21yo 70cl tile2

Glenfiddich

21 YEAR OLD

VANILLA, SWEET TOFFEE, FIG
ABV 40%, 70CL

Patiently matured for 21 years on‐site at the distillery, it is an exquisite, traditional Speyside whisky, rich and ripe with our Glenfiddich signature notes. But rather than bottle it, as other distillers would, our Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, hand picks selected barrels and adds a sublime finishing touch.

By finishing our 21 Year Old in Caribbean rum casks it awakens the liquid, rousing it with extra exotic notes of ginger, fig, lime and banana and a vibrant spicy toffee warmth, elevating it from something great to something extraordinary.

Raised in Scotland. Roused by the Caribbean

  • 21 YEARS IN OUR OLDEST WAREHOUSES

    Our 21 Year Old is finished in one of our oldest, most intimate stone-built warehouses. The air is thick with maturing aromas and weighty oak casks are stacked on earthern floors.

  • REFINED CARIBBEAN RUM FINISH

    Our Malt Master selects only the best Gran Reserva rum casks from the Caribbean, to create a luxurious dry and spicy finish. A perfect complement to our whisky’s fruity signature notes. It is truly a whisky that is raised in Scotland and roused by the Caribbean.

  • THE WAREHOUSEMEN’S VALINCH

    Our highly experienced warehousemen are the eyes of our whisky. They use a valinch, a copper tool which draws samples of whisky from casks and marrying tuns. They carefully check the samples and decide from their hues,
    if it is ready for our Malt Master’s nose.
