Tasting Notes 

Color: Golden straw

Nose: Big notes of sherry right out of the gate, with light apple, honey and caramel following behind

Palate: The fresh apple flavor for which Glenfiddich is known is strong here. Sweet malty notes dominate the midpalate, along with light honey and vanilla.

Finish: The sherry influence appears on the back of the tongue. The swallow is quite gentle, with a light alcoholic bite. The finish is long, with lovely malt and sherry notes sticking around, waiting for the glass to be refilled.

Our Review

Glenfiddich 12 is a phenomenally popular whisky whose quality matches its popularity. While not quite as complex or challenging as some of the older and more ambitious Glenfiddichs, it’s as satisfying and enjoyable an entry-level single malt as you’re going to find. It’s sweet and “easy” enough for beginning scotch drinkers, but it’s suitably flavorful and balanced for even the snobbiest whisky snob. It’s a great way to get back to basics for a dram or two.

While it’s best when drunk neat, Glenfiddich 12 holds up surprisingly well to water or ice, even if they’re not necessary. As for cocktails, it’s a little weak in a highball, but makes a fine scotch sour, and it’s a nice upgrade from blended scotch in a Penicillin.

Glenfiddich 12 isn’t exactly a thrilling adventure for the taste buds, but it’s not supposed to be. It’s more like the foundation on which a lifelong education in whisky can be built: a perfect starting point, and one that’s enjoyable to return to on a regular basis as well.

If you’re ever playing on a trivia team in a bar or pub and the question “what’s the number one single malt whisky in the world?” comes up you now know the answer… Glenfiddich 12. The distillery was founded in 1886 by William Grant and not only do they make the best selling and most awarded scotch whiskies in the world, but they were one of the first single malts to invest in advertising and marketing. From all accounts, it seems to have worked.

Glenfiddich 12 isn’t what you would call an exciting whisky, but it is a good whisky and that’s why it has been able to gain the market share that it has over the years. It’s cheap, good and readily accessible to anyone who wants a soft and easily drinkable single malt. Which, as luck would have it, is exactly what most whisky drinkers want and there’s nothing wrong with that. Not every dram you have needs to be a cask strength peat fueled beast that charges out of the bottle. Sometimes you want something nice and simple, but still tasty, to relax with.

Overall I like the Glenfiddich 12 and if you haven’t had it you should. The nose is a bit soft and mushy with the notes somewhat running together making it not very exciting, but it’s not quite boring either. It’s easy and accessible with sweet malty flavors moving about the glass in a delicate balance. If it were any sweeter it would topple over and become cloying, but there is just enough malt to keep everything in line and make it a pleasant drinking experience with a fantastic finish.
