MOST INTERESTING NEW SINGLE MALT

GLENFIDDICH IPA EXPERIMENT

Given the scotch industry’s penchant for snaffling spent barrels from the wider drinks world to finish its wares, the most surprising thing about Glenfiddich’s IPA Experiment is that it is a first.

Kudos – perhaps the best ideas are indeed the most obvious. Though Glenfiddich IPA’s praise has not been universal, with pious bloggers suggesting it a product born of marketing, rather than true innovation. One had it down as a primitive whisky – regressing from a finished dram back into its wash back.

Disagreeing with bloggers is reason enough to make this one of our launches of the year, but let’s add that, to us, beer and whisky are a happy marriage – in barrel and in mouth.
