Being a solid benchmark Single Malt, this whisky is easy accessible to the beginner. Green apples and other fruits dominate the nose, while Glenfiddich 12 tastes sweet, malty and harmonic. Its rather light character combines with a hint of oak and a slight bitterness in the finish. Unfortunately, there are some rough edges in the background of this spirit, presumably due to high demand for casks. After all, Glenfiddich 12 is the best-selling Single Malt whisky in the world. It's a warmly recommended Speysider that offers a practical introduction to malt whisky!

Nosing: Green ApplePineappleVanilla
Fruity. Like apple/pineapple juice from concentrate. Vanilla

Taste: FruitCaramelPineappleSpices
Sweet and fruity. Candied pineapple. Creamy with peppery spice.

Finish: FruitOak
Short to medium, fruity with some oak showing through. Finishes slightly sour.

Comment:
I picked this up in a half bottle format just to try. I think this is a good standard release and at a fair price. It lacks a bit of intensity on the palate for my tastes and I found the finish a little disappointing. I'd definitely say it was a good beginner's malt though, it's quite approachable and readily available.

Nosing:
Fruity, apples, pears.
Taste: sweat but spicy, apples pears, flat taste

Finish: very short, a little oaky

Comment:
This whisky is delicate and flat. Not to much taste, alcohol not well hidden. Two good things I can find there is oak aftertaste which I love and oiliness, but this oilness don't bring too much taste with it. Can be for begginers but I would say for very begginers.
