Glenfiddich 12 is the signature single malt from the Glenfiddich Distillery. Matured for at least 12 years in a combination of ex-bourbon casks and some sherry casks, this is a bottle that pretty much defines the Speyside style of scotch. Interestingly, between 2002 and 2008, the Glenfiddich 12 used to be called Caoran Reserve.
Nose: Distinctively fresh and fruity with a hint of pear. Beautifully crafted and delicately balanced. A lot of grain on the nose with some malt and honeey.
Taste: Characteristic sweet, fruity notes. Develops into butterscotch, cream, malt and subtle oak flavours.
Finish: A long smooth and mellow finish.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Glenfiddich 12
Quote 1 “This is a very nice whisky. It is not very strong smelling at all, but when it comes to tasting you forget all about that – with strong hints of apple and a bit of pear, and a strong finish with what I think tastes just like cream. Brilliant taste, great bottle design. I would highly recommend.
Quote 2 “Not a bad whisky at all. The nose is very pleasant with a lot of apple coming through, underneath a bit of vanilla, though not much else going on there. It has a very creamy mouthfeel with flavours of apples (maybe pears) taking centre stage. I also get a pretty noticeable honeysuckle sort of note from this though not many people seem to mention that so it might just be my imagination. The finish is very bright with a medium length. Overall, it’s nice but a bit predictable, almost to the point of being boring. Definitely a great introduction to the world oh Speyside scotch though as this really is a classic scotch experience..”
