Raided Score: 96 Publication: Drinkhacker Excerpt: The texture is surprisingly creamy and silky, with a bright, citrusy finish — think lemon meringue pie put through the wood-fired oven.

Read Full Review Raided Score: 93 Publication: WhiskyCast Excerpt: The finish has a lingering touch of campfire smoke and touches of molasses and brown sugar along with hints of allspice, vanilla, and nutmeg that add complexity.

Read Full Review Raided Score: 88 Publication: Whiskey Raiders Excerpt: I like this, it’s very different. That said, it doesn’t blend particularly well. It’s fun and interesting, and I really enjoy that, but I don’t think it’s as good as it could be.

It felt as though a few drops of water would help but they actually killed it.

If it didn’t have that soap note it would be KILLER. Read Full Review Raided Score: 87 Publication: Whiskey Advocate Excerpt: Baked apple, sweet oak, and cinder toffee on the palate, with ashy smoke.

This is the fourth entry in Glenfiddichs Experimental Series. It takes peated Glenfiddich and matures it in rum casks.
Light brine and smoke. Faint ask. Sweet vanilla cream. Molasses. Faint lemon, pear. Caramel.
Medium mouth feel. Faint heat. Sweet molasses, light freshly baked bread. Faint ash, light pepper and smoke. Faint brown sugar. Fun and interesting, but oddly disjointed.
Short, sweet and bready, with a little rum funk, before pepper, salt and light smoke dash in.
I like this, its very different. That said, it doesn't blend particularly well. Its fun and interesting, and I really enjoy that, but I don't think its as good as it could be.
