    [December, 2018] What is the difference between "A Speyside Distillery" (like most undisclosed Whisky-Doris releases are labeled) and this "Single Speyside Malt" - I guess there is no...

    ...and I guess this is another "naked" Glenfarclas, too. It owns a pretty nose but slept several years too long in oak so both taste and finish are unbalanced with too much bitter-spicy wooden notes. Nevertheless, this is an easy to drink Traditional Scotch (with a minor fault)...
    • Nose
      90 90
      The colour is pale gold and the nose offers the typical fruity-honey-malty-spicy profile Glenfarclas is famous for. This is absolutely flawless and beautiful balanced, I like that - a "naked" (meaning not sherried) 'farclas that shows the great malt aromas of this fine distillery without disguise.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is much more spicy than the nose with some bitter-herbal flavours beside the usual fruits, honeys and barley sugars. It is somewhat layered and nicely chewable but the spices and bitter-herbs drive the taste out of balance, unfortunately. Nonetheless - this is an impressive taste and if you like such spicy-bitter wooden notes you will like this dram very much, most probably.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with a minor bitter-peppery moment from the woods (tannins at work). The finish is long and gets a little sweeter on sugars and honeys before it dries out on bitter-astringent feelings towards the end. Too bad, this whisky certainly spent several years too long in its cask. Water releases additional fine aromas in the nose and turns both taste and finish more balanced through reducing the amount of spicy-bitter notes. I like this dram best when reduced to about 43% abv.
