See

A golden stag proudly presents its antlers on the bottle. In dark green and gold, the bottle and outer packaging look very noble. A successful and harmonious design.

Smell

Sweetly, the Scotch reminds us of bright fruits, such as ripe pears and apples. A hint of honey is perceptible in the background. Like the bottle - an elegantly balanced composition.

Taste

Not too complex and rather straightforward, we taste mild and balanced fresh fruits. A light honey aroma also crystallises.

Finish

Very briefly, a little oak and a slight bitterness remain.

Conclusion

Suitable for beginners in any case: everyone has probably had Glenfiddich 12 Years in their glass at least once. With its mild and soft character, it is very accessible. As a classic, it can also be offered to guests who have not yet dealt intensively with single malts.
