Overview: Glenfiddich 21 Year Reserva Rum Cask Finish is a luxurious and well-aged single malt Scotch whisky.

This expression undergoes a unique finishing process in Caribbean rum casks, imparting rich and complex flavors to the whisky.


  1. Mashing and Fermentation: Glenfiddich uses 100% malted barley for this single malt. The barley is mashed, fermented, and distilled in copper pot stills to create a pure and flavorful distillate.

  3. Rum Cask Finish: During the rum cask finish, the whisky interacts with the residual rum in the wood, absorbing the sweet and tropical notes that are characteristic of fine Caribbean rums.
