The former 21 was finished in Cuban Rum casks, which were then switched to Caribbean Rum casks , as not to upset the American market … The Casks are also filled with rum again in the GF distillery prior to using them to finish the whisky
Nose: Rich , thick, a lot of the rum influence, with chocolate, rum,brown sugar.
Palate: Thick, and rich with chocolate, spice, quite buttery and mouth coating.
Finish :Long, coffee, cocoa, and milk chocolate.
A rich and very well made Rum finish. Not lacking complexity and very rewarding.
it was a very nice opportunity to sample a few Gfs, i had the 21 for the first time, and really liked it. If i had to pick one, I’d go with the 15 year old, which offers great value at ,£32 and a very sweet and delicious profile.
Glenfiddich may not be the sexiest brand around, but they do offer an interesting and a well made core line of whiskies.
