    Style: Fruity, Sherry and Refined

    Nose:

    Rich plums and blackberries waltzing in gracefully, a light creamy and peppermint touch to lift the aroma. Rich, but gentle. Raw almonds and mango sorbet slipping under, a handful of dried raspberries and cranberries scattered around casually. A more steady malt biscuit notes emerge. Quite nice.

    Palate:

    Quite similar to what the nose has suggested. Another boost from blueberries and plums. Mango Pavlova gently drizzled with crème de menthe. Almonds, malt biscuits building up to a more steady core in the middle. A hint of cranberry croissants highlighted with a subtle sherry-floral overtone. Lemon marzipan lingers, while polish oak, tannins and cigar box notes kick in at the back.

    Finish:

    A sherry finishing touch on a comfortable almond cookie and malt.

    Thoughts:

    A thoughtful Glenfarclas teasing the line of richness and lightness. Sherry-laden no doubt, but there is an airiness in the spirit which deftly levitates the expression with its fruity and floral strokes. I love it. A refined and poetic selection.
