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.
Yes, there are big tannins on show but there's a balancing rich soft sweetness. Masses of liquorice and plenty of bruised black fruits.
Long, slightly bitter and powerful.
For sherry fiends certainly but it's certainly got balance.
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.
