Glenfiddich 12 Year Scotch
Spirit: Scotch Whisky, Single Malt; 80 Proof (40% Alcohol); Retail $30
Glenfiddich is a great introduction to single malt scotch whisky if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. This currently retails for $30 and is very drinkable. Even for those who would go to a bar and not want to pay top dollar, this is a great go-to Scotch.
It is an easy drinker at 80 Proof (40% alcohol), so not a lot of heat, just a touch of smoke, and a bit of sweetness. I would not put ice or water in this, but if you wish to have it “on the rocks”, please not more than one rock (one ice cube). Enjoy it for what it is.
Distiller’s Notes: Flowing in the Valley of the Deer since 1887, our family’s signature expression is the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky.
With a unique freshness from the same Highland spring water we’ve used since 1887, its distinctive fruitiness comes from the high cut point William Grant always insisted upon.
Carefully matured in the finest American oak and European oak sherry casks for at least 12 years, it is mellowed in oak marrying tuns to create its sweet and subtle oak flavours.
Creamy with a long, smooth and mellow finish, our 12 Year Old is the perfect example of Glenfiddich’s unique Speyside style and is widely proclaimed the best dram in the valley.
