Proof66 Notes


Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix is a scotch commemorating a collapse of the distillery warehouse's roofs in the winter of 2010 from heavy snow. These casks were aged not in the depths of warehouses but in the wintry night air. From these casks, the Snow Phoenix scotch was bottled. It is a blend of various vintages, some of which are extremely old, and from a variety of aging (bourbon casks, sherry etc.). Obviously, it's a very limited edition.

The 2011 Wine Enthusiast review declared the Snow Phoenix would be a "knock out with aged cheeses."

About the Producer:

Glenfiddich Distillery was built with the "bare hands" of William Grant and his nine (nine!) sons in 1886. The distillery is independently owned by William Grant & Sons who also own the labels for Balvenie, Grant's blended scotch, Hendrick's Gin, and are also co-owners of the Highland Brands, which include The Famous Grouse, The Macallan, Highland Park, Black Bottle, and Gloag's London Dry. Today, Glenfiddich is the best-selling brand of single-malt scotch in the world. Glenfiddich is pronounced with a hard "-ck-" sound at the end like the "ick" in "icky." The word is translated from Gaelic as "valley of the deer."

honestly, I expected this whisky to be mostly marketing hype...but it turned out to be an amazingly well balanced single malt, with a long finish. Wish I still had some...
