Glenfiddich 12 years old

The Glenfiddich 12 years old has been on my list for a while. I immediately dive into a fascinating history.

More than a century ago William Grant  began building his modest distillery. He had never imagined that some day Glenfiddich would be the world’s most popular Single Malt Scotch Whisky, that would be sold in 180 countries. Imagine that …. Just one intelligent man William Grant was.

The Glenfiddich was exceptional and unsurpassed. The family had achieved this through hard work and perseverance. Using the crystal pure water from the Robbie Dhu springs, the barley, the pure air of the Highlands and the uncommonly small stills.

Five generations later, William Grant & Sons Ltd, is one of the few Scottish distilleries still owned by the family of the founder. The descendants of William Grant, who now own the business, sharing his pioneering spirit and long-term vision.  This is fim worthy!

  • Name: Glenfiddich
  • Country: Scotland
  • Type: Single Malt
  • Price per standard amount:€ 28,00

Glenfiddich 12 years old is the most popular single malt Scotch Whisky in the world.
This is sold worldwide in over 180 countries.The whisky is matured for at least twelve years in oak barrels. ( Just can’t share this enough .. )

 

Glenfiddich is the only Highland whisky distilled, matured and bottled at its own distillery.

  • Color: Light gold
  • Nose: Fresh and fruity with a hint of pear
  • Taste: wealthy fruit flavors, a touch of pine wood and pea
  • Finish: Pure,  fruity and long

I find the flavor delicious. The scent flatters my nose and almost flapping. And even with some water it’s tasty. The fantastic history of this distillery also works great on the taste buds, I notice. There was too much information to put down here at this tme. But if you wish… there is away time to find. Just find the clock or the rabbit who played in Alice in Wonderland… tik tak, I’m going to be late.

Would you just like me, just go back in time and see it up close?

It’s a perfect whisky to start with…  considering the price!

Suggestions: Just Pure…. or small drops of water.

Grade

I give this whisky an 8 out of 10.

      • Greetings Dubber and Clutch! I just discovered your blog hinvag searched for whisky for beginners or some such. My husband and I descend from Scotlan and I from Ireland, Wales, England so before we take our honeymoon to Scotland (after FOUR years of marriage!) we figured we’d better learn to drink whisky. This looks like a good place to get advice on that! Naturally I want that bottle of whisky you customized but considering that I live in the U.S. even if I DID win the shipping would be out of this world. So I’ll content myself with reading your whisky-dramming adventures and hope the Bushnells gives us a good start. Slainte!
