Glenfiddich Millennium Vintage 2012

P1230015Today is the day to write about the Glenfiddich Millennium Vintage 2012.  

After a long and hard struggle I finally decided to open the bottle. I’m sorry that I can’t tell you the exact reason, it was a feeling I had. And a good feeling that was.

 

After opening the fabulous shaped green bottle, my heart was pounding. What will my nose smell and more important, will my taste buds be satisfied and how is the finish?

  • Name: Glenfiddich (Millennium Vintage 2012)
  • Type: Single Malt
  • Country: Scotland
  • Price: € 75,-

What does the bottle tells us? The front label tells us: The Glenfiddich Millennium Vintage 2012 is distilled during the Millennium Celebrations of 2000 and bottled by malt master Brian Kinsman from personally selected casks in 2012. The label on the back: After being matured in European and American oak casks for 12 years, this limited edition single vatting is exclusively finished in bourbon barrels for 2 months to layer in extra flavours of intense vanilla and rich fruit ……  You can imagine —– > I’m excited!

  • Color: Lovely gold
  • Nose: Green apple, oranges, sweet honey, coconut, melon and a complexity of ripe pears smashed with kiwi and mandarin
  • Taste: Lovely granny smiths, fruitiness, with the kiwi and mandarin again. and cappuccino covered with white chocolate
  • Finish: Medium soft

I love this whisky. From the 1st sip, but not the last. Still have some left in the bottle and the good news is .. I’ve made samples. The Glenfiddich Millennium Vintage 2012 is a whisky you have to experience and enjoy on a windy day or a summer evening with a sea-breeze … alone or with friends.

Suggestions: I prefer pure…. it’s a soft whisky. No ice! That’s a killer!

Grade

I give this whisky an 8.5 out of 10.
