Glenfiddich 21 Winter Storm Review [From Paris with Love]

Hi everyone,

That’s been the message coming from Glenfiddich at the moment about a certain ‘experimental’ release, finished in Canadian Ice Wine casks.
Go to any other whisky blog for the whole press release.

Glenfiddich 21 Winter Storm 43%
Colour: Gold
Body: Medium
Nose: Sweet fruit, green apple, white grape, powdered sugar, toffee apple.
Taste: Sweet, green apple, soft, lacking power but pleasant, toffee apple, white grape, icing sugar, some ginger and dry oak.
Finish: Medium length. Intensifies, with oak and sour green apple.
Seems almost the same as the 21 to me... which is really disappointing. Ice Wine finished whisky is a cool idea, but it hasn’t seemed to have added anything here.

Thanks for reading!
