A full 60% abv, yet the sweet, rich, spicy distillery character is still very much in evidence. A very small drop of water is recommended to open up the flavours.

    What a great dram for those long winter nights, sweet nose, sherry influence is quite dramatic, when freshly poured there is a strong apple note developing into freshly made toffee. needs time to open up fully. A few drops of water help to bring the sherry more foreward. there is almost a slight sulpur tinge to it for a short spell while it opens up bit more.left for a longer time 15 -20 mins or more it really shows a creamy caramel nose.The body, as many have noted a spicy, full on mouthful definitely not for the faint-hearted. strong berry notes after a min or so. personally i find the finish similar to a good South Australian shiraz. it''s got a good strong spicy berry note. Fantastic whisky for the price.

    Nose: The beginning is like your nose was run over by a Sherry Train.. wow so much of it!! Along with it comes notes of dark chocolate.. bold spices...pears...possibly some wood and vanilla in there too.. Palate: The palate's like a continuation of the sherry dominance.. although not as dry as you'd expect it to be.. there's the characteristic sweetness .. with a lot of black pepper and cinnamon spices.. there was also some nutty notes in the mix Finish: This was a Sherry story so every aspect of this expression had profound influence from the cask.. the finish too was drying .. fairly long.. and spicy too.. some where in there were also hints of mild smoke in the background To be honest.. its a decent dram but.. definitely didn't get me going wow about it. However given all the awards that this has won.. I'm very tempted to have to give it another shot.. and this time with some watering down to probably get some of that magic that I missed this time around..

    Huge tasting whisky! Incredible value for money, especially since it can be diluted quite a bit. Even with half water it's still full of flavour. But can also be drunk neat! Highly recommended...

    A great whisky. I've tried the 15 and the 21 but 105 is a brilliant addition. A very strong dram and the taste really opens up with water (actually found I had to put a little more in than I normally would due to the alcohol %). My only disappointment is the cork. This is the 2nd bottle I've had and both corks snapped. I am very careful when opening and haven't had it happen on any other whiskies. Googled it and seems to be a very common problem with the 105. A real shame!

    just been tasting it alongside the Glen elgin 16 yr old which I love and trying to find a winner. Certainly a much more rounded and warmer dram than the A'bunadh that it's compared to above. my 1970 family casks glenfarclas is unfortunately only opened for very special evenings!

    If you like a big unique flavor, this is the one. It has a large Sherry influence, but is very different from Aberlour A'bunadh. This is a malt that needs to breath for a while, to be at its best. This is one of my staple malts.

    Wow this is powerfull stuff.I drink a lot of scotch, but i had to mix a little cola with it so i could drink this drop.It has smoke and toasty notes and a heavy alcohol taste.Drink this one sparingly with good friends and a good cigar.

    Are you mad. While I love the deep rich textures of a glenfarclas 12 and beyond the 105 is a strong brew that only the truely aquired pallet can appreciate. Love it or hate it, it has everything and a little bit more
