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 Apple Pineapple Vanilla
Fruity. Like apple/pineapple juice from concentrate. Vanilla

Taste: Fruit Caramel Pineapple Spices
Sweet and fruity. Candied pineapple. Creamy with peppery spice.

Finish: Fruit Oak
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.

English:
Nose: honey, floral, pear, plum, Vanilla, Bourbon
Palate: in the beginning- sweet, but it quickly gets bitter. Pepper, orange zest, sulphuric, green tea
Finish: alkoholic note, a little bit of metallic note, Honey
It better smells as tastes. I won't buy another bottle
[edit]
The first impression was mistakable. It tastes good indeed. After a few more drams... I'm convinced that this Whisky is really not so bad. For such a price (23€ Sky, Germany), it's a perfect idea to buy it. I have it together (Glas by Glas) with Bushmills 10, which I really enjoy. I must say - both of them are good, but the Glenfiddich is a bit BORING. Perfect to start with.
78/100

Deutsch:
Nase: Honig, Blumen, Birne, Pflaume, Vanille, Bourbon
Körper: zuerst süß, danach gleich bitter. Pfeffer, Orangezest, Sulfur, grüner Tee
Finish: Alkohol, ein bisschen metallischen Noten, Honig
Duftet besser wie schmeckt. Ich werde keine neue Flasche kaufen
[edit]
Die erste Eindruck war verwirrend. Er schmeckt doch gut. Nach ein Paar schlucken... ich bin sicher dass der Whisky ist wirklich nicht schlecht. Der Preis (23€ im Sky) ist eine Super-Preis. Ich trinke ihn mit den Bushmills 10 Jahre alt zusammen, den ich wirklich gerne habe. Ich muss sagen - beide sind gut, jedoch der Glenfiddich etwas langweilig ist. Super zum Anfang
