Rich and sherried 15yo malt from one of the best distilleries in Speyside. Aged for a little bit longer and bottled a little stronger for a more concentrated, richer flavour. As always, Glenfarclas remains one of the best-value malts on the market – a must for lovers of sherried whisky.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Complex and full, with heather honey, sweet vanilla fudge and dark fruit – raisins and plums.

    • Palate

      Rich and oily texture, with layers of marzipan, fruity sherry and spicy cinnamon and ginger.

    • Finish

      Lingering with brown-sugar sweetness and fruit.

  • Producer's Notes by George Grant

    • Colour

      A rich golden amber.

    • Nose

      Complex, sherried, deliciously peated, light butterscotch aromas, with a hint of dried fruit.

    • Flavour

      Full bodied with super balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavours.

    • Finish

      Long lasting, gloriously sherried, sweet, gently smoky, and distinguished.

    • Comment

      With greater complexity than our younger whiskies, this is a great whisky drinker’s whisky. We bottle this at 46% simply because my grandfather preferred it at this strength. It’s still a family favourite.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Sugared raisins, honey and a big cinnamon spicy hit.

    • Palate

      Buttery with brown sugar, allspice, more cinnamon and the rest of the brown ground spices hiding at the back of the cupboard.

    • Finish

      Long, with sweet grapes, more spice, brown butter and the ever-present cinnamon tingle.

    • Comment

      The story goes that this is bottled at 46% as a nod to one of the earlier George Grants, who wanted to balance the taste of the whisky against getting enough out of a special Christmas release to go around the entire family. Whatever the reason, the higher strength gives this a bit more oomph, which along with the Christmas cake, dried fruit and spiciness makes this a fantastic winter dram, and an excellent sherried all-rounder.

    I was bought a bottle as a gift and after never really giving much thought to sherry cask whisky’s im glad I got to try this! Fruity,slightly medicinal aromas on the nose with a fantastic fruity taste with smoke & cinnamon as well.Very pleasant and warming smoky finish. I'd definitely recommend this to others.

    What can I say? This was my first sherried whisky and I ordered it from The Whisky Exchange four years ago. Since then, I have not encountered a more enjoyable dram in this category. Loads of rich fruit. Like Christmas cake in a glass. Real star quality from a great distillery who seem to do things the right way. Slainte!

    A favourite of mine, smooth, well balanced whiskey with a subtle flavour. One of the best whiskys you will even sample. A very easy whisky to drink and one to savour from a consistantly good distillery.

    Being fairly new to whisky drinking, I knew just enough to know that I prefer sweet full-bodied malts, as opposed to heavily peated or light floral ones. I have tried about 10 different sherried single malts so far, and this is one of my two favourites. More complex than the 12yo Glen Dronach (my other favourite), so for a newbie like me, not quite as smooth and easy to drink. But, utterly delicious!
