Lunar New Year Edition 21 Year Old Gran Reserva Single Malt Scotch Whisky
To celebrate the Lunar New Year in 2021, Glenfiddich has unveiled a simply stunning limited-edition box for their 21 Year Old Gran Reserva, designed by Rion Wang. The Shenzhen-based artist said: “I wanted to tell a story that evokes the warmth and excitement of Lunar New Year – the irreplaceable feeling and anticipation of finally coming home to loved ones.” Although this is the Year of the Ox, the majestic stag – Glenfiddich’s iconic emblem and a symbol of longevity, status and prosperity in Chinese culture – has, for obvious reasons, taken centre stage here.
Awarded 98 points and the trophy for the best Single Malt Scotch Whisky between 16 and 25 years of age at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2019, Glenfiddich’s 21 Year Old Gran Reserva is a serious piece of kit, primarily because it has been finished in casks that previously used to age Caribbean rum. The rum-soaked casks infuse the aged whisky with a spicy warmth and indulgent vanilla and toffee sweetness. This gives the whisky a sumptuous intensity that is both rich and creamy, yet still retains all that unmistakeable Glenfiddich character. On the nose, intense aromas of apple, vanilla and spice combine with floral notes, buttered brioche, roasted barley, honeysuckle and hints of banana. The palate is sweet and rich with an oily mouthfeel and a good balance of toasty oak and orchard fruit, along with dark chocolate, figs, new leather, marmalade, ginger and smoky caramel flavours. A dram of outstanding quality that would make a fine gift for any single malt enthusiast and the perfect toast to the New Year.
Glenfiddich was founded by William Grant in 1887. A few decades later, his son-in-law, Charles Gordon, would travel across Asia, building strong relationships that would long outlive him. Returning almost a year later, he celebrated his homecoming with his family and presumably a dram or two. Today, Glenfiddich represents the world's most awarded Single Malt Scotch. Still managed by William’s descendants, still using the same water source and still extremely popular in Asia, Glenfiddich continue to evolve, improve and innovate and the whiskies released have never been better.
