A remarkably well-priced addition to the Glenfarclas range, this 40yo has been simply-packaged in line with the rest of the standard bottlings from the distillery, and has been bottled at the perfect drinking strength of 46%. A 40yo sherried Speyside designed for drinking rather than sitting on a mantlepiece or in a display cabinet - bravo. Awarded a very well-merited Gold Medal at the Malt Maniacs Awards 2010.

    • Comment

      This is the rather fairly priced (when compared to other 40yo officials by other distillers) new wonder!

    • Colour

      Dark amber with red hues.

    • Nose

      Ultra-typical old sherried Glenfarclas, full of chocolate, raisins, prunes and then touches of mint, liquorice and varnish/pine resin. Also hints of blackcurrant buds, blackberry jam and finally a little coffee, smoked ham and toasted bread. Also a little walnut stain and maybe poppy seeds. In short, a classic.

    • Mouth

      Excellent attack, with a flavourful oakiness (black pepper sauce alike) and various liqueur-filled chocolates. Chocolate-covered prunes. Goes on with fresh and clean notes of blood oranges, raspberry liqueur and just a few herbal notes that may hint at well-aged chartreuse. Hints of cough syrup.

    • Finish

      Long, more on fruit skins and jams. Very pleasant fruity and resinous bitterness. Faint tannicity and liquorice in the aftertaste.

    • Comments

      I think it’s a good example of an old malt where an obvious oakiness brings more substance and complexity. Very well composed and worth its fair price, no doubt about that. SGP:562 - 91 points.

    Fantastic 40 yo whisky, probably one of the best and most affordable. But recently the prices have been rising. So get some whilst it is still affordable.
