Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1959

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    [April, 2008]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 015 that I bought for 333 Euro in November, 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 an unbelievable complex and balanced dram with no signs of over-aging.  This is sherry lover's heaven!  It is quite comparable in its profile to its sister releases but still significantly different.

  2. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur
