  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Water: No, it's pretty thin

    Conclusion: And again a successful experiment that transfers Glenfiddich to another level. Harmonious and well-balanced, in the mouth then the surprising after the nose Torfexplosion, while he returns in the finish to its roots. But unfortunately too weak on the chest, why not fill a drop with 46%? Then this malt would have become a hit with a little more maturity.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Gentle, but noticeable dry smoke (charcoal fire, smoked bacon), preserved fruits such as peach, pineapple and apricot, malty and sugary sweetness of beet syrup (Grafschafter Goldsaft), overall very harmonious, but a bit thin
    • Taste
      85 85
      he starts with a marked sweetness of sugar and a fruit cocktail, then the smoke hits with unexpected violence, the smoke also has significantly more peat flavors than in the nose
    • Finish
      85 85
      unfortunately this is a bit too short, next to the peat smoke, of course, the sweetness comes through again, but this does not dominate, behind you can then notice with the pear notes, carried by some oak the typical Fiddich 12yo distillery character

  2. uap304 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Very pleasant and enjoyable, really exactly what you would hope for in looking at the label. It's got a layer of peat contrasting with the distillery character, but super well-balanced. There's boatloads of sweetness from the rum calls, but not in a cloying way. Really digging this whisky, and before I knew it the bottle was gone. Very worthy of a permanent spot in the lineup, as well as on the shelf.
    • Nose
      Fresh, crisp, "Highland" peat of course, never overwhelming, with subtle spiced fruits, cinnamon apples, fruitcake, rum cake naturally, but mostly the sweet sweet peat. Definitely not a peat monster but it's always pleasingly present.
    • Taste
      Rounded and oily, gonna be good. Crisp and refreshing, bright floral notes with phenolic peaty overtones. Strong sweetness with vanilla, honey, and bruleed sugar, some parfait fruits and berries. More of a "Glenfiddich 18" experience on the palate. YUMMO.
    • Finish
      Rather quick, pleasantly spicy, dry, fading into smoky vanilla cream. Incroyable! Loving this. Very satisfying, so so enjoyable. Right up there with the excellent Bourbon Barrel Reserve release.

  3. maltwhisky_de scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    Glenfiddich has passed this fire test grandly: Smoky and sweet notes combine in the Fire & Cane into a great whisky. While the Malt appeared sweeter in the Nosing, the smoke came out stronger in the Tasting. Still much lighter and more accessible than a typical Islay whisky. A clear buy recommendation also for those who want to slowly approach the subject of peat whiskys.

    • Nose
      The Fire & Cane welcomes us with sweet and spicy notes and serves us tangerines on the silver platter. In addition salty caramel, orange peel and gingerbread garnish with sugared sweet cocktail cherries. Behind a fine trail of wood smoke.
    • Taste
      Fine smoke and fruity sweetness are also very balanced in the taste. We taste the pulp of oranges and again tangerines. The caramel has also found its way into the mouth, this time paired with Butterspekulatius. The malt is overall fine smoky and not so much peaty. If the contained whisky is younger, at least you do not notice it.
    • Finish
      On the finish, the Glenfiddich Fire & Cane is slightly mineral, but remains mild and accessible.

    I found this one to be lacking in strength and complexity. By no means bad but I am a little disappointed.

    • Nose
      78 78
      Light fruits, strong alcohol, very light smoke in the background
    • Taste
      80 80
      Spicy, sweet
    • Finish
      79 79
      Light smoke mates with a light sweetness, medium long, behind a slight bitterness

  6. ctu scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Harmonious, but slightly thin. The rum is not exaggerated, the peat is well too.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Peat, waxy fruits, camphor, salted caramel, Haribo and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Peat, milk caramel and fruits. Massive spices, mainly pepper. Fresh eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length, peaty, spicy.

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly wild after the relatively harmonious nose. I like it, the peat level is set correctly ... this is not a peat monster but it is already much more than just nuances. The fruitiness is nice in the nose, otherwise it is a spice bomb. The rum has relatively little to say here, in my opinion. Another successful Glenfiddich.
    • Nose
      Very fruity nose, gummy bears, jelly pear, flowery, but also clear hints of peat, cloves, spices on the whole very sweet, but with the appropriate kick.
    • Taste
      Amazingly tart after the nose, this is where I also like to taste the rum for the first time. Dry, tart, spices, pepper, a relatively strong smoke, some eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Very long on peat, a little bitter oak, black pepper, spices and some wood.
