Member Reviews and Ratings of Glenfiddich 12 Year Old
Easy to drink. Nothing crazy though. A little spicy, not too smoky.
Not too spicy or bitter. Great with an ice cube or a splash of cold water.
As a standard in the Glenfiddich realm, this 40% Abv. can hold it's own amongst vastness of Speyside distilleries. Pears, green apples, maybe a hint of savory smoke. I enjoy this as a precursor to a meal or a flight. But usually enjoy throughout the evening.
Great whiskey overall. Light and fresh with notes of butterscotch and pear.
Lacks complexity big time
Nice flavors, smooth finish, but lacks in complexity.
floral, light leather taste, smokey, smooth, and creamy.
Strong notes, but not as smoky as one might like. It has a strong bite at the beginning but finishes smooth.
Hints of apple and pear with an okay finish. Smooth, but lacking in complexity.
Very smokey and had a nice end note of vanilla. The finish was a little harsh initially so tasted best with a ice cube
when you sit with it, the nose starts to smell like latex medical gloves. I dont DISLIKE it but I prefer Glenlivet 12 to this. The Macallan 12 to both.
Great for mixing, cut with just a bit of soda. Not too harsh, just a basic, decent whiskey.
Not much flavor, but in fairness, it was at a bar, and the bottle could have been old. Not much smoke, not too sweet, not much heat.
Fine sipping. Not too complex. Apple.
Great taste for the price range, not very smoky
Green Apple, Pear, Vanilla
Classic scotch whisky, really nice and definitely my benchmark whisky.
I like this. Similar to Glenlivet 12, but perhaps a bit more oak. Still a smooth drinking scotch...not very complex.
Like it. Little heat. Better NO ice
You cant beat the price for such a Scotch. Full of flavor and a balanced aftertaste. One that I enjoyed.
Good starter scotch, very simple flavors.
Strong green apple and pear flavor up front. Slightly spicy on the lingering finish. Enjoyable
An okay whiskey, good for scotch drinks, maybe not for sipping.
Very light and fruity.
A very straightforward whiskey that isn’t going to shock you, but is fantastic for the price.
Nice light and floral, sweet taste of apple. Can't go wrong with a nice mild scotch at a low price.
Undoubtedly a Speyside Scotch. This super smooth, slightly sweet whiskey will please most palates, especially a new Scotch sipper.
Classic Speyside scotch
A bright slightly musty Whisky, the nose matches the initial mouth feel with apple and pears. The musty nose goes away from the taste being brighter. It has a fairly long finish with some oak and spice. Not super complex, but is fun to pick out the evolution from nose to finish.
A most for those dipping their toes (not literally) into Whisky. Friendly, fruity (pears, green apples), juicy, sweet, simple but not boring. Overall, a great one to start your Whisky journey and to enjoy in the spring/summer time.
Really well rounded for my tastes. Juicy green fruits up front, with a moderate finish. I believe this is my new go-to.
No bad, a little more bite than I’m used to
Great introductory scotch. Nothing overwhelming about its flavor and ultimately forgettable after finding your whisky preference.
underwhelming, after drinking the 15 year old solera reserve
Great Scotch. Flavor does not disappoint.
The nose is a bit buttery and light. The initial flavor to me is oaky with hints of spice, that lingers into a light caramel and hints of green apple. I didn't get the super strong green apple flavor that others seem to get, it seems more woody/spicy to me. A fairly standard dram, nothing overly special but it's inexpensive and decent.
I’m usually a Glenlivet guy, but I changed it up and was impressed. You get a lot more Oak and green apple taste with Glenfiddich. A good refreshing change up to the mix
"Starke Nase nach Äpfeln und Honig, ebenfalls starker, klassischer Geschmack
Great for the price! Will be coming back to this one a lot!
Good beginner scotch with nice amounts of green apple, pear, vanilla with some oak. Finishes a little spicy at the end though.
Very good Scotch! I like the spice at the end and how smooth it is to begin with. Definitely will keep this one in the home bar!
Nice everyday whisky :) as my favorite Ralfy says it’s the best to water your whistle before drinking something serious. It’s not too sweet which I like a lot :)
Love this scotch. Not too bitey. Smooth good flavor.
Good all round drink for every day drinking
Great nose of tree fruit, honey, and a dash of peat. Decent palate, could use a drop of water.
Good, smooth, a go to in your cabinet.
Simple, soft- certainly not overwhelming. Easy to drink & a gratifying evening companion.
A bit aggressive and requires a lot of attention to appreciate. Too fruity for my tastes, though it might work well as a summer treat with soda water.
Sweet, definitely taste the pear and apples. Smooth with a medium finish, a good choice if you don't care for smoke.
Flavor spiral is right on. The honey and sweet pear hits you immediately. This is a good one to introduce scotch to friends.
Just a standard scotch, nothing special or fancy.
A wonderful starting point for your adventure into the scotch whisky world. Simple, but can offer some more if you are patient.
Made me understand that 1 little glass per afternoon makes the bottle empty before the 1st month. It is not too soft not too spicy. It has the perfect balance of them both for me, with nutty and wood-like strong flavors which makes it my favorite single malt till this day.
My first single malt experience come from this bottle.
Classic dram. An old friend.
Best single malt speyside for my pallet. I don't cut this beauty. Neat all the way.
