Member Ratings and Notes

It's definitely not bad.  It's definitely not fantastic.  But 'Fiddich 12 is my "barometer" that I use to calibrate my palate and compare other single malts to. For that reason -- plus the fact that it's what I'm often drinking in a "bar bar" when I need a malt -- it's the whisky that I drink the most of, by far.


For me, it's a great example of a pleasing single malt that isn't very remarkable or interesting, yet I always enjoy it.  Fruity, sweet, and light with nutty notes.  Easy and easy and easy.

N: Fruit, caramel.
P: Very mild, sweet, oily.
F: The finish is overly sweet to me, almost sickly sweet, and turns-me off to an otherwise decent whiskey. 
For me one of the classic, simple all around whisky tastes that I compare most malts  to that are not sherried or peated.  Nose is simple vanilla and classic bourbon cask notes.  Palate is simply easy and drinkable and not in any way a stand-out.  But then again...that is what it is supposed to be.... 
I return to my first ever malt.  For years, this was the only whisky I drank.  Now, I pretty much only drink it in the airport.  The nose is sweet and fruity with fruit cocktail.  The palate reminds me why I drank it for so long, sweet, malty and extremely drinkable.  It's Glenfiddich 12, it almost defines the B-:  Good whisky, worth trying.
