The Glenfiddich Pop Up Bar has been launched at The Lord Dudley Hotel.
The pop-up bar, featuring Glenfiddich The Original, will be open until Sunday 7 June (2015) where you will get a chance to try this extraordinary re-creation of the original 1963 Glenfiddich Straight Malt, which single-handedly established the entire single malt category as we know today. For the duration of the pop-up bar, Glenfiddich will be running bespoke tastings of the new whisky every hour from 6pm – 9pm until Friday and 12pm – 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Glenfiddich The Original Tasting Notes
Soft vanilla Oak, Toasted Biscuit, Fresh Pear & delicate spices
Inspired by the pioneering spirit of Sandy Grant Gordon, this historic expression is a recreation of the original 1963 Glenfiddich Straight Malt that started the single malt category.
Our Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, recreated the Original 1963 from our unrivalled collection of aged whiskies with the recipe uncovered from the Glenfiddich family archives.
While most whiskies today mature in oak, sherry casks were more prominent in 1963. The result, then and now, is a spirit contrasting many of our other expressions.
The aroma is floral with the hallmark Glenfiddich pear, followed by lively fruit notes, biscuity with a soft vanilla oakiness and deliciously dry finish.
NOSE: A fruity, floral aroma with the hallmark Glenfiddich hint of pear. Subtle oak notes and a youthful biscuity character.
TASTE: Pleasantly sweet with lively fruit notes and a soft vanilla oakiness. The flavors develop with the addition of a little water and reveal delicate spices, citrus and fresh baked oatcakes.
FINISH: Deliciously Dry.
