Glenfiddich’s fourth experiment has been one of their most popular drams — a half-peated Single Malt finished in Rum Casks taking "smoky-sweet" for the win.

The famous Glenfiddich Distillery was founded by Scotch Whisky legend William Grant in 1887 with used equipment acquired from the Cardhu Distillery. Remaining in the hands of the Grant family to this day, Glenfiddich is the biggest selling Single Malt Whisky worldwide and can be found in quality pubs from Berlin and Beijing to São Paulo and San Diego. Not only are they a top producer of premium Single Malt by volume, they are a much honored and loved go-to Speyside of choice for millions of loyal fans.

While Glenfiddich is best known for its sweet, mild Speyside Single Malt, they have been experimenting with flavorful combinations and even peated Spirit since 2003. Glenfiddich Fire & Cane is officially the fourth edition in their "Experimental" range. It is comprised of their rare, peated Single Malt combined with their signature fruit-forward Single Malt — both aged in ex-Bourbon casks. The Spirits are married and finished in ex-Rum casks from South America and bottled at 43% ABV. The name "Fire & Cane" makes sense now, right?

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Antique Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
You can smell the smoky peat immediately, but it is a gentle whiff of the wind over aromas of apple, flames orange zest, butter toffee, and oak spices.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate follows the nose, opening with the smoky notes and then a crispy-baked cinnamon apple pie with more brittle toffee, and a hint of salted granola.

Finish
The finish is medium length with the smoky-sweet profile staying on.

Timothy
Timothy,
Very smokey - more my wife's taste; but glad I got this bottle as she's very much enjoyed it!

D.,
Love the smokiness and peat flavor, makes me thinking of camping.
 
Corinne
Corinne,
A little over-flavored for a single malt. Nice spice and easy to drink.
 
Michael
Michael,
Smokey and sweet with a smooth finish and good barrel spice. Not a typical scotch so if you are looking for a classic taste it would not meet your expectations, but as a unique whiskey it was very nice.
 
Steven
Steven,
I did not receive this bottle. Instead I received Chivas Regal 13 yr from American Rye casks. I give it a 6. Of course it is a bit immature in taste and not as complex but has nice notes of vanilla.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I love this - like it could become a problem how much I love it - the smoky start combined with the sweet finish is fantastic.

oily texture with a smooth finish. Goes down easy but hoping for a little more flavor.

Solid smoke with a hint of sweetness that is noticeably different than sherry casked offerings.

smoke, spice, sweet. Too much smoke for my taste.

A Little too much of a bite.
 
Ethan
Ethan,
Newer to scotches - one of the better ones I’ve tasted. Smokiness is definitely present in aroma and taste.
 
Andrew

Smokey, spicy, sweet
 
Troy
Troy,
Love the taste of classic Glenfiddich. This was a bit much and too different for my palate. Definite after notes of Charcoal Smokiness followed by a fruity tone. Was actually a bit overwhelming. Not putting it in the front of my collection but, it has been added for when the tastes lean towards something different

Beginner introduction to smokey whisky.

Apple and orange zest with some slight smoke on the nose. Caramel and sweetness initially on the palate, followed by some cinnamon. Nice change of pace
 
Jerry
Jerry,
Nice light smoke with some sweetness.
 
Megan
Megan,
The description sounded delicious, but my taste buds only let me taste pure smoke. My husband was indifferent, but I will not drink this.
 
Ken
Ken,
Bearing in mind that I am not well versed in Scotch, but I really like this. There is the smokey peat, but also the fruitiness, it just works for me.
 
Mary
Mary,
I normally enjoy Glenfiddich. This has me puzzled. I am convinced I may have a bad bottle from a bad barrel. The nose and taste is way off...there is a very medicinal and sharp taste/aroma that is strong in terms of a topical anesthetic. I honestly will probably dump it down the drain. I loathe saying this, but maybe somebody should check the barrels again before bottling. I would definitely not get this again. Sorry.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Solid enough offering from a reliably good distillery, if lacking in distillery character. I don't get any of the pear-and-vanilla that dominate most Glenfiddich bottlings; it's all lost in a cloud of smoking brown sugar. Enjoyable enough, but it's a little like someone wearing too makeup - you don't really get a sense of what they actually look like.
