As it is for many, Glenfiddich 12 and The Glenlivet 12 were my introduction to the world of single malts. I recently found 5cl sample bottles of the 12, 15, and 18 and decided to do a vertical tasting.
Nose: Wheat, pear, floral, faint paint thinner.
Palate: Mild. White fruit, rose water, nutmeg.
Finish: Fairly Short. Pear, oak, mild.
This is a light malt compared to my regulars, but it is easy to understand why it has become the best selling scotch in the world. The flavors are pleasant and non-confrontational. The price is also quite reasonable.
