Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva – Caribbean Rum Cask

Speyside

Since 2000 Glenfiddich has become the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Owned by William Grant & Sons, the company will soon be unveiling a new look for their Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva.

Patiently matured for 21 years on site at the distillery in Dufftown, the Glenfiddich is a beautiful, traditional Speyside whisky, rich and ripe with the Glenfiddich signature notes. But rather than bottle it, as other distillers would, the family gave their Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, the freedom to add a sublime finishing touch.

Kinsman finishes the single malt in bourbon barrels seasoned with Glenfiddich’s own unique Caribbean rum, a secret recipe from a few topical islands that he knows will best imbue the staves with exactly the right flavours. This Caribbean rum finish awakens Glenfiddich’s Scottish whisky, rousing it with extra exotic notes of ginger, fig, lime and banana with a vibrant spicy toffee warmth, elevating it from something great to something extraordinary.

“Laying this expression down for 21 years in our warehouse leads to a remarkably intense flavour, and the liquid is infused with further complexity during its final few months. The Caribbean rum finish rouses a vibrant, spicy warmth within the whisky and draws out soft yet lively fruity notes on the palate. Adding an innovative final production method is testament to Glenfiddich’s continued quest for perfection. Our rum finish gives the liquid extra layers of intensity and an extraordinary twist that truly sets the 21 Year Old apart from other whiskies.”

Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich’s Malt Master
