Glenfiddich 12 Year Old Reviews
Nose: Distinctively fresh and fruity with a hint of pear. Beautifully crafted and delicately balanced.
Taste: Characteristic sweet, fruity notes. Develops into butterscotch, cream, malt and subtle oak flavours.
Finish: A long smooth and mellow finish.

I like the fruitiness of this whisky. Smooth going down and the price is right.
I''m 28 years old, and I truly fascinate the glenfiddich line. Never liked scotches till i tasted this bottle. I personally prefer this to glenlivet. I''m not a taste expert, that''s my personal view on tasting both. I love the fruity taste yet mellow end from this bottle. Highly recommended for its price.
There is a lingering disparity between the body and the richness, but has a sweet and floral characteristic that starts to kick in in the middle and lasts till the end, which is long and mellow.
best whiskey i have tasted,especially with cold apple juice.
Best whisky i have tasted
The Producer''s Note of a long, smooth and mellow finish not withstanding, Glenfiddich 12yo is a base for whisky beginners. I think everyone should have this available to offer as a start to enjoying single malts.
The 12 year old suffers from being too one dimensional. Far too much green apple on the nose which follows through into the taste. Slightly harsh finish. The 18 year old is superb but there are better younger whiskys out there such as the 10 year old Glenlivet or 12 year old Old Pulteney.
The 12 year old is a fine tipple. Just because it is in every shop doesn't mean it is not a fine dram!
There is alot of coments saying that Glenfiddich 12 is bland, and in the past I would have agreed with them but I tried this recently and was blown away by not only how much it had improved but by how good it was in general, baked apple, pear, brown sugar, caramel, highland toffee and a touch of peat. nice to see it back to it's former glory a very nice dram.
One of my first single malts. Floral and estery on the nose. Not much complexity and could feel quite bland, but still very smooth and enjoyable. Very good for before meals and drinking on empty stomach.
