GLENFIDDICH 12 Year Old CNY Gift (Limited Edition Design 2023)
GLENFIDDICH 12 Year Old Gift Pack limited Edition Design 2023, Ushering a new cycle in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, Glenfiddich collaborates with Shenzhen-based artist Rlon Wang to create limited-edition festive packs for its core range of single malts exclusively for the upcoming festive season. These colourful illustrations can be seen across the 12 Year Old, 15 Year Old and 18 Year Old editions, exploring the mystique of Glenfiddich’s royal stag icon and chronicling the epic journey its founders made over a century ago.
Glenfiddich, which translates Valley of the Deer in Gaelic, takes on the royal stag as its iconic symbol of majesty and prominence in the single malt scotch whisky industry. Wang captures the spirit of the animal with a richly detailed illustration that accentuates the 12-pointed antlers that denotes its ‘royal’ classification, while the flowing ribbon and medal around its neck symbolise Glenfiddich’s status as the world’s most-awarded single malt.
The Glenfiddich 12-year-old is a classic to many and a reliable whisky to pour without too much effort. It’s also potentially the greatest omission on MALT until now, believe it or not. This Glenfiddich staple comes in the iconic bottle shape and symbolises easy drinking. This explains its availability, popularity and go-to nature as a starter dram. I’ve heard the phrase starter dram with increasing frequency and probably utilised it myself now and again. Literally, it could be deemed as saying mouthwash as that’s what you’re using the whisky to do. In essence, waking up the palate and preparing for more serious and demanding whiskies ahead
The Glenfiddich 12-year-old is an ideal mixer with ginger beer or Irn Bru if Scotland delivers some sunshine this year. It’s far from the complex malt on the palate that the marketing proclaims. A shame overall, but it remains well liked by many and if you’re enjoying the experience then who cares really?
