Killing Whisky History, Episode 21: Glenfiddich early '90s versus today's Glenfiddich 12

Welcome to a special February full of Special Reserve! I'm devoting this entire month to four decades (two centuries!) of Glenfiddich's entry level single malt. We know it now as their 12 year old expression, but it's had other names. Special Reserve, Special Old Reserve. Pure Malt, Straight Malt, Single Malt, Signature Malt. 8 year old, 10 year old, ??? year old.

I'm kicking it all off with this video, a comparison of early 1990s Glenfiddich Special Reserve and the current version of Glenfiddich 12.

On Monday, it's all about Glenfiddich's history. Then, starting on Wednesday, I'll work backwards from the newer bottlings to the dustier stuff. The Teens back to the Seventies. It's the best way to spend National Children's Dental Health Month, really.
