    "Nose" (undiluted) Sweet sherry, warm morning berry tarts, roses and peat smoke. Cherry pie just out of the oven. Well done! "Palate" (undiluted) Herbal, mineral like notes introduce some impressive austerity in spite of being at the same time a big sherry malt. The sherry casks that seasoned this spirit were very good quality. Great oak notes too! I am happy. The circle is complete. I can now go gently into that good night! "Finish" (undiluted) A pleasant zing of oak, pencil shavings, red currants and orange rind. Hmmm! I love this finish! The flavors really hang for a long time. And then there is smoke . . . Ohh, the smoke. Good smoke you can enjoy when you part your lips afterwards and inhale through your mouth. I'm serious. Take a sip of this malt, swallow, open and inhale. Wow! Really good smoke mon!

    This is an excellent dram and I love the sherry influence but the finish is a bit oaky and spicy for my taste. It wasn't as sweet as I had expected. In the Glenfarclas line I like the 17 and the 21 year olds. This 17 year old isn't quite up to The Balvenie 17 year old Sherry Oak because I prefer the sweetness of The Balvenie. Again, this is a great Whisky from Glenfarclas.

    Real sherry monster! It is so sweet with hints of vanilla, caramel, even toffee and domination of dried fruits. I love it more than any other Glenfarclas, besides 40 years old one :)
