Dünn, Fruchtigkeit wie verdünnt, gammelig - fast schon ein gähriges Prickeln auf der Zunge - wie fauliges Obst. Bitternoten. fast nicht trinkbar

Glenfarclas has been independently-owned and operated by the Grant family since the day they hung the "Open for Business" sign in 1865. This Speyside distillery produces their aged whiskies by marrying sherry-cask single malts with oak-cask single malts at an approximate ratio of 2:1.

Nose

Dried cherries and cranberries with citrus peels, musty raisins, spirity white fruits and nutmeg, rose water and fresh fuji apple slices, a touch of sulfur and oak, earthy brown sugar, cinnamon and coriander with dried figs and dates, green apples, powdered ginger, and something earthy (pipe tabacco) and candied orange peel.

Taste

Spiced stewed fruit compote and oak char, orange peels, ginger with a bit of brown sugar, mixed baking spices, dried figs and raisins, oak tannins mixed with sherry tannins and some bitter chocolate.

Finish

A touch of cherry cough syrup, licorice pastels, orange blossom water, and some bitter ginseng wolfberry tea.

Comments

Closed up without water, but adding water was finicky. I added 0.5 to 1.0 tsp. to ~30ml. With water, the nose becomes more fruit and earthy-citrus, and the taste shows less oak but more bitter spice. This bottle seemed to be in a bad mood the whole way through it over the course of a month.
