Glenfiddich Fire & Cane 70cl 40°
Glenfiddich Fire & Cane is the 4th limited edition of the "Experimental Series" collection that features the successful Project XX and Winter Storm expressions.
Malt Master Brian Kinsman distilled peated liquor for the first time in Glenfiddich stills. This new experiment is born from this idea.
The distillery experts married a peaty Single Malt with a more classic whisky, aged in Bourbon casks, which had a sweet and fruity profile, typical of Glenfiddich whisky.
The Single Malt has finally aged for another 3 months in South American rum casks to bring added sweetness and complexity.
The opinions of connoisseurs on the tastings of Glenfiddich Fire & Cane Experiment # 4 remain divided. Some find mainly the very original smoke for the Glenfiddich distillery while others have been marked by the sweetness of Single Malt with its maturation of 3 months in barrels of rum from South America.

The steep-sided valley where the Fiddich River flows, gave its name to the best-selling malt in the world.
The distillery is located on the banks of the river in Dufftown. Fiddich translates as “stag” from Gaelic and here’s why the animal is now the emblem of the distillery. This famous distillery has been established in 1886 and is still in the hands of the same family (as a limited company). In 1963, the company bet on spreading the Single Malt outside the borders of Scotland – which was considered as pure folly by blended scotch producers, deeming Single Malts as too intense, too richly aromatic or too complex for non-Scots drinkers. Glenfiddich remained traditional and is still heating its small stills with coal and ageing spirit in casks. The whiskies, aged in different woods, are blended in the Glenfiddich cellars, and bottled “at the chateau”! In fact, the distillery overlooks the complete bottling process. Glenfiddich is proud to own the most rewarded Single malt whisky range in the world.
