Age of Discovery […]

During my September visit to Dufftown, Scotland I bought a bottle of Glenfiddich 19 years old Red Wine Finish from a successful series of the Age of Discovery. This is the third edition after the Madeira Cask Finish and Bourbon Reserve. The creation of this single malt was motivated to celebrate HMS Beagle expedition. The ship sailed from Plymouth, England in 1831. Sailed around the World, landing on the east coast of South America, passing the Strait of Magellan, visiting the Galapagos Islands, Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. While the voyage Charles Darwin collected fossils, which allowed him to create the theory of evolution. The expedition lasted nearly five years. It is also worth mentioning that Darwin was passionate about wine.

During the trip I attended a dinner with the Glenfiddichs Master Blender Brian Kinsman, who signed the bottle for me. It was very nice.
