Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine

Nose
Big and concentrated with masses of rose hip syrup cut with fresh varnish. There's hints of camphor and incense along with plenty of dried fruits/Xmas pudding and prune.

Palate
Yes, there are big tannins on show but there's a balancing rich soft sweetness. Masses of liquorice and plenty of bruised black fruits.

Finish
Long, slightly bitter and powerful.

Comments
For sherry fiends certainly but it's certainly got balance.

9/10

Producer's Notes

Rich copper - like the colour that has developed on a Glenfarclas still, which has been in use for at least 3 years.

Cola Cubes, sweet and dry on the nose, an interesting combination. Light tannins, more from Burgundy wine than a big Bordeaux. Almost like a polished segment of sandalwood, a very fragrant whisky.

Smooth and very palatable, leaves you wanting more. Not as dry on the palate as it is on the nose.

Long, delicate, lightly leathery, a very typical Glenfarclas.
