Glenfiddich Experimental Series 2017: Project XX and The IPA Experiment

Glenfiddich Experimental Series 2017

Founded in 1887 and still family owned, Glenfiddich is one of the household names when it comes to single malt whisky. 130 years on, the distillery is looking to push boundaries with the new Glenfiddich Experimental Series. The first two bottles in the series are The Glenfiddich IPA Experiment ($81) and the Project XX (pronounced ‘20’, $90). The former is the first single malt whisky to be finished in India Pale Ale (IPA) oak casks, bringing to the fore a sweetness bearing subtle flavours of hops, while Project XX blends 20 single malts into one whisky, developed by Glenfiddich malt master Brian Kinsman on the recommendation of 20 whisky experts from 16 countries.

Pick up both bottles now at DFS Singapore Changi Airport, and will be rolled out across the Travel Retail channel in 2017. A Travel Retail exclusive packaging format is planned for 2018.

When not downing frappes during her writing spiels, Megan can be found catching up on her favourite franchises or cajoling friends and family out for yet another Japanese dinner. An insane need to stay connected means you can reach her anytime – except on alternate weekends, when she’s found next to a TV screen, watching F1 cars go ‘round in circles.
