What some of our whisky loving friends have said about Glenfiddich The Original
Quote 1 “If you go in with the expectation of trying something game changing, you will get disappointed. However, if you consider what this whisky is trying to do, you should at least give it the benefit of the doubt.
The Original is Glenfiddich’s attempt at taking us back in time. Back when a single malt wasn’t common; back when blended whisky was ‘whisky’. This here’s something fresh. I do stand by my praise of this malt, but the pricing is also my only real complaint, it’s a tad too steep for what it is.
All in all a pretty decent malt. Although mind the price, you should only buy this if you’re interested in trying sth interesting or want a splendid whisky for beginners.”
