Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 40%
Glenfiddich 21-year-old Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish is a delicious and elegant 21-year-old Speysider, perfect for after-dinner sipping. This item comes with two free Glenfiddich-branded tumblers for that very purpose (while stocks last).
The original version of this whisky was Glenfiddich 21-year-old Havana Reserve, which first appeared just after the millennium but quickly fell foul of the US authorities (who are a bit funny about Cuba-related stuff), and thus it was reborn as Glenfiddich Gran Reserva with the rum casks now sourced from more capitalism-friendly countries in the Caribbean.
