Few distilleries can produce a spirit capable of dealing with half a century of maturation, even in the finest casks. Glenfarclas is one of them, and this bottling represents one of their finest hours.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    N:  Wow - where to start?  Marmalade initially, then sugared almonds, church pew, leather and burnt wood.  Constantly evolving - we find hot-buttered toast, fruitcake, golden syrup, prune, sweetpea, grapefruit and a faint hint of cocoa - chocolate orange, perhaps.  An absolutely bewitching nose that offers something new on every sniff. Incredible depth and balance.

    P:  Toasted oak, plenty of citrus (orange and grapefruit again), legumes, a healthy dash of pepper, syrup, honeyed oats, satsuma peel, brown sugar and some quite herby touches - but the main thrust is maltiness of amazing elegance and purity, perfectly counterpointing the fine-grained oak tannins. 

    F:  A long, warm, slow fade of perfectly-integrated malt, wood and pepper.  The complexity is breath-taking.

    C:  A captivating dram that makes you fall head over heels in love with whisky all over again.  This is single malt whisky of the kind that could only have come from a refill sherry cask of the most stupendous quality.  Adding water would be sacrilege when a malt wears its strength so lightly.  Be brave and take it as nature intended.
