    was just at Singapore Changi airport DFS. there is a new packing or bottling for the Glenfiddich 21 yo Rum Cask Finish. first it is now just a Reserva vs previously was a Gran Reserva, and that bright orange box! ouch my eyes.

    so, with the Gran gone missing, is it still the same quality? price is still the same.

    I have seen different ABVs with the 21yrs. The Gran Reserva shows 40% and the Rum Finish 43.2%.

    The 21 year I get at Travel Retail (Changi Airport) is marked "Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finished" and 43.2% ABV. It's the same packaging and bottle as shown in Bill Kinsman's video.

    The new packaging also at 43.2% so the only word missing is Gran.

    Other than the box colour being so jarring, otherwise I am not so concerned about it except for the missing "Gran" whatever that might mean.

    is there a 21 Gran Reserva without Rum Finish?

    Sorry, I think I mixed it up. I looked at the pictures and on every bottle they say Rum Finished.
