Glenfiddich The Original
Glenfiddich // Speyside, Scotland
In 1963, Glenfiddich more or less invented the commercial of category of "single malt." The Original is an attempt to recreate the feel and flavor of that iconic first malt. It really is your grandfather's whisky!
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"A bright, biscuit-y nose, full of youth but not aggressive. Tastes of malt and grass, honey and pears. Maybe a bit of toasted nuttiness. Not particularly memorable. Just a good, old fashioned scotch. Definitely a young whisky, but still nicely balanced. Finish is short and pleasant. A solid, uncomplicated dram, but for the price it just doesn't offer enough. "
