Dutch Apple Pie With Glenfiddich 12 Or 18 Year Old

The Netherlands is renowned for its apple pies, and there’s a dram to suit all the different varieties. If the pie is light and fruity, the fresh pear notes of the 12 Year Old strikes the perfect balance of flavours. If the pie has a richer taste and includes cinnamon and raisins, pair it with our fuller bodied Glenfiddich 18 Year Old. By Tony van Rooijen - The Netherlands
