Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva Cuban Rum Finish

Nose: Golden raisins and grassy straw give way to vanilla and chocolate, before finishing with a nice licorice note.

Palate: Enters the mouth spicy and bold with a nice smoky edge. Sweet cherries give way to tobacco in the long finish.

Comments: When I tasted the 21 year old Glenfiddich it was aged in American oak for 21 years before being finished in Cuban Rum Barrels. Because of these Cuban barrels this scotch was unavailable for sale in the US. Since that time Glenfiddich has either changed their source for the rum barrels or just removed Cuba from their label, as it is now sold in the states as 21 year old Caribbean Rum Cask.
Glenfiddich employs different oak treatments in each of their age ranges, giving the 12, 15, 18 and 21 year old scotches a distinct style and flavor profile.
