Customer Rating

The return of the name Gran Reserva to Glenfiddich's 21yo after a few years under different titles is also accompanied by an upgrade to its packaging. It is still finished in rum casks for 4 months, but it now has a more elegant presentation, as befits its position towards the top of the distillery's regular range.

Tasting Notes

  • Billy

    Nose: Beeswax, honey, café au lait and buttered brioche - a French breakfast? Apples, pear drops, floral honeysuckle and a touch of orange on the side (the 5-a-day element perhaps).

    Palate: Sweet and rich with an oily mouthfeel. A good balance of polished oak and orchard fruit, along with some brulée sugar and gooey caramel.

    Finish: Apple, grainy pear, wood polish, some dark chocolate and a not unpleasant hint of cardboard.

    Comments: Sweet but balanced by both fruit and wood.

  • Tim F

    Nose: Rich with a brown sugar / toffee apple character. Also hints of milky coffee.

    Palate: Rich, with characteristic nuts and cooked fruit. As with the nose, the rum finish has lent greater weight and a noticeable sweetness. The oak is prominent without dominating the lively spirit. Dessert flavours – chocolate sponge cake, toffee pudding, crème brulée, even a hint of pannacotta.

    Finish: Medium length, doesn’t outstay its welcome.

    Comments: Another well-crafted, moreish dram. Not as overtly rummy as one might expect.

    A great dram,very smooth and long- lasting finish.Very different from the 18yo as this whisky is more sweet on the palate - chocolate,cherry,hony,vanila and quite spicey.Fantastic whisky!

    This was the first of six whiskys we tasted in an event hosted by brand ambassador Ray Pearson. Ray intentionally served the best first. One of the great single malts.

    In my opinion one of the best whiskys I tasted at Whiskeyfest NYC 2009. A very rich tasting single malt. Had to pick up a few bottles ASAP. This one will not disappoint!

    I found this whisky to be very smooth with just the right balance of flavours between the rum
