A Trio of Tastings #2 - An Exquisite Glenfiddich Tasting


SGwhisky Presents Part II of the Trio of Tastings - An Exquisite Glenfiddich Tasting

Let's dial the clock back to 2010. As an interpid young man I discovered malt whisky whilst in the UK, and one of the whiskies I tried there was Glenfiddich. I even had the chance to visit their sister distillery, Balvenie, whilst I was there. Glenfiddich has always been a great single malt, and has undoubtedly done a lot for the world of single malt scotch. As the largest-selling single malt in the world, it has done much to pave the way for single malts acceptance in the whisky-drinking world. But to many people who have become single-malt crazy, it always seem to fill that role of 'mass market' single malt. Is that really the case for its whole range though? True, the 12YO, 15YO and 18YO offer great value malts for those who want an easy-drinking single malt at a good price, but there are many, many special Glenfiddichs that are more than worthy to stand shoulder to shoulder with premium whiskies.

It was on the 22nd of March, therefore, that a few lucky whisky drinkers were treated to a great private tasting at the new and improved Auld Alliance hosted by Glenfiddich brand ambassadors Ian Millar and Matthew Fergusson-Stewart. The line up? Glenfiddich 21YO, Glenfiddich 30YO, Glenfiddich 29YO Single Cask and Glenfiddich 40YO. Did someone say only mass market?

Both brand ambassadors Ian and Matthew have a wealth of knowledge and took the opportunity to share their love for whisky with the crowd gathered that day. Guiding the crowd through all the whiskies that were tasted that day. So, here's the low down on these whiskies!

A Trio of Tastings #1: SGwhisky Proudly Presents - A Whisky and Food Pairing by Morrison Bowmore Global Brand Ambassador Gordon Dundas

On the 3rd of April 2014, SGwhisky was lucky enough to be amongst a select group of writers and whisky enthusiast to be invited for a special whisky and food event hosted by Morrison Bowmore. Named "A Rare Occasion", this even served as both a way to release their limited edition releases into the Singapore market and to also show how food and whisky pairings are now getting big and definitely worth looking at.
