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.
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.
