Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 2000

- [September, 2018] I reject to taste this whisky because it comes straight out of hell - tons of sulphur as if you chew the ignition area of a matchbox. Why the hell do they bottle such stuff without any warning on the label??? Shame on you!
Dirty. Fresh matches, burned firecrackers. Spirited raisins, copper coins, railway tracks. Behind it a touch of cherry candy.
Sweetish, slightly biting. Gunpowder, some brass. Red pepper. Some honey and lemon juice on burnt pancakes.

Sweet, dry, plum and roasted peanuts, popcorn (22.5)
Dry finish, leather, tobacco and herbal bitterness ... varnish and wood ... menthol candy ... (22)
- First impression, first drink (12.02.2021)
It's a serious, old-fashioned whisky. I don't smell of predominantly unpleasant sulfur as other tasters have noted.
A little different from the usual Glenfarclas style.
Lots of nuts. Root vegetables like celery. Sulfur, yes, but not annoying.
Really very interesting and very enjoyable.
To discover without fear !!!!! (in my opinion)
- It really shows a noticeable note of sulfur (especially in the nose). Not as bad as others perceive it here, but I would still classify it as a bad grade. Too bad, because apart from that it shows very nice aromas and a great intense character. At the price with a view of the sulfur, however, no large bottle for me.
yes it has a noticeable sulfur note; burned matches; sweet and fruity; ripe fruits; Raisins; delicate oak, a pity behind the sulfur missing note it shows quite nice aromas
sweet; Honey; ripe fruits; some citrus; peppery-spicy; Oak; the sulfur notes come through a little again
peppery-spicy; fruity-sweet; Oak; again some sulfur notes
- What was that, Glenfarclas? A worn out sherry barrel? Adhesive aromas in the aroma, maggi broth in the taste. The alcoholic pungency is there too. It becomes bearable only after the addition of water. But remains weak. So far the biggest disappointment of the year for me! Thank god just a sample.
- unexpectedly meat broth in the aroma, which remains with the addition of water. rather atypical, but liked it
Add a drop of water and you will discover the secret of this nectar.
Nose: wine, dried fruits, raisins ...
Taste: salt !!! Lots of salt! Polish, varnish, leather ...
Aftertaste: long, with a full palette of taste
