Glenfiddich 12 vs. 15

Glenfiddich 12 vs 15Glenfiddich 12 vs 15. These siblings are quite similar, but of course the attentive sipper is always rewarded.

The base flavor for the 12 is salty pear. For the 15 I get brown sugar and walnut. The official marketing says honey, but I’m not quite sold on that. No smoke or peat in the Glenfiddich family.

The finish on the 12 has more of the briny bite where the 15 just tapers off with only a tiny nip.

Overall I would say the 12 is brighter, livelier where the 15 is darker and more sublime.

Which is better? That’s up to you!
