Glenfiddich created the third expression in their Age of Discovery Collection to commemorate the 1831 voyage of the HMS Beagle. The Beagle traveled around the globe and landed on the east coast of South America, allowing Charles Darwin to collect fossils that would lead to the development of his famous theory of evolution.
Aged 19 years, this edition is finished in oak casks that were once used to produce the complex, velvety red wines of South America. Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, all of which impart their own unique set of flavour into the whisky. The result is an extraordinarily rich single malt with exceptional smoothness, complemented by warm, spicy notes.
