    Bottled to celebrate the Scotch Whisky Auctions 100th Auction. I have copied this direct from their web page.

    We're so proud to celebrate an important landmark in our history, by working with Probably Speyside's Finest Distillery; the legendary Glenfarclas.

  4. sagara-kun scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice but not at all the expected profile. Small disappointment for me.
    • Nose
      Nose very slightly sulfur.
      Leather, dry fruit. Cinnamon. Smoke. Baked apple.
      This is not the profile I expected.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it's sweet. Coiled in sulfur.
      Apple, oily leather, wax, dry wood.
      Simple enough.
    • Finish
      Final on rubber, leather, fat.

  5. Harvey scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Quite disappointing for a 51% 25 yo Glenfarclas. Must be very high portion of refill casks in this one. Herbal, woody and very dry with a short aftertaste...with water you get it a bit sweeter. I hope that this just needs oxidation in the bottle. Mediocre....I was generous with that score of 85.
