I feel sorry to make a good movie reference to a whisky that sucks but it kinda suits here:
There Will Be Blood was a good movie but it describes the feelings I had after a taste of the Glenfiddich 12 year old. Unlike Daniel Plainview, played by Daniel Day-Lewis, I'm not that keen on oil.
Even though the movie was good, it was a bit benumbing to watch towards the end. That's exactly what happened with Glenfiddich 12. Oil was literally dripping down my throat. It would have been OK if the other parts of this whisky had been good. They weren't...
Nose: Floral and malty. Some honey notes as well but the nose gives you a stingy report on what's coming.
Taste: Light and a bit watery for me. Floral notes are still there combined with spices but it has no character. All the flavors are very flat.
Finish: Oak and oil are the only things I can spot. Just very oily for my taste. I guess I should try to get some more tastes from it but I just gave up.
Overall: This is consistent – too bad it's a consistency of no character. Rough and light at the same time in a bad way.
