The remarkable liquid is matured in a combination of American and European oak casks for 21 years and finished for four months in bourbon barrels seasoned with Glenfiddich’s Caribbean rum, imbuing the whisky with extra exotic notes.

December 13, 2022: Glenfiddich, a much awarded single-malt whisky, released its 21-year-old expression in India. The 21-Year-Old is the only Glenfiddich single malt to undergo its unique finishing in Gran Reserva casks that once contained premium Caribbean rum, specially imported to The Glenfiddich Distillery. The rum is blended to the Speyside distiller’s secret recipe from several tropical Caribbean islands to awaken distinctive notes of ginger, lime and banana within the rich smoothness of the patiently mellowed 21-Year-Old.
