Glenfiddich 12 year old is the best-selling single malt whisky in the world. There is a reason for this. Firstly, they make great whisky. Secondly, in the sixties they were the first to sell whisky as a single malt, and have lead the field ever since. All devotees of single malt owe them a huge debt of gratitude for this ground-breaking decision.
Whisky aficionados often look down on Glenfiddich because of its ubiquity. However, we think this is just snobbishness. It is an excellent Speyside dram worth its place on anyone’s top shelf.
