A really incredible Glenfarclas - a forty-year old expression of cask-strength cult favourite 105, bottled late in 2008 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the appearance of the 105 expression. It's astonishing that they managed to maintain the 60% abv over forty years in sherry casks - this will be an epic dram.

    • Comment

      From two casks bottled in 2008 to commemorate the first regular '105' that came out in 1968.

    • Colour

      Amber.

    • Nose

      Oh, I didn’t know this baby was that great! I should have tried it sooner… A complex, rich but very elegant sherriness, blending oranges, sultanas, milk chocolate and the most subtle notes of cinnamon and other spices. It really reminds me of some high-end mulled wine, maybe mulled wine made with some Hermitage Chapelle 1978? (the horror!) Seriously, it’s a fabulous nose so far. High-end chocolate. With water: fa-bu-lous development on many herbs and spices. Sultry but not heavy at all and very complex. Amazing.

    • Mouth (neat)

      Extraordinarily good! Stunning resinous and sappy attack, much more nervous than expected, more citrusy than other old Glenfarclasses. And many herbs and many spices… Only the high power is slightly ‘too much’ for this sissy of a taster so I’m eager to add a few drops of water to this utter beauty. With water: exceptional! Please call the anti-maltoporn brigade! Hundreds of candied fruits and thousands of herbs. And an amazing ‘ vibrancy’.

    • Finish

      Long, big, penetrating. Endless – warning, it’ll kill your tasting session, which is what just happened here at WF Towers.

    • Comments

      Only one regret, not to have tried this one when it came out in 2008. What an utter sherried beauty! Vattings of two or three casks are often more complex than single casks, as we already found out several times with Mr. Samaroli’s old bottlings, for instance. Or when mixing the remnants of a wee tasting session. This 40-105 is another perfect example! SGP:662 - 94 points.
