    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.

    Glenfiddich 12 was my first single malt scotch and I couldn't recommend it enough to anyone wishing to start off with whiskey drinking. I had it neat and it was just perfect -- smooth, with a delightful nose and a very pleasant taste. It was unlike anything else I've had (blends). I've had several other single malts since, this is still my favorite.

    I had a Glenfiddich 12 year as a gift. After emptying a bottle of another "fine" scotch this still is the best for me . A lot of other labels do carry a lot of class and are a real nice tipple but this is still the benchmark in my book . No matter what the reason is to have a glass its never out of place on any desk or table. Top spot

    I love it. its my favorite. I don't want to drink blends after this, nor drink american whiskey either. Glenfiddich 18 yr old is great too -even better- but costs a little more.

    Perfect Starter Scotch. Little Harsh Straight, but with a drop of water or a small chunk of ice and 10-15 minutes breathing room It's delicious.

    Nose of green apples, pear, pear drops, verging on solventy. Profile continues through the taste with some oakyness. Its generally regarded as smooth, but I found it a little harsh. Having recently had the Glenfarclas 10 at barely any more expensive, it blows this one away.

    My first entry into Single Malt scotch and find it to be very good.
