A most special and limited edition, Glenfiddich Cask of Dreams Scotch Whisky has quite the story to go with its exceptional drinking experience. Only 11 new American oak barrels were taken to various US cities, where Scotch fans inscribed them with their hopes, dreams and signatures. Then it was back to Scotland, where the barrels were filled with a blend of Scotch, 14 years and older. For a hint at the results, we turn to more refined palates than ours… How about “slightly fruity and sweet with golden raisin, dried apricot, and soft vanilla. In the center of the nose, a solid oak spice with a subtle undertone of malted barley. The entry starts off more sweet and fruity, with dried apricot, golden raisin, and vanilla. It quickly transitions in the mid palate from fruity and sweet to savory and spicy. The oak notes begin to emerge along with ginger and black pepper. There’s also a nice salinity in the mid palate along with a subtle char note and a flash of rancio. The spice ramps up at the end of the mid palate and leads to a very long, very spicy finish.” A mouthful! Cask of Dreams is 97.6 proof, $99, hard to find, and no doubt…well worth it.
