General description

The Glenfarclas Vintage 2004 on my desk is a special double cask/cask strength (58,6%) bottling for the dutch market.
This 1 of 607 bottles is 11Y old and received no filtering nor additional colouring.

First nosing was a bit methylated, but that problem was solved after adding some water. A nice sweet but slight bitter dry sherry revealed itself . Some marzipan and dried fruits and a spicy nutmeg complete the nosing experience. Very nice.

First tasting also begged for some dillution. After water killed all the rough edges, a nice creamy sherry stayed. Dried fruits and some bitter coffee/chocolate made this one nicely balanced.

The very long spicy finish was a bit oaky dry with a nice teethcovering pepery sherry.
Yummi, sad that i didn't have more than a sample of this one.
If you like sherry and cask strength and you can grab one of these, i would advise you to go for it.
Again a very advisable dram from the beautiful Glenfarclas distilley.
