GRAN RESERVA 21-YEAR-OLD SINGLE MALT Rum Cask Finish
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer GLENFIDDICH
Medium deep golden amber colour. Intense, gently honeyed, spicy, ripe plum nose with some vanilla-caramel-cedar notes. Dry, medium bodied, well structured, harmonious, slightly spicy, ripe plum-caramel flavours with a lingering, fairly crisp, vanilla-driven, very faintly smoky finish. Quite lovely with warm spicy, caramel-vanilla biscuit notes. Last appeared in Vintages (***/***+) on November 22, 2014 at $257.95. CSPC 981381

LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: Finished for up to four months in bourbon barrels that once contained rum, this single malt has impact and power. Rum toffee and ripe banana aromas whiff from the glass, followed by a taste that's deep, big and full with flavours of fig, vanilla toffee, brown spices, ginger and molasses. The finish is long and spicy. Score - 95 (Margaret Swaine, winealign.com, Oct. 30, 2012) Price $ 261.95
