Glenfiddich 21 year old is one of the world’s most popular and most awarded single malts whiskey. It has aromas of orange zest and honey with a silky palate offering dominating flavors of cocoa and cinnamon. The finish is luscious with hints of citrus.
In the summer of 1886, with the help of his seven sons and two daughters, William set out to fulfill a lifelong ambition. Together they began building his distillery by hand, stone by stone. After a single year of work, it was ready and William named it Glenfiddich, Gaelic for “Valley of the Deer”. The legacy of Glenfiddich is a product of William’s passion, determination, and pioneering spirit.
Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family-owned and is now the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky, a true reflection of the founder’s integrity and innovative spirit, passed down through the generations.
It’s the details that matter. After maturing the premium whiskey for 21 years, the Malt Master adds even warmer and richer flavors by uniquely finishing this single malt in first-fill bourbon barrels that once contained rum from the Caribbean. This expression spends four months finishing in Gran Reserva barrels selected by the distillery’s Malt Master, adding to its distinctive and complex flavor.
The rum-soaked cask infuses the aged whiskey with a spicy warmth and indulgent vanilla and toffee sweetness, the character of the Caribbean shining through. This gives the smooth single malt whiskey a sumptuous sweet intensity that is both rich and creamy yet still retains the unmistakable character of Glenfiddich. Great for those expecting a very mature, traditional yet intriguing malt. Initially soft, then brisk, vibrant, and drying. New leather and oak nose combine with complex sweet, smoky and subtle ginger flavors in this classic Glenfiddich.
Perfect for every occasion – birthdays, Christmas, wedding, and Father’s Day, Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Whiskey can be enjoyed neat, on ice, with a mixer, or in a cocktail.
