  1. The_Osprey scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Glenfiddich 12 Year Old Signature Malt (40%). Consumed Dec 2018. Aroma is a touch basic, woody, vanilla, pencil shavings. Taste is subtle, touch watery in the middle, subtle esters suggesting tropical fruits, quite pleasant watery malt character, smooth clean and estery with no alcohol burn. A classic easy whisky that most people will be able to enjoy in some way, which is why it is such a top selling brand. 3.35/80

    Who hasn't picked up a 12-year-old Glenfiddich in the supermarket ?! For well under 30 € this pleasing malt has a good price-performance ratio and has been the entry point into the world of malt whisky for many people - myself included.
    Here we are dealing with a "special" bottle that is filled with 43% instead of the usual 40% drinking strength. Compared to 40% bottling, however, the difference is really minimal, if one can even speak of a difference. I had expected a little more than that.

      Very pleasant and fresh, fruity nose. Pear, tangerine, tart apple, orange, fresh plum, honey. When the temperature increases, raspberries and strawberries are added.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Orange, a little pepper, ginger, pear, light oak spice, a little lemon.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short finish with a medium length. What remains is pear with a little oak flavor.

    • Nose


      Vanilla, sweet. (2014 :) Apple (officially yes pear), warm and sweet, has something of tea.
    • Taste
      Fresh (a little), a lot of oak, slight bitterness. Sweet, floral.
    • Finish
      Still oak. Alcoholic acuity is restrained.

      Conclusion: I like him! Always happy. Fruity, not too bulky but still aromatic. Pleasant sweetness.
