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.

Overall: Stereotypical Speyside. Consistent - a good benchmark.

Glenfiddich 12 Year Old Reviews

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?

Something has changed feels younger

Sadly not what it used to be even 3 years ago. Definitely the glenfiddich 12 has changed not only the label but the spirit i feel it more immature like being 8 yo. Lack of reasonable complexity that used to have, it's more grassy and characterless.

Nothing special . Very light, spirity, medium finish.

Nothing about it aside from burn

The pinnacle of generic malt

its classic for a reason

if you find GF12 bland and boring it's your palate that has the issue not the whisky.
There's plenty there for an experienced palate.

A decent whisky ruined.

I agree that this Glenfiddich has taken a decided turn for the worse. Very disappointing. It seems to have been totally emasculated. I hope Glenmorangie and Highland Park don't go the same way!

Hotel lobby

Now I really have my own hotel lobby inside my apartment, with this Glenfiddich 12.

On the nose, very light hints of flowers, minerals, orchard fruit, even weaker hints of malt, honey and orange peels. A little bit spirity. On the palate, green grass, sweet candies and malt, minerals. Some memories of smoke, too... Finish with sweet light hints of oak, specially when I'm breathing in. Oily, smooth, mouth-watering (not dry), and with medium length. No bitterness.

This whisky isn't meant to be a complex carousel of an Islay dram, so the credits shouldn't be put in comparison with those whiskies that are in other categories. This is the hotel lobby whisky, for the broader range of consumers, and I think that it's a very good whisky for beginners.

Good value for the money.

very poor

very bad especially it lessens the whole field of single malts simply blown away by the likes of laphroaig and talisker for the same price even black label is far superior it is very harsh with a compacted palate associated with blended whiskys i have found superior blends in budget supermarkets for less than half the price.
