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

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.

Whisky Ramblings 301: West Cork 12 Year Old Port Cask Finish

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, tries an Irish single malt. The Irish West Cork Distillery Company was founded in 2003, but the first years were spent distilling in a shed with two small stills bought from a Swiss schnapps distillery. Since 2014 they moved to larger premises in Skibbereen. The 12 Year Old Port Cask Finish matured on bourbon barrels before it spent a few months on port casks.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 300: Cardhu 18 Year Old – Scotch Whisky News

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 300: Cardhu 18 Year Old

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky vlogger, goes back to basics. Around 70% of what is distilled at Cardhu goes into the famous Johnnie Walker blends. The other 30% hits the market as single malt. We’ll try the 18 Year Old, which is very popular in France, Portugal, Spain and Greece. This has everything to do with the local warm climate, where this fruity Speyside truly shines.
