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.

    After browsing drinks by the dram for some miniatures to sample before buying a bottle i came across this, truthfully it was the % that lured me in. But wow im so glad i did will definitely purchase a bottle beautiful whiskey smokey smell and a lovely sherry cask flavouring.

    There are some cask strength sherry bombs which attract more interest (and higher prices). But for me, this offers just as much. Dried fruit, marzipan, sherry and an unbelievable hit of warmth (especially neat). Great stuff. I always try to keep a bottle in my collection!

    Just bought this again and new bottle is best batch I've ever tasted. Wonderful sherry, nutty flavours and diluting with water to 45% approx. really brings out lovely aromas, tastes and a great lingering finish... very, very good and amazing value for this cask strength, 1 Litre bottle!

    Exceptional. Only purchased the 20cl and I’m regretting it! This really is a fantastic dram and for the price an absolute snip. Incredibly flavoursome and moreish. A must try.

    The 60% abv is not for the faint hearted and it definitely wasn't for me. I personally found the high alcohol content too much and as such over powered any other flavours. I gave it a try throughout the whole bottle but I won't be buying this one again.

    Drinking neat: Nose is full on Fino Sherry bomb, spice, hint of sulphur, curry, tannins, rough oak, & maybe some burnt caramel. Taste is very rich and decadent (if it's to hot for you, I challenge you to take smaller sips. Like, just enough to touch your tongue small), sweet, winey, floral, syrupy. The nose is really not that enjoyable, but once it touches your tongue the whisky coats it with a warming syrupy sweet elixir and seems to evaporate and warm the entire inside of your mouth. The 60% worried me a bit and I was expecting to have to add water; so I only pored half the sampler. Once I took a sip or two I was shocked at how easy drinking this mammoth was and eventually pored the entire 50ml sampler in my glass and am happily sipping it. Would I buy it? Probably not. But it is definitely worth a try.

    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..

    Huge tasting whisky! Incredible value for money, especially since it can be diluted quite a bit. Even with half water it's still full of flavour. But can also be drunk neat! Highly recommended...

    A great whisky. I've tried the 15 and the 21 but 105 is a brilliant addition. A very strong dram and the taste really opens up with water (actually found I had to put a little more in than I normally would due to the alcohol %). My only disappointment is the cork. This is the 2nd bottle I've had and both corks snapped. I am very careful when opening and haven't had it happen on any other whiskies. Googled it and seems to be a very common problem with the 105. A real shame!
