The Rich Flavors of Glenfiddich Reserva Rum Cask Finish

Glenfiddich is one of the world's most iconic single whisky brands and has been a leader in innovation for over 125 years. With its origins in Speyside, Scotland, the distillery produces a range of distinctive single malt whiskies that are renowned for their complex flavour profiles. The Glenfiddich Reserve Cask Finish range takes this pursuit of excellence to the next level by marrying whisky matured in American oak with casks from the Caribbean to create an extraordinary marriage of flavours.

The reserve cask finish range is comprised of three expressions: Glenfiddich Reserve Cask Finish 1L, 1937 Rare Collection and 21 Year Old Gran Reserva. The first expression is aged for four months in rum casks to add intense sweetness and fruitiness to the classic Glenfiddich character. The 1937 Rare Collection is a luxurious limited edition that has been aged for 21 years and finished in rum casks from Barbados, Jamaica and Guatemala. This expression is exceptionally smooth with notes of orange zest, burnt sugar, raisins and subtle spice. Finally, the 21 Year Old Gran Reserva has been finished in hand-selected Caribbean rum casks for an additional two months befre bottling – giving it a dry and spicy finish with sweet vanilla, flora, citrus zing, banana and intense toffee on the nose.

Whichever expression you choose, you can be sure you are getting an exquisite whisky that embodies all that makes Glenfiddich such a special brand – smoothness combined with complexity and intensity; tradition combined with innovation; excellence that can be savoured every time you take a sip.
