Think you know peaty whisky? Think again. The fourth in Glenfiddich's much-admired Experimental Series is a marriage of their rarely-seen peated whisky with unpeated bourbon-aged single malt, all of which is finished in Latin rum casks.
The result is a surprisingly sweet and smoky dram that blends rich caramel and spice notes with fresh green fruit and soft pillowy smoke. A worthy continuation of the series that's very interesting to pair with different types of food – try it with spicy sausage or ice cream, for example.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting notes from the producer
Billowing soft peat notes, like distant smoke on the wind. Rich sweet toffee and zesty fresh fruit notes and spiciness.
Like a Highland peat campfire, with oak notes and toffee. Sharp green fruit, sweet baked apples and soft smoke.
Lingering smokiness and sweetness.

A birthday present for my Father quick easy delivery will await him to taste then update the review...
Tasted by itself, this is ok. Put it head to head with something like Ardbeg Drum or Balvenie Caribbean Cask and it's failings come into sharp relief. Very weak in comparison to even the similarly priced Balvenie
Just tried it last night. It was excellent. Very smooth. Loved the Smokey oak flavor.
Tasted it today Nov 8th after I came home from work ( wife bought it, and it was in a cold car all day)' I directly noticed a faint "dark" Rum scent and I had a good sip rolled it around in my mouth and drew breath in to "air" it. I did notice a medium peatyness which wasn't unpleasnt at all. it clings nicely to the glass and it holds its flavours for a decent amount of time.. I let the rest adjust to room temperature and low and behold!! the Rum characteristica was even stronger taste wise but the scent was clearly more peated.Then I tried it with DARK choclate and the bitterness of the choclate vis a vis the rum flavour was a match in heaven.( haven't tried it with cheese yet but that will come and I will leave a review of that experience too.So it was/is a VERY nice surprise. I've had a lot of those port and sherry casked ones in the past,but they are becoming a tad of a "Bakers dozen" Same goes for Burbon casked ones. But this is a thing I think should be a "base" in the Glenfiddich repetoire.
