  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A tasteful old school whisky. Wonderfully complex and multi-layered, wonderfully harmoniously balanced. Tastes and I like it very much!

    22/23/24/24 (93P)
    • Nose
      Dark amber shines in the glass, dried fruits and toasty aromas are already noticeable from a distance, while oily and syrupy "legs" stick to the glass wall of my Premium Snifter. Caramelised sugar and dark oranges stand out with a fresh minty note from the glass, hazelnuts and fine oak blend together, dark caramel and forest honey come into their own. Sour cherries and blackberries show discreetly, a hint of citrus fruits mix with increasingly fruity apricots and grapes. The complex nose slowly unfolds its manifold flavors and becomes more interesting by the minute. Minimal comes leather and a hint of dried tobacco to light, milk chocolate melts in the nose ...
    • Taste
      Tart fruit flavors mingle with spicy oak at the first sip, milk chocolate and caramel melt together before subtle pungency on the palate becomes noticeable. Slowly a pinch of pepper falls from the palate to the tongue, chocolate and cocoa powder flows over oak planks, grapefruit and other citrus fruits dissolve out of the wooden aroma, hazelnuts and chocolate stick to the tongue. Sour cherries and currants swim in saliva before a discreetly dry and wooden mouthfeel occurs. Heat rises and dresses the palate, slowly blurring taste and aftertaste.
    • Finish
      In the aftermath, the relatively high alcohol content makes a powerful impact and does not dissipate the heat sticking in the palate. Again citrus fruits and raisins come to the fore, spicy wood tones and chocolate play together, hazelnuts are distributed in the mouth. Long stay the delicious flavors in combination with a plump warmth on the palate and never seem to want to end.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2007]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 149 that I bought for 128,50 Euro in June, 2007.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5.  My notes state it reminds me a little of Christmas time aromas.  A flawless edition that is not drowned in sherry flavours only but shows the Glenfarclas spirit characteristics too...

  3. wheatfield scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Thanks again to Jacek. Pours ruby/auburn. Nose is of course big sherry. Not as much beef stock / mushroom as the Miltonduff 1966, a bit more on the cooked red fruits, Christmas cakes, rums. Mouth is a strong, well rounded attack with a good melange of the sweeter and more savory flavors. Definitely strawberry preserves, rum cake, light savory stock and mushroom. Very nice.

  6. Lafroy scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very deep and strong sweetness mixed with sour cherries and grapes. Hints of burning wood, varnish, glue, old oak, as well as leather. Additionally, strong notes of acetone and rubber.
    • Taste
      It starts very sweet and creamy, dry and sour. In just w few seconds it turns hot, herbal, spicy with notes of leather, chili, cherries in spirit and dried fruits. Hints of pepper, dark chocolate, burned oak, roasted green apples, varnish, dryness, hot spices. It´s very warming.
    • Finish
      Very long, semidry with hints of sweetness, varnish and pepper.
