillery began keeping records on the number of times the casks had been used). In early 1977, Dan stripped and rebuilt the cask at the distillery's on-site cooperage before lightly charring the inside surface of the wood. It was then filled with new-make Glenfiddich spirit on the 7th March 1977 before being laid down to mature in one of the warehouses.

Over more than 31 years, the Glenfiddich single malt slowly interacted with the wood, developing the character and flavour that so appealed to the selection panel.

We likey the sound of that.

For tasting notes, check out The Spirit World and Cask Strength; to go right to the horse's mouth, head on over to Glenfiddich.
