Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1979 Edition N°9

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Small sample during a private tasting...

    ... which is another old textbook sherry maturation. The nose is a little reserved but opens up on reduction and the mouthfeel and taste are simply great. The finish is long, the wood about perfect (not dominant). Interesting and quaffable.

  2. pere scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    When I tasted this for the first time in 2007 I did not consider it as such a special sherry whisky, but that was compared to the abundance of the 60's and early 70's heavily sherried Speysiders still everywhere. Having tasted it again a couple of times during the last 5 years it has turned out to be a rather decent after all, being still somewhat similar to the "old style" sherry.
    • Nose
      Sweetish, fudge, vanilla, grass, crisp fruits, spices, a bit of raisins, citrus.
    • Taste
      Sweet spices, a hint of wood, fruity.
    • Finish
      Spicy, sweetish, dries rather fast, a bit of oak, a hint of raisins.
