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

good

its whisky, whats not to like! good new taste, a pleasure to drink

20th June 2021

Good/ very good but not great whisky

I don't write a lot of reviews simply because English is not my first language, but i read a lot. I've decided to write one because this whisky got quite diverse ratings. I am fairly new to whisky/ey world and being a smoker (heavy) for around 20 years I can't give you all of tastes like connoisseurs (thanks google) may have. As I have mentioned before my taste buds are DEAD they can recognise only strong tastes. This whisky is advertised as a typical Spayside whisky with hint peat and hint of Rum taste. Let me start with smoke first. For a person who can't distinct difference between Highland and Speyside whisky on a first sip I can tell it is not more peated than Johhny Walker 12. From Rum casking I have only tried Jura Rum cask, and this one (Glen...F&C) is way better. It is smooth whisky. I am from country where spirits (vodka) rules, but the way of drinking (spirits) is based on shots, not to try to catch a flavours, just one sot and be ready for next one. This whisky is very smooth, goes nice and easy on your throat, but not give a typical to Island/Isley whisky aftertaste it is slightly peated but not overhealmy feeling of smoke/peat. Regarding Rum taste it gives you that sweeteness, which rum have. In my opinion it is a well ballanced whisky with unique mix. It is sweeeter than normal speyside/highland whisky and more peated than them, but comparing to Bow or even Ardmore it is not. I like sipping rum, but whisky kept in Rum barrels will never taste like rum (remember this) I drink my whisky neat. This is a good drum not the best one I had but will give you a different experience than normal speyside/ islay / rum taste. 86 or 87/100.

old jamaica chocolate

full of orange, raisins and spicy cloves, like that old chocolate bar Old Jamaica. Rum on the nose and fruit in the mouth

There can be only one, aye blossom!

It's as peaty as hell, and sweet thereafter! Love it! Boom!

Give it time

Started off tasting like silicone that's gone through the dishwasher with a lemon tab. But over time the subtle smokey notes overtake and the lemon soapy taste disappears completely. It's not an overly peated malt and comparing it to Islay whiskies is pointless because it's not. If you like Glenfiddich then it's a no brainer to try something different.

Meh.....like a watered down islay

Was expecting...well...more! Yes it has peat on the nose, a nice toffee apple and caramel taste but it doesn’t last long. Within only a few seconds it is gone. No complexity to it. It’s like a Bowmore but without the aftertaste. Bit disappointed.

Rich

A delicious smokey variation from the usual offerings from Glenfiddich. Hints of spice, caramel and peat make this a wonderful mouth feel and surprising offering. Pleasemake this a permanent addition to the GF lineup. Love it.

Boom!

Delicious with honey, caramel and toasted toffee notes . Charred rum barrels make this a distinct diversion from your typicla Glenfiddich offerings. This is an experiment that went well. Very well.

Poor

Not nice at all, very disappointing

26th January 2021

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.
