    Perhaps the best 12 year single malt expression there is. Beautifully presented and at a fair price. It's not a beginners whisky at all, beginners Whiskies for me are the entry level Grants, Bells and others around the ?12.00 to ?15.00 mark. Glenfiddich 11 is a malt starting Whisky which will get you looking for other expressions such as its older brother Glenfiddich 15 year old. You will however, no matter how many other malts you try, keep coming back to this one.

    I'm new to Scotch, and the Glenfiddich 12 was my third bottle to try. It's by far my favorite right now, over the Macallan 12 and the Dalwhinnie 15

    This is a fine spirit. Good for those in any part of their journey. It has been around a long time for a reason. Anything less than a 4 star on this is just some jerk.....by the way, drink to them from time to time. Good Stuff, Sir......

    A superb single malt, I am new to single malt whisky, and not a drinker of blended whiskies. This is definitely the daily dram.

    My wife got me this to celebrate me passing my driving test. I know it's one of the most popular malts, but it's popular for a reason. I got a hint of fruit but tons of honey. Not 'the most amazing Scotch ever' but certainly very nice and I'm looking forward to having a glass in front of the fire this weekend...

    I was surprised I liked this so much being one of the more 'common' brands. More like an Irish whiskey to me. Smooth and mellow. I've just bought the 15 year old which is even better...hence 4 stars.

    Beautiful, after trying and enjoying lots of other single malts it's always a joy to come back to this one! It's popular for a reason, it's damn good! Add a splash of water and enjoy those flavours come through so smooth!

    Don't disregard this wonderful scotch as a 'beginners' single malt. Every time I revisit Glenfiddich 12 it reminds me just what a fantastic whisky it truly is among other single malts in its range.

    It may be one of the most well known brands but it is one of the best. People say its only for beginners but that is rubbish. Its very well made and very good quality. That is why it sells so well and its not made by you know who, and that makes it even better.

    A beginners malt whisky. Uninspiring, pleasant enough. Light and delicate, medium bodied at best. Mellow nose and palate, so ideal for someone new to single malts. Legs are thick and slow running indicating an old whisky with oils present. Would imagine a newcomer to single malt would move on to richer and more multilayered whiskies. Nice to give to visitors who are not fussy about putting ice or drowning their whisky with water. A nice and appropriate introductory malt.

    This is the very first single malt I've tried and I'm very happy with it. Great for a drink while commuting with others and great scotch - starter for anyone wanting to take up whiskey/scotch.

    It's the single-malt that is nearly everyone's first - Glenfiddich. Perhaps it is it's popularity and commonality that make this one so humdrum, because it's not abad scotch at all. However, there are just so many other similar scotches in this style that are far better. Glenfiddich boasts a real apples and vanilla nose that doesn't scare away but doesn't exactly blow one's mind either. For my money, I prefer the floral apple notes of Glenlivet for the same price, or if one is willing to dole out a bit more cash, the Glenmorangie Original runs circles around practically all lighter scotches in this sort of style. It's the "Smoke on the Water" of single-malts - the one everyone tries first, a classic. But to me, it's a rather everyday affair.
