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.

Glenfarclas 105 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Deep peaty-gold.

    Nose: Complex, oaky, apples and pears, and a tempting dark toffee sweetness.

    Flavour: Dry and assertive, develops quickly to reveal a rich spiciness, combined with a hint of oak and sherried fruit.

    Finish: Amazingly smooth for the strength; wonderfully warming and with a lingering smokiness, yet very rounded.

    Comment: A great whisky holding all the flavours of all the Glenfarclas in one glass. Being so warming, this is the perfect Hogmanay dram. Don’t be afraid of the strength and order a 210, if you dare!

    The smoothness makes the 105 drinkable at cask strength, but I suggest adding a little water to fully explore its great depth.

    You would think that this Whisky would be a bit harsh with the strength but it isn't. Just a few drops of water and it has a lovely smooth flavour. A good dram for a cold night with a good book and a warm fire.

    If i have to describe it in two words they would be HONEST and FRANK. Though it actually deserves four stars i grant it five with clear conscience just because honesty is what lacks nowadays. In these fake and deceptive times this whisky brings me back the faith that things could be done in "old school" manner. Thank you Glenfarclas, great job, this single malt is to whiskies what AK47 is to weapons - rough, tough and unrefined, but yet uncompromising. P.S. I like it neat - to my opinion even a few drops of water or single ice cube muddle it.

    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..
