  1. Jack McClane scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    If you like Glenfarclas from the sherry barrel you will love this one.
    Despite the young age, the alcohol is well integrated.
    The nose sweet caramel, a little something of the stews with roasted almonds - delicious!

    On the palate then unexpectedly gentle - really impressive at the very high ABV.

    And there they are the popcorn notes - that's what I love about the young sherry piglets! A mixture of nuts and warm milk rice with cinnamon and sugar join it .. delicious.

    The finish stays with pleasant sherry notes and lingers for a moment.

    For the money you get here an incredibly great whisky in the glass. For me a real recommendation!

    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity; slightly alcoholic; slight wine-sourness; in the background a light tobacco note
    • Taste
      mild; fruity, then sweet. Then comes nut; and then the barrel shows itself Dark chocolate, sherry; nice spice; then it gets slightly bitter, but the nut stays there. Amazingly strong, gets dry in the mouth
    • Finish
      Oak; spices; Nut; Tobacco; Nutmeg; then sweet, then harsh again;

    According to not to be named sources this is a Glenfarclas
    • Nose
      87 87
      The nose starts of with fresh red fruits and a tiny hint of tobacco. The sherry stands out in this, it's like smelling a real fino sherry. This smell disappears after a couple of minutes in the glass and the spirit (barley sugars) becomes dominant with raisins in the background
    • Taste
      84 84
      The taste is spirit driven, almost flowery. The sherry is almost indiscernible. Quit a large contrast with the nose which i often find in younger sherried cask strength whiskies
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is long, dry, peppery but unfortunately quite one dimensional with a slight bitter barrel note at the end
