I have several what I call sweet and easy to drink Whiskeys. I really love this whiskey nice color very nice scent and extremely Tasty.
Nice notes of honey, cinnamon, and sherry. Delicious and the perfect amount of sweetness
This is an excellent sherried malt. I've only ever had the 10 yr before andI believe the 12 yr is only available in the US. Its interesting to taste what two extra years in the cask does to a whisky. On the nose you get the same raisin and spice profile that you get with the 10 yr. On the palate you really notice the difference. The 10 yr has a strong malt presence with sherry in the background. This 12 yr has strong sherried fruit present mixed with nutmeg and cinnamon spice. The finish is long and dry. I think the dryness of Glenfarclas is what makes it unique. It may be that other whiskies use casks that once held sweeter sherry. I like this as much as I like Glendronach 12 which is saying something
This is a great 12 yr old from a great family owned distillery. I live in NYC and I believe this is only available for export. I've only ever had the 10 yr previously which is a fantastic entry level whisky. It's similar to the 10 but with more age. It is slightly darker in color. On the nose it has the same raisin and spice as the 10 yr. The palate is not quite as malty but the sherry presence is stronger than the 10. Strong sherried fruit, with honey and nutmeg and cinnamon. The finish is long and warm with the fruit and especially the spice lingering. Apparently they use casks from a very dry sherry which is what to me makes this whisky so unique: the sherry presence is just as strong as other whiskies, but the dryness stands out. Great stuff that I could not recommend more.
The first time that I've tried this scotch and I have to say , I was very pleasantly surprised. A good intense flavour , smooth and very enjoyable
Drinking neat: A VERY strange curry note dominates, Honey, spice, apple, nutty, herbal, sweet. A strange Scotch. A flavor and aroma profile I have never experienced before. It's so unique and so far off from the 10 year old, it makes me wonder if something went wrong with this batch. Luckily this was just a sampler and not an entire bottle. I'll have to try and revisit this one one day.
This is a bloody good whiskey, especially in its age group.... Has a long aftertaste with all types of flavors that open up...
Lovely stuff. Very glad I bought a litre of this. Tried back to back with Glendronach 15 and I prefer this. Not the most complex, but relatively light, sweet and easy to drink makes it a great drinker.
