A limited edition release selected from three warehouses which collapsed on the 7th January 2010, due to adverse weather conditions (a rather heavy snow storm).
Bottled without an age statement, Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix has been highly acclaimed and includes Oloroso and American oak casks from warehouses ranging from 13 to 30 years old.
The Concentration of world class distilleries that exist along the banks of the river Spey cannot be overstated. Brands such as Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Macallan and Aberlour are no stranger to anyone but these are only some of the many distilleries that produce more than 60% of all of Scotland’s single malt whisky. The taste profile of speyside whisky can be classified as 2 different styles. The light, grassy malts from distilleries such as The Glenlivet and Glenfiddich and the rich, sweet big bodied taste of Macallan and The Glenfarclas. The older speyside whiskies can now demand huge prices when they appear for sale with recent highlights of the Macallan selling in excess of $1.3 Million. Most collectors are not spending that sort of money but they still are going over any estimates that are put on them.
