Continuing with the experimental series, here is the 4th opus, the Glenfiddich Fire & Cane. A fusion of smoky and sweet notes that, in my opinion, tend more towards sweetness, but it's up to you to judge... This single malt is elaborated by marrying peated whisky with malts matured in bourbon barrels, and then finishing in Latin rum casks for six months. The result is a nice harmony that goes down very easily.
Tasting notes of the distillery:
One the nose: Billowing soft peat notes, like distant smoke on the wind. Rich sweet toffee with zesty fresh fruit notes and spiciness.
On the palate: Like a Highland peat campfire, with oak notes and toffee. Sharp green fruit, sweet baked apple and soft smoke.
