Glenfiddich 12

Glenfiddich 12 is part of the distillery's flagship collection, a great choice for seasoned sippers or those who are new to whisky, with lots of light and fruity flavours thanks to a high cut point. Aged for 12 years in American and European oak casks, it's also the world's most awarded single malt!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Grain. Slightly floral, mineralic. Spirity, orchard fruit, malty, honey. Citrus develops.

Palate Light, floral, spices. Very smooth.

Finish Sweet, touch of oak and general fruit, oily.

Reviews for Glenfiddich 12 Year Old
Given price there are little complaints
I actually like this bottle, a drop of water and it’s highly drinkable, it doesn’t send your taste buds into another dimension but still a decent whisky.
Remembering the price it’s not a bottle you bring out to impress guests or have as your treat but makes a decent weeknight tipple for not alot of money.

Lacks flavour.
Has no flavour really. A bit like a vodka rather than a scotch.

Good finish. Perhaps not challenging enough.

It is what it is.
It's a 12-year-old single-malt Scotch Whisky, alright.
Simple, plain, understated, classic.
Drinkable, easily. But not as exciting as SO many other options out there. Even from Glenfiddich.

Ah ah, I know what you're thinking. Did he drink six drams or only five? Well, being as this here's Glenfiddich 12, the most popular malt in the world, and one shot will blow your head clean off, you got to ask yourself one question. Do ya feel lucky? Well do ya, punk?

Bearable
Not tried this since the '80's, still find it inferior to other similar priced malts...is ok...but don't 'hit the spot' .

It's ok
Smells quite floral and light with bits of citrusy fruits, tastes very much how it smells with an obvious grassy note , youthful and lacking in any real depth, still bits of interest but overall very generic compared to others I've been trying.

The Gold Standard
I do not understand the poor reviews. Maybe I just always get a good bottle. My preference is for delicate, non-peated malts and this is my favourite. Delightful nose with honey, apples and pears and vanilla from the oak casks. These flavours carry through the taste and also the finish which has no burn at all. For me the quintessential malt.

Alright
It's fine; pretty reliable, also pretty boring. Really nothing to write home about - sure, there's honey, some orchard flavour and some saltiness, but it all seems a bit limp (which is not the same as light and delicate). A good whisky if you don't drink a lot of whisky, and want something decent in the drinks cabinet - also more versatile than Glenmorangie.

Buy it for what it is, not what you wish it were.
I reviewed this whisky two years ago and liked it.
I bought another bottle today and it seems similar: light, oily with a touch of salinity. The mouthfeel is pleasantly soft and buttery. I do believe however that the mention of sherry casks, which I am certain is technically true, is somewhat disingenuous. There is only the merest whisper of sherry here; the faintest aftertaste of a pale honey.
I can understand the disappointment of some reviewers who are looking for something "bigger", "meatier". But the tasting notes above are quite accurate. And there is certainly room in the vast realm of whisky for such a dram.
Now the question becomes... this or Glenmorangie?
