Glenfiddich Fire & Cane

Peated Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland

1.5 out of 5 stars
Sample provided by @PBMichiganWolverine. Thanks! Sample rating: -1 (this is on my minus infinite to plus infinite scale where glenfiddich 12 is the zero) The full bottle is 40-55 USD. That earns a 1.5 / 5 stars Tried this on its own and didn’t like it. What do you do with a whisky you don’t like? Try is side by side with a similar average whisky to make the average whisky look like a superstar. Balvenie 14 carribean cask gets a +2 in comparison. This glenfiddich fire and cane is more like swimming pool water and cane. The syrup and sugarcane from the rum finish is alright. But the weakly peated immature spirit is swimming pool water on the last day of summer. And there is no fire. Where are my spices? The finish is weird enough to be more memorable than a standard glenfiddich, but dangerously close to tasting like trash. Tasting a Balvenie after tho... I might finally kill the bottle after over a year.

    @ScotchingHard - those glasses and jacket look like they pair well with a Ferrari. Any other hobbies we should know about??? :)

    Yeah this is a like / hate relationship in most of these reviews. I liked it, but I think more so as an experiment...there’s no way I’d buy another bottle.
