Glenfiddich 12 YO, 40 %

Glenfiddich 12 YO - perfumeI attended a lovely ‘whisky dinner’ as a part of the foundation of Federation of Norwegian Whisky Societies earlier this year. The chef served whisky with every dish. One of the whiskies was Glenfiddich 12 YO.

I had not tasted this one before and thought it was exciting to get the chance. Actually I have only tasted two Glenfiddichs before; the 15 YO Solera and the 18 YO. My husband has written about Glenfiddich 18 YO.

Glenfiddich 12 YO is available at Vinmonopolet in Norway for NOK 459,90 (676001) and at Systembolaget in Sweden where the price is SEK 409 (nr. 440).

Nose (19/25): The smell was kind of artificial sweetness, like candy. A bit ‘off’, but not bad. Other than that I could only define perfume.

Taste (18/25): Quite light on the palate. The artificial sweetness and perfume dominated the taste as well… I am not a huge fan of perfume, so even if the whisky was smooth enough, this was not my kind of whisky.

Finish (18/25): In the end I could only taste the perfume…

Balance (18/25): Although this was too much perfume for me, I thought it was a balanced whisky. The artificial sweetness and perfume were consistent from start to end…

Score (73/100)
