Established nearly 200 years ago, the Glenfiddich Distillery is one of a number founded by legendary distiller William Grant and is currently among the world's best-selling single-malt brands. As one of the first distilleries to shift their focus on single malts as opposed to the much more prevalent blends of the time, they were able to create their own distinct style which not only captured the tastes of the average drinker but also those of critics and connoisseurs resulting in the brand becoming one of the most-awarded particularly in the prestigious International Spirits Challenge.
Launched in 2002 to serve as the pinnacle of their core range, the Glenfiddich 21 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky seamless combines the rich and intense character of Speyside Scotch with the sweet tropical taste of the Caribbean through the tried and tested process of cask-finishing. Distilled exclusively from malted Scottish barley, this Scotch spends its initial maturation in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon barrels. After spending 21 years in these casks, the whiskies are then tapped and married before undergoing a 4-month polishing period inside rum barrels hand-selected by Malt Master Brian Kinsman before being cut with pure water from the nearby Robbie Dhu springs and finally bottled.
On the nose, this dark gold Scotch conveys a powerful aroma of banana, figs, manuka honey, rich toffee, sweet vanilla, floral notes, oak, and new leather. This is then immediately followed by a sweet, gentle, and vivacious palate of ripe fruits, more honey and vanilla notes, citrus, malt, ginger, wood spice, oak, and smoke before neatly coming together into very long and warming finish accented by hints of bittersweet orange marmalade and fading spice.
A recipient of the gold medal at the 2019 International Wine and Spirit Competition, as well as numerous other awards, the Glenfiddich 21 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is one bottle that definitely deserves a place on any whisky lover’s liquor shelf making it a great gift choice for friends and family regardless of the occasion. So don’t think twice about sending one their way today either as a celebratory present or as an extra-special token of your esteem and let them enjoy its splendid tastes to their heart’s content.
