Proof66 Notes

The Glenfiddich "The Original" Single Malt Scotch is meant to be a re-creation (offered in a retro looking bottle) of the scotch made famous in 1963 that they claim inaugurated the single malt scotch category. They say one of the signature differences is the prominence of sherry cask aging in that era compared to the more common ex-bourbon cask aging of the modern scotch world. The recipe was re-created from stocks of historic whisky stored on site at Glenfiddich.

So...I would say this is as good as the standard 12, no worse, no better...though it is a different taste. It does have that characteristic glenfiddich slight oiliness, which has never been a bad thing...I certainly don't get a lot of sherry here though. worth a try.
