Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine

Nose
Quite 'open', even exposed, initially - there's wood, scented candles and incense - very religious! In time, a lovely dustiness takes over: rose petals.

Palate
Less dusty than the nose with more deep fruits, liquorice and a burnt edge. Seasonally it's late autumn with stout shoes tramping over wet leaves.

Finish
Long and Solid and Full.

Comments
A big, bold statement and with great balance between cask and spirit.

8.8/10

Producer's Tasting Notes

Powerful, treacle toffee, fudge. Like a freshly made pan of tablet and licking thick vanilla goo off a metal spoon.

Very fresh, a lot less sweet on the palate than you were experiencing on the nose. Grassy earthy notes also pushing their way through.

Medium finish Glenfarclas, lovely taste of fresh cut grass.
