Description:
Nose: Intense and vanilla sweet, floral, hints of banana, figs, rich toffee, new leather and oak.

Taste: Initially soft, then brisk, vibrant and drying, peppery, a touch of smoke, oak, lime, ginger and spices.

Finish: Very long, warming, dry and spicy.

Uniquely finished for up to four months in barrels that once contained rum from the Caribbean to create a luxuriously rich and indulgent single malt

After maturing our whisky for 21 years, our Malt Master adds even warmer and richer flavours by uniquely finishing this single malt in first fill bourbon barrels that once contained rum from the Caribbean.

The rum-soaked cask infuses the aged whisky with a spicy warmth and indulgent vanilla and toffee sweetness, the character of the Caribbean shining through. This gives our whisky a sumptuous sweet intensity that is both rich and creamy yet still retains the unmistakable character of Glenfiddich.

Review: Wow !
This big orange box arrived and it set me wondering (for several heart stopping moments before I opened it) as to who might have sent me such a gift, whatever it was. The "www.thedrinkshop.com" gave me no immediate clues, except to the possible contents, someone had sent me some alcohol :-)
To say that I was surprised to see that the box contained this bottle of amazing malt is one of the understatements of the decade. The note was simple "Isn't it nice to receive surprises, Slinte, Kevin"
Kevin is a friend in Co Cork, who's book I had proofread last year prior to it being published by Trafford.com. Some time later, when my Mother-In-Law wanted to publish her book, it was Kevin who recommended Trafford to us. In return, when Kathleen's book was published, Kevin received a generous commission, and the Malt was his way of saying thank you.
Right, now the story is out of the way - the review of the drink itself :-
Wow ! (again)
The tasting notes are actually pretty spot on - an immediate hefty noseful of bananas, figs and toffee, especially the toffee. The rum cask conditioning is mostly responsible for this aspect I suppose, with later overtones of demerara sugar peeping through. First taste was taken straight, but subsequently a little spring water was added to get the esters flowing. I like to use a low calcium water for my whisky, and Aqua-Pura is a good one to start with. I have been trying to find another outlet for Glenlivet Spring water (other than Waitrose) but have so far been unsuccessful - this would be an ideal partner for this majestic Malt.
On tasting neat, the first impression was of a sudden semi-sharp "ping" of the taste buds, followed by the beautifully soft and mellow warmth that the 21 year maturation gives. After the water was added, other tones appeared. Citrus fruit, oak and an appealing smokiness became apparent. It did not take too much concentration either, as these were easily identifiable, whilst not being too heavy.
One of the longest finishes I have ever encountered in a Malt of this type rounded off my tasting along with another blessing in Gaelic to my good friend Kevin, Slinte Mbor!
The biggest surpise was the price tag. I visited this website to see what other delights they offered and the 60 price tag made me appreciate this whisky even more. I wonder if I can persuade anyone to get me another bottle in time for Christmas?
Bad points : none.
