    Manhattan Project: Experiment #33

    Written by

    Location: Quinto la Huella, EAST Hotel, Miami, USA

    Date: June 2017

    Price: $19.05 (Listed at $15.00 then came tax, service charge etc)

    Recipe: Did not see but they asked which Bourbon.... I chose Makers Mark

    Garnish: Maraschino cherry

    Served: Up

    Comments: Did not stand out for such an expensive version.  Maybe not the best choice of bourbon for a Manhattan (no rye content).

    Glenfiddich Project XX

    This 47% ABV expression is the second in the Glenfiddich Experimental Series.  The XX refers to the 20 brand ambassadors who selected the casks that went into this bottling.  The nose has sweet malt, digestive biscuits, vanilla, brown sugar and cooked fruits.  Fresh baked fruit crumble with custard.  The taste is sweet with burnt sugar, citrus peel and spices.  There is more spice and black pepper in the finish and some chewy oak notes.   With water I get more brown sugar and even some milk chocolate notes.  Complex and delicious I really enjoyed this and can be submitted as further evidence that Glenfiddich is very often and unfairly overlooked by many malt fans.
