Glenfiddich Winter Storm is a 21-year-old single malt finished for six months in French oak casks previously containing icewine from Peller Estate in Niagara. Icewine is a style of sweet wine that’s been produced from grapes that have frozen while still on the vine. When pressed, the frozen grapes deliver a more concentrated amount of sugar, resulting in a very sweet wine.
Ricky Christie, son of the distillery’s founder George Christie, partnered with Elixir Distillers to acquire some of the last remaining stock distilled at North of Scotland. Just six American oak casks from 1965 were recovered, and vatted together to bottle as a 50-year-old single grain at 40.4% abv. Just 1,500 bottles of the rare North of Scotland release are being made available globally, for £950 each.
You could sink into the nose of this single grain and be forever at peace, such is its comforting warmth and inviting aroma. It’s creamy and vanilla-rich, yet ever so slightly biscuity – think cookie dough ice cream. There’s a nuttiness in the form of marzipan that’s peppered with cloves. All in all it’s reminiscent of a Caribbean rum, Angostura in particular. The immediate texture is soft and comforting; it practically envelops you in a snuggly comfort blanket.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
