Grant & Sons releases Madeira-finish single malt

The Scottish distillery William Grant & Sons has just released a new product.

Glenfiddich Age of Discovery -- Madeira Cask Finish is a 19 year old single malt whisky. It was matured in new and refill oak casks, then re-racked into casks that were used for maturing Madeira, a sweet fortified wine.

The whisky is presented in a black glass bottle with a red cartouche compass, inside a display box decorated with illustrations that show the travels of Portuguese explorers.

The company says the Madeira cask finish celebrates the pioneering spirit of Portuguese explorers in the 15th Century. Madeira is the name of a North Atlantic archipelago and is an autonomous holding of Portugal.
