This exceptional Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva is matured and mellowed in American oak casks for 21 years to reach a rich smoothness. It is then finished in hand selected Caribbean rum casks for a further four months maturation, infusing it with indulgent notes of toffee, fig and vanilla sweetness. These complex flavours are enhanced by a spicy warmth, oak and the merest hint of smoke on the palate whilst exquisite and rich aromas of fudge and hints of ripe banana intermingle luxuriously on the nose.
NOSE – Intense and sweet, floral hints of banana, figs and rich toffee.
TASTE – Initially soft, then brisk and vibrant, peppery, a touch of smoke, vanilla, ginger, lime, spices and new leather.
FINISH – Very long, warming and spicy.
