Winter Storm follows on from the two previous experimental editions – Glenfiddich IPA and Glenfiddich Project XX. This time Glenfiddich malt master Brian Kinsman was inspired by ice wine. He experimented by maturing Scotch whisky in different ice wine casks to create the unique flavour.

We were invited to the Widder Hotel to taste this new Winter Storm whisky and enjoyed it with a menu specially designed to complement the whisky.

We started with a delicious Scottish salmon which was beautifully and simply served.

For the main course we had another Celtic speciality, Irish stew. Unlike the Irish Stew I grew up with as a child, this one did not contain boiled potatoes and carrots, but was served with a delicious couscous spiced with a little chilli and boiled rice.

To finish we had iced grapes and a delicious sorbet which we tasted alongside a sweet ice wine.

The Glenfiddich Winter Storm is a 21-year-old single malt finished for six months in French oak casks previously containing ice wine, a sweet white wine which is produced from grapes which froze on the vine, producing a very intense sweet taste.

The whisky is now available in limited quantities worldwide and is presented in a ceramic bottle.
