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)
Glenfiddich Fire and Cane Experimental Series #04
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.

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.
Exceptional. If it comes back in stock I will definitely buy again. A very diverse taste! This is not a classic speyside malt. I have NEVER tasted a Glenfiddich like this. Nose: Toasted oak, candied fruits and raw sugar Palate: Nice bright grassy peat up front balanced beautifully with green apples, honeysuckle and sweet vanilla oak Finish: Smooth long campfire embers with pepper and sweet cinnamon spice
