This is our 12 year old expression it’s our key expression in our collection of whiskies that are the worlds most awarded single malts. When the whisky first flows from the copper stills is as clear is as the Robbie Dhu Spring. We then put it into American and European oak casks for at least 12 years so that’s where that beautiful golden color comes from.
So let’s have a nose of this whisky, take your time what does it make you think of? Is it a sweet shop, is it an orchard? If it’s fruity is it dried fruits, is it fresh fruits maybe slightly spicy. For me I get a distinctly pear aroma from here. And it’s that key pear note that sets our Glenfiddich 12 apart from all the other whiskies, now lets try a taste. So if you think, it smelled fruity, and now it tastes fruity, it’s also quite sweet so right on the tip of your tongue you should feel a nice vanilla sweetness, and then think about how does it make your mouth feel? Is it dry, is it oily is it slightly spicy? For me this is really long and warming and quite sweet, the great thing is the flavour doesn’t stop there. It keeps evolving in the glass So try it again.
So it’s a lovely creamy kind of malty character and just a hint of subtle oak, and because of the unique oak marrying tuns we use here at the distillery every single bottle is uniquely high in quality and taste with that distinctive smooth character.
