The 30YO represents quite a sophisticated style of Glenfiddich, with ripe fruit and honey notes continually peeking through the drier, more oak influenced structure, as well as a fair amount of 'flesh' overlaying the rather delicate, complex underpinning. Nice whisky, this one.

Haven't tried the 21YO.

Rum finished eh? I've never tried a rum finished whisky. And going by the price of the 21yr old, I won't either. It's not that I can't afford it-I can. But I have a limit on how much I want to spend on a bottle of whisky. And The Glenlivet Nadurra, Glenmorangie Nectar D'or, Aberlour Abunadh, Glenfarcias 15yrs etc is for me my limit.

And speaking of prices, why is there such a large price discrepancy between the 18 and 21yr?

I tasted both at the distillery in the fall of last year. The 30yo is excellent also got to taste the 15yo, 18, 21 and a 1975 single cask (awesome!). The 21 isn't a bad whisky it's just the rum finished whiskies have never really impressed me (also Benriach and Springbank).

I have never tasted 30 years , but just finished a lovely bottle of 21 yrs Gran Reserva ; I think its becoming rare lately ...I find it quite impresive on the nose ...Its not my favourite one but I can say it is a serious impression. I would guess 30 yrs would be good and worth to try , I hope I will have a chance to go to Cyprus again and get one for 130 Euros ;
