Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 15-year-old

166 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.68 points

  1. Misery scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Balanced, even, with the aroma of banana pudding, sherry freshness, dried apricots, grapes, white currants and caramel, sweet-sour taste with tones of red apples, jam from sour berries, wet wood and dried fruit, a finish of pepper and malt with a light bitterness, a touch of chocolate , tree and sherry.
    Very tasty, fresh and sherry. The balance is at a height that develops in the glass evenly and confidently. Nothing is lost from time to time.

    RATING: 87pts - [n22, t21, f22, b22] → | 86-89: Remarkable |

  9. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Gentle raisins, caramel and cocoa. Dry and sweet. Just what you would expect from a sherry cask at this age. But for some reason, I remain a bit underwhelmed.

  10. Igitor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Priced in order. Who wants a sweet fruity Sherrymalt, but should look for another

      83 83
      Leather, wood, bitter, herbs a bit fruit
    • Finish
      83 83
      Bitterness is more and more prevalent, but rather long
