Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 302: Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Winter Storm

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, tries a hyped malt from one of the world’s most famous distilleries. The third release in Glenfiddich’s Experimental Series – the Winter Storm – took the shelves by storm (see what I did there?) and sold out in a matter of days. A second and even third batch had to be produced. What makes Winter Storm special is the fact that this Glenfiddich matured for 21 years on bourbon casks before getting a finish of three months on casks that previously held ice wine. Peller Estates from the Canadian Niagara-on-the-Lakes (that’s right, near the famous waterfalls) harvests the grapes for this wine at -10° Celsius in the moonlight. This is not just folklore, it’s when the grapes have their highest concentration of sugars. The Glenfiddich malt spend three months in these casks to become the subtle single malt that has proved so popular.
