Glenfiddich may be the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch, but that is not the only reason for the champagne toast at a recent Glenfiddich event. Appropriately held at one of the finest French restaurants in Dallas, Bullion, Glenfiddich launched Grand Cru, an exclusive expression that has been matured for 23 years and elegantly finished in French Cuvée casks. It is a masterpiece, bringing together the most superior liquids from both Scotland and France.
The taste is exquisite with notes of rich vanilla, sweet brioche, sandalwood, pear sorbet and white grape. Already matured in American and European oak casks, the French cuvée cask finish adds the final layer of luxury and opulence. The $300 sleek black glass bottle comes in a magnificent black and gold box, a keepsake in and of itself.
Bullion embodies the Glenfiddich Grand Cru spirit with its contemporary, elegant furnishings, lavish glittery gold accents, and culinary extravagance. Hosted by Glenfiddich Ambassador Dave Allardice, the invite-only evening began with champagne (an obvious choice) and an assortment of heavenly French hors d’oeuvres from oysters with a champagne mignonette and steak tartare to caviar-drizzled potato and Gruyère cheese puffs. The grand finale was the dram of Glenfiddich Grand Cru, worthy of a standing ovation.
