Rumour: Glenfiddich Grand Cru

William Grant & Sons prepares a 23YO wine cask finish. Nicknamed Grand Cru, it hints at the use of wine casks from a reputable vineyard. Grand Cru is a regional wine classification and the top appelation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) in wine regions such as Burgundy and Alsace.

Neither one of the labels hints at the origin of the casks. So we'll have to wait for the full story behind this whisky.

Until the distillery sends out a press release, this whisky should be considered a rumour…
