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.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
This is the rather fairly priced (when compared to other 40yo officials by other distillers) new wonder!
Dark amber with red hues.
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.
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.
Long, more on fruit skins and jams. Very pleasant fruity and resinous bitterness. Faint tannicity and liquorice in the aftertaste.
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.

I bought this several years ago for $550 Canadian and just finished the bottle. Wish I bought two at the time. Simply delicious
It's Christmas in your mouth! Delicious. Very glad I have two bottles ready and waiting :-)
Excellent!!!! and probably one of the best values you can find anywhere, sad to say the price is already jumping up.
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.
Great dram! Great price
