The return of the name 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 four months, but now has a more elegant presentation, as befits its position towards the top of the distillery's regular range.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Beeswax and honey, with milky coffee, buttered brioche, apples, pears and orange zest.

    • Palate

      Sweet and rich with a thick mouthfeel. Soft spice and orchard fruit balance sweet caramel.

    • Finish

      Apples and pears with dark chocolate and a touch of spice.

  • 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.

    ML in SanFran

    Over the years I have developed a particular affinity for Speyside single malts, though not all. Pardon my wording but there's some truth to the rest of the drinking world describing scotch whiskey as jet fuel. And while a number of distilleries have smoothed it out over the past few decades only a few have offered this alternative. Balvenie, Glenlivet, Benriach, Glen Grant to name but a few. Noticeably, brews like Macallan, Glenfarclas and Glenfiddich were not on the list, until now that is. The 21 year Glenfiddich Reserva goes all the way. Suggestions it is sweet like dessert wine, I think, are exaggerated somewhat though some might say that about Balvenie. The rum cask distilling comes through more in terms of smoothness perhaps with a hint of dark rum rather that as "sweet" in my view.

    One of the best I've tried in this price range. However, still yet to have weight as a statement as I have tried only a few at this level. Brilliant palate! Smoothest one I've had yet, the complexity is just one of a kind! The fact that I am not a huge fan of rum simply backs it up entirely! Soaked up everything I like in a rum, including sweetness, while retaining all the qualities we love In a single malt! Spotless.

    Like the old age statement, amazing box and colour, great bottle weight, nice and sweet, more like cognac type than a harsh whisky. The finish is not the longest but a great whisky as my other whisky is royal salute 21 years so this is great as a single malt so buy and enjoy it !
