|Whisky||Glenfiddich Experimental Series #4 Fire & Cane|
not my favourite but not bad good vanilla notes
Glenfiddich experimental release number 9, made just outside Dufftown (not the home of Duff beer!). Matured in 'Latin rum casks' (because Cuban rum casks caused trouble in the US). 43% Mulligans bonfire tasting Nov 20
V pleasant, salty smokey, smoked rashers
Hotter than its 43%,light peat, freshness. A sour/bitterness at end
Need water! Add 3 drops to 5cl open up both smoke and toffee
An enjoyable experiment from Glenfiddich. Sweet and smokey, with a true campfire lingering.
Oak, Sweet smoke. Campfire, light apple. 21/25
Sweet and smokey. Warm linger. Charcoal smoke. 17/25
Warm and sweet with a lasting smokiness. 15/25
Peat and rum Nice combination
Netter, freundlicher und leicht torfiger Einsteigerwhisky. Wenn man jemanden an Rauch/Torf gewöhnen möchte ohne ihn mit den typischen Islays zu vergraulen.
Typische Speyside Fruchtnoten mit etwas Citrus, leichter Würze (Bratapfel) und Torf im Abgang.
very interesting nose and taste - little bit smoke and strong sweetness. but the age is too young - you can clearly feel the taste of not too noble spirits, a little bit harsh to drink
This is a nice whisky without question. It is good quality, of course, with well used rum casks to differentiate it from more "run of the mill" Glenfiddichs.
But I had hoped it would be a stand out for the range that provided something so wildly different from the usual and sadly it's not been able to achieve that. Inoffensive and perfectly drinkable though.
Super light nose here, some nice rummy sugar cane with a sort of simmering mango providing just the barest touch of smoke.
Super smooth and incredibly light. to be honest I was expecting (and hoping) for a lot more. There is that sweet tropical note but there is almost no discernable smoke that I can find and it's all quite watery.
Short to mid length with finally an amount of smoke the whole way, but certainly not enough to call it a smoky whisky as the rum influence is the absolute key player from start to finish.
well balanced and tasty.
peat and sugar in a pleasing way. rum is obvious but not overwhelming.
vanilla, sugar, tobacco, a little spicy.
little ashy, and rum sweet, with a hint of... i want to say mint, almost toothpaste.
süß-sauer mit einer ordentlichen Portion Rauch (zwischen Ardmore und Islay). Dahinter leichte Fruchtnoten.
Im Mund sehr süß und auch die Fruchtnoten werden präsenter. Dazu bildet sich eine schöne Vanillenote aus.
Im Abgang kommt erst ein Schwall heller Früchte, dann mit und mit eine leichte Eichennote, die sich in Schokolade äußert. Dahinter eine ganz leicht aschige Note.
Schöner Speyside Raucher, der etwas mehr Facetten in die Auswahl der rauchigen Schotten bringt. Der Rauch unterscheidet sich etwas vom klaren, sauberen Rauch der Highlander und dem maritimen, heftigen Rauch der Islay Vertreter. Vom Rum Fass hätte ich mir allerdings ausgeprägtere Fruchtnoten erwartet.
Blendet wunderbar mit dem Project 20 ;-)
Soft and gentle both on nose and palate. Mix between rum and unpeated scotch single malt.
I was looking forward to tasting this for a while. I'ts a good dram, but not as good as I was hoping. Somewhat disappointed. But still a good dram.
By far the best of the experimental series I have tasted. It's goal really is achieved. Nice balance in smokiness and fresh sweetness. When pouring some, expect a nice crisp whisky with decent bite to it, very oily as well
A bit to "sweet" for my taste, but absolutely drinkable. Smokey, with a long taste. Can drink it again, but would not buy it.
Delivers what is promised. Nice and easy.
äähhm.... bin zu rauchversäucht😂🙈... kaum rauch bemerkbar... und auch sonst ganz flach... irgendwie typisch glenfriderich.... braucht man nicht... ausnahme bleibt der projekt xx
spicy, sweet, smoky and bitter. it's super balanced. I get cinnamon, peat, bitter citrus (maybe grapefruit), green fruit, and a chewy toffee finish. Not bad overall
smells more like a bourbon, brown sugar and molasses, maybe some tropical fruit. taste started out sweet, dark fruits, developing a peaty smoke that fades into a sweet finish. works for me, but I like big flavors
Very smooth. Considering the price, one of the best "value for money" in my collection
smokey with a beautiful sweet, caramel, aftertaste.
so fine, easy
Really pleasant whisky, I liked this alot.
smoke, soft peaty nose, medium finish
smokey peaty malty
whiskey with smoke, no sweetness
small and short
Really nicely balanced. sweet, spice, smoke and fruit
Sweet and fruity with a gentle smoky spiciness. Apple pie with cinnamon, rum soaked raisins and a puff of smoke.
Smoked pear, vanilla apple pie, cider, green banana and a light soapy note.
Sweet, lightly spicy and a touch of smoke. Apple, cinnamon, creamy toffee and - tucked away in the back - notes of rum.
Lingering, with mocha, nutmeg and cooked apple.
I love the peat smoke, but other than that it is a typical Highland single malt to me. Not my preference.
first delicate peat smoke. after that caramel, fruit (pear) sweetness. medium long finish where the peatflavors return. Another great experiment from glenfiddich.
great offering by glenfiddich. subtle peat smoke. more earthy and heather. combined with a sweet pear and plum mid palate. medium finish
