Intense and sweet, floral hints of banana, figs and rich toffee.
Initially soft, then brisk and vibrant, peppery, a touch of smoke, vanilla, ginger, lime, spices and new leather.
Very long, warming and spicy.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Celebrating a special birthday? Here’s your bottle: one of the few Scotches finished in Caribbean rum casks. Most of the flavor in this bright amber spirit is on the finish, with its lingering Sherried-fruit, caramel and nuts. A splash of water further amps up the flavor. Pairs well with savory game dishes as well as fruit desserts. - K.N. (Dec 2011)

This exceptional 21 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky has been finished for four months in barrels that once contained rum from the Caribbean, infusing the whisky with a rich and indulgent toffee sweetness. At this age, Glenfiddich whisky develops into an exquisitely rich and creamy single malt with a luxurious vibrancy.
