Glenfarclas seems closer to the mark. Or Glenrothes?
The longer you sip this, the more dry and herbal it gets, so perhaps it's really the latter.
Varnish / wood polish, apricot, acidic red fruit, honey, herbal lozenges, resiny (European?) oak, licorice, rosemary, woodsmoke. It has that typical re-re-re-refill vibe of many modern, pale Glenfarclasses. Pleasant, but pretty pedestrian.
Thick, full, voluminous, with a dense, chewy texture and a resiny, oily impression. Chock-full of honey, mead, and fudge, with a dry herbal edge (rooibos tea) and perhaps an infusion of orange wine. The wood is palpable, but not overdone, with a subdued sherry influence and a focus on softly tart and tannic refill character.
Plenty of oak spice with a dry, herbal, tobacco-like impression and perhaps a tiny idea of woodsmoke in the aftertaste. Still this clingy, oily texture. Taste-wise, it's dry and old-fashioned in the best sense of the word. Pretty long, but I'm missing some fruitiness at this stage; it's almost exclusively herbs and oak now.
