Glenfarclas are perhaps best known for their heavily sherried bottlings. This time, however, we have been graced with something quite special... a 43 year old Glenfarclas matured in Cognac casks. As far as we know, there have been only a small handful of whiskies matured in Cognac casks (and from what we have been hearing, this one is absolutely gorgeous).

Glenfarclas 43 Year Old Cognac Cask Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Magazine

    Nose
    Very perfumed with an almost vinous quality to the nose. Blackberries, perfumed candles mixed with honeysuckle, ginseng, tamarind and a dunnage-like earthiness.

    Palate
    More wood apparent but only to add to the weird exoticism. Rancio galore. Plenty of musk and a pleasing bitterness - powdered clove, star anise and hints of vintage rhum agricole.

    Finish
    Spiced and long.

    Comments
    For me best neat. A must-have.

    9/10

  • Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet for Whisky Magazine

    Nose
    Intense, elegant, complex. Fruit and oak are intertwined in a luscious fragrant bouquet. Peaches stewed in honey. Dates and dried apricot. Sandalwood. Touch of incense. Walnut.

    Palate
    Silky, caressing. Again, a perfect integration of oak and fruit. So complex. Dried fruit like Dundee cake.

    Finish
    Lingering, elegantly nutty.

    Comments
    Incredibly "alive" for a 43 Years Old whisky. Absolutely wonderful. Fully matured or just finished in a cognc cask? Whatever, it worked superbly.

    9.2/10
