Scotland's historic Glenfiddich distillery today unveiled their latest creation, Glenfidich 50 year old, an ultra rare concoction that will only be available for purchase by the glass exclusively to three U.S. hotels. The lone bottle that will be available for personal purchase (better break out the Black Card) will be put up for auction at an event to be hosted simultaneously at New York's Mandarin Oriental, Miami’s Fontainebleau, and the Peninsula hotel in Los Angeles on December 7th. The taste is described as "initially sweet with a zesty orange marmalade and vanilla toffee, which then cascades through a wonderful series of layers: aromatic herbs, floral and soft fruits, silky oak tannin and hints of gentle smoke. The finish is exceptionally long with a touch of dry oak and the merest trace of peat." Link
