  1. hs305 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    [March, 2019] A quick review of a sample...

    ...just because this is a Glenfarclas does not imply this is good at any age. A typical paedophelic dram, bottled immature and robbed of its (maybe bright) future this way. Why?
    • Nose
      80 80
      The colour is pale gold and the nose offer a rather immature malty profile that is very simple. Beside some barley sugars and bready aromas there are shy spicy wooden notes, not more. Stop.
    • Taste
      79 79
      The taste is sugary sweet and bready-malty. Some spices join in later but this does not really help to make this dram more attractive. Water does not release any new aromas or flavours but it smoothes the taste, somewhat.
    • Finish
      77 77
      The dram arrives hot and just a little coating on the palate with a significant drying-peppery feeling. The finish is short and nothing else. This is rather sugared alcohol than whisky...

  2. Tauti scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Öööhm no, definitely not for me. Has not had a bad malt whisky for a long time. Now it has hit me again. Corny sweet with an artificial apple note. Hard to drink for me. Please do not refill the stuff if it is not ready yet.

    At this point, dare to doubt that this whisky is a Glenfarclas.
    Would it be forbidden to fill a Speyburn as "Iconic Speyside"?
    • Nose
      Malty, artificial sweetness (sweets with apple flavor), grassy, sour, citrus
    • Taste
      Lively, poorly alcoholic, malty, unripe banana, apple (like the green Trojka vodka), pear, oak, some biscuit
    • Finish
      Medium, malt sweet, apple
