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

  • Excerpt: Oh let’s have some fun! Even if this little Glenfiddich may lose you a bit at times, while being less sweet that I had thought.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The palate was disappointing; the nose was more promising (if only slightly). It felt as though a few drops of water would help but they actually killed it.

  • Excerpt: On the whole, I enjoy the Glenfiddich Fire and Cane; I like the sweet and smoky combo and it hearkens back to the old Glenfiddich Vintage Reserve Peated release which I love. If it didn’t have that soap note it would be KILLER.

  • Excerpt: Baked apple, sweet oak, and cinder toffee on the palate, with ashy smoke. Peppery sweet peat, rum, and brittle toffee in the relatively short finish.

  • Intro:

    This is the fourth entry in Glenfiddichs Experimental Series. It takes peated Glenfiddich and matures it in rum casks.

  • Nose:

    Light brine and smoke. Faint ask. Sweet vanilla cream. Molasses. Faint lemon, pear. Caramel.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Short, sweet and bready, with a little rum funk, before pepper, salt and light smoke dash in.

  • Overall:

    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.

  • Score:

    5
