Fairly light color, a bit darker than white wine, but atypically bright for a sherry cask.
sweet pleasant smell, some marzipan, dried fruits (prune) vanilla, honey, little alcohol in the nose, for such an age only a rather restrained scent.
unexpectedly intense, sweet, apricot jam, raisins, pastries, long-lasting, interesting and good, almost no bitterness, tolerates a lot of water (diluted to about 46%), Destilleriecharakter tastable (I always describe as something "sticky"), alcohol well integrated , long-lasting.
Conclusion: The whisky was always fun, delicious, no mistakes, worlds better than the GF 1995/2017 Cask Strength 57.3% bottling (I can only rate with 84 P). Although the Glenfarclas 1990 is a really good whisky, I definitely prefer many equally expensive bottlings of the GF Family Casks series, as they usually have much more intensity and only show what the distillery really has to offer.
