  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    For many it was the first single malt whisky from Scotland - the Glenfiddich 12 years in the classic, green, triangular bottle. A serious, well average malt, always available at a fair price!
    • Nose
      fresh pears, güne apples, honey, malt, very mild;
    • Taste
      soft, gentle onset, sweetness, citrus fruit, malt, very little caramel and vanilla, then some oak, spice;
    • Finish
      short fruity malty finish; in the finish slightly bitter oak;

  4. Brinker scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    Not bad per se, but very dull and not much nose nor taste.

  5. Waykid scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    This is certainly flawless in it's category of mild, easily drinkable and available malt. With the present trend of travel retails filling with new NAS-expressions a sure choice to buy for a sipping whisky. It is certainly no belter, but kinda has it all in a very nice way.
    • Nose
      Very fruity with nectarines and peaches, grapes, a very gentle touch of smoke, soft and mild, but pleasant. Some whiffs of yeast and homemade brew.
    • Taste
      A mild fruity smoke, salmiak, peach. Softly sweet and just a hint salty. Very drinkable.
    • Finish
      Some peach and mild maltiness with a whiff of smoke.

    A delicious single malt and the taste is smooth / sweet with hints of vanilla. In addition, you taste pear and this makes the whisky also delicious fresh and fruity.

    Easy drinkable, not very complex, not very impressive. Sweet taste with some distant hints of fruit. Short-medium finish.
