RETAIL | I’ve always been a fan of Glenfiddich whisky. In fact the first ever bottle of whiskey that I purchased as a treat to myself when I turned 18, was Glenfiddich 12 Year Old.

These days my whiskey collection has plenty of great bottles, and there’s always a bottle of one of Glenfiddich’s range amongst it. I was running low on my last bottle last month, which conveniently coincided with this year’s Virtual Travel Expo 2020. As part of the expo, the team at William Grant & Sons sent me a bottle of the recently launched Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Year Old.

Unlike several of the other spirits that I sampled during the expo, which I used to make delicious cocktails, I enjoyed this one the way it’s meant to be enjoyed – straight (or on the rocks if you prefer). It’s a rich whisky, intense in flavour thanks to 23 years of maturation in American and European oak casks, before being finished in rare French cuvée casks.

The whisky pours dark gold, with a nose of apple blossom, freshly baked bread, and candied lemon. When the liquid passes through your lips, it’s a taste of rich vanilla oak, sweet brioche, sandalwood, pear sorbet, and white grape. You can find it at travel retail and other select retailers across the globe.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
