The Glenfiddich Winter Storm 21 sounds good, I considered it in the past but didn't go for it.

I had a bottle, expensive but it is very good.

Batch 2 has been selling so poorly that some retailers are now selling under RRP. So you may find one at the right price for you.

I sampled Batch 1 and was wholly underwhelmed. An utter disappointment compared to the likes of the Glenfiddich 21 Rum finish.

There did seem to be a lack of reviews on the Glenfiddich Winter Storm 21, probably due to its price although it was priced around the same as the standard Glenfiddich 21. I have very much enjoyed the other experimental series bottles from Glenfiddich, particularly the Project XX and the Fire & Cane which does make it difficult to pay 3 to 4 times the prices of these for one bottle of the Winter Storm 21 although I an still intrigued by the Canadian ice wine connection.
