General description

A personal favorite to bring out for parties of people who have started to venture out from their norm. An affordable whisky for the age you are getting it at. This was the first whisky I discovered dust and leather notes.

General description

great, rich, gently matured, complex, old malt

Nose

very soft and mild, already comparatively complex (way more complex than the 18 YO); a little bit of warm sweetness, a little bit of coffee and oak aromas, grapy sweetness, dates, sherry aromas; getting deeper and more heavy with some time; a little citrus aroma, more oak, a slight hint of tobacco; very late some apricot aroma

Palate

rich fruity (mature), oak and spices, a little bit less fruity than the aroma suggests; later on some figs and raisins, gentle hints of coffee

Finish

again more fruity and sweeter, very dark and dried fruits, oak begins gentle but stays long

General description

Very gentle, a lot of fruity notes, but dominated by a grape note. Some malt notes and sweet notes of barley sugar and raisins as well. Oily and wood complexity in the back, but no wood spice. Great, but not what you'd expect. lacks the pop that would lead to a second bottle

General description

A 21 yo going on 17 yo. Good balance but lacks complexity and outspoken character. Would benefit from a higher ABV

Nose

86

typical sherried nose: red fruits (raspberries, cherries), some candy and licorice, a not too outspoken wood note, herbal elements (sage and thyme, some clove and nutmeg), also some sulfury and musty notes. Adding water drowns things, unfortunately.

Taste

85

Less diverse than the nose. Dense, with red fruits and dried nuts leading the way with a slightly, not unpleasant wood bitterness. adding water livens things up, but also makes things a bit sharp

Finish

82

rather short, dry and woody. longer after addnig some water with nutoil joining in, making it a slightly sticky.

General description

Glenfarclas is consistently appealing for its notable sherry flavors and excellent value. This offering is no different. Sweet and fruity nose - orange, sherry, and chocolate stand out. Refreshing as it hits the palate with dark chocolate, honey and citrus peels. Creamy and buttery with a mildly spicy finish - the dram is both smooth and tasty. Excellent value and a must buy in its age range.

Very enjoyable. Im allways happy to pour myself a glass of this sherry heaven. But personal preference says GlenDronach for sherry whiskies. This is quite different though and Im happy to have tried it.
