“Only by unlearning what we know and collaborating with like-minded mavericks can we try new things, experiment, push whisky boundaries and challenge traditions.” - Malt Master Brian Kinsman
Project XX (pronounced twenty) is the second bottling in The Experimental Series; part of Glenfiddichs’ drive to create a range of ground-breaking single malts. The No.2 experiment of the series took place privately at their Conval warehouse. Shrouded in secrecy, Malt Master Brian Kinsman invited 20 whisky experts from around the world to select any expression of their choosing from the thousands of stacked casks. The final 20 chosen malts, matured in everything from port pipes to virgin bourbon barrels, have created an unusual, innovative and unexpected whisky. The Project XX experiment was so shrouded in secrecy that the whisky experts taking part didn’t even know about it until half way through the process.
95.5 Points (Superstar whiskies which give us all a reason to live) - Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2018
“Complex. Not just complex but crafted as there doesn’t seem to be a single strand out of place. I very much approve… and love! It has been a long time since I have encountered distillery produced malt this exceptionally well rounded and balanced. All 20 involved should take a bow; this is Glenfiddich as it should be… xxcellent in fact!” - Jim Murray
Tasting Note: Deep golden hue. Warm character of a classic Glenfiddich - hints of apple, summer fruits and ripe pear. Multiple personalities are revealed with sweet candyfloss, cinnamon spice, almonds and rich port tannins with the odd whisper of liquorice.
