Glenfiddich Malt Master's Edition
70cl / 43%
Sherry Cask Finish
- Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
Glenfiddich's Malt Master Brian Kinsman was the first to double-mature a Glenfiddich whisky in two different casks (although shorter finishing periods in more than one kind of casks has of course been done several times before). This whisky has been matured for some time in traditional oak casks before finishing its maturation in sherry casks.

Bouught as gift for my dad and he loved it
A fairly simple whisky if I''m honest as Miko say below, it feels ''safe'' and not as complex as I hoped.
I was very surprised to the poor quality of this dram, I mean come on Glenffidch this is supposed to be your Malt masters dram what does this say ?. It''s flat flavour is just bad it is over sherried and shows if the quality of the previous barrel owners sherry and not the whisky. It''s just over powering the whisky flavour and not letting through any of the best characteristics you get of a Fiddich in all their drams. I have tasted sherry monsters before and love them but this has no depth and you can''t even tell what type of sherry was used as the amalgamation of the flavour doesn''t carry through at all. I tried adding some water and they was a little of that vanilla honey banana caramel Glenfiddich charter coming through but adding more water just dround out and diluted it to the point of it been undrinkable. My view is this is not worth the money and your money would be better spent on a different Fiddich finished dram and that I''m so disappointed and also if I wanted some sherry I would buy some sherry but I wanted a whisky finished sherry and not a whisky that shows of the sherry if you get that !
Nice, smooth sherried "wedding cake" theme like Akis pointed out. However, it's very frustrating to notice that Glenfiddich has all resources and skills to make this outstanding malt, but they just won't do it. They are playing safe. This is supposed to be Malt Master's edition!
One of the GF around. An outstanding achievement from GF, When opening the bottle, i could smell the aromas oak, sherry. wedding cake.
