Glenfiddich Fire & Cane Bottling Note

Let the great experiment... Continue! Glenfiddich has added a new expression to its Experimental Series, unveiling Fire & Cane in mid-2018. Malt master Brian Kinsman has given some of the distillery's peated single malt a three-month finishing period in rum casks - but not just any old rum casks. He's selected rum casks from a variety of South American countries to finish this whisky, which ought to play nicely with the burly peat notes at its core.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Billowing soft peat notes, like distant smoke on the wind. Rich sweet toffee with zesty fresh fruit notes and spiciness.

Palate: Like a Highland peat campfire, with oak notes and toffee. Sharp green fruit, sweet baked apple and soft smoke.

Finish: Lingering smokiness and sweetness.

Glenfiddich Experimental Series - Fire & Cane Reviews

Not any better than regular Glenfiddich

This wasn't my favourite, but I'm not going to lambast it because I think that some people may like it. Whilst this is definitely drinkable and is a decent whisky, I wouldn't say it's worth the extra money vs a standard bottle of Glenfiddich. Yes there are some extra flavours, but nothing to blow you away.

Excellent

The best i have tried in a while.... Stunning!

Buy it!

This is excellent. There's a lot going on, proper smokiness with a really nice sweet taste. I would pay much more than the £40 quid you can buy it for. I'm just concerned about when they stop making this

excellent dram

A tale of 2 drams. On first hitting the palate I was struck by toffee apple sweetness, brown sugar etc. Shortly followed by a delicate smokiness. One of my favorite pours of 2020

Pleasant with good quality to price ratio

Initially, apples and pears, followed by ginger and cardoman spices. Tropical fruits arrive a little later, but are strong.
Toffee and caramel along with vanilla. Citrus fruits, lime and orange.
Peat is very very subtle indeed, but blends well. Medium mouthfeel.
43% ABV but may not be chill filtered. Probably barrier filtered.
Finish is orangey and spicy.

Enjoyably different

Didn't expect to enjoy the taste, quite a departure from the smooth, gentle sophistication of the aged examples of the marque, but enjoyable from the peaty heat on the first taste to the smooth sweetness as it goes down.

Find Better

Does a mere 3 months finishing in an alternate cask really allow enough time for the cask to impart it's flavor profile? Seems awfully short and gimmicky to me and a way to pawn off young whisky. Is Glenfiddich the most underwhelming distillery out there?

Better than cooking Glenfiddich - but at a price...

Weeelll it's all about the bottle these days isn't it? Piece in itself to be written there I think, this tinted glass that is becoming de rigueur ... Stick to clear or honest green - ok Black Bottle, you are excused. Anyway. Is it smoky, is it sweet? Who cares? It's drinkable. There's a hint of burnt sugar, a whisp of smoke, and as it is over 40% you can add a teaspoon of water to encourage it to flower. For me I'd take it over cooking Glenfidd any day, but, bottom line, it's only worth treating yourself to if it's heavily discounted. Enjoyable in it's own way, after all, a dram's a dram for a that - but heavy on the wallet...
