    I can be brief here. This malt is completely ok and sure has its lovers, but it didn't convince me. Because, 21 picked me up immediately and forever.
    • Nose
      Apples with honey and spicy wood. The sherry is also clearly ahead. Fruity.
    • Taste
      Christmas and cake with lots of sherry and sweet. The spice from the barrel unfortunately ends a bit bitterly sulfur-heavy.
    • Finish
      Medium to long but impure finish. Dry and spicy with a tendency to bitter sulphurousness. Is there smoke?
      Gone again.

    Thin, fruitiness as diluted, gammelig - almost a chewy prickling on the tongue - like foul fruit. Bitter notes. almost not drinkable

  9. The_Osprey scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Glenfarclas 15, 46% Aroma is sherry wood, slightly floral - a touch muted. Wood-led rather than actual sherry, which is good. Nice but muted. Taste is led by dates and figs, light woody notes, but not tannic at all. Faint cocoa. Touch of menthol. Some floral and herbal notes come up after that punchy menthol. Just lots of nice but restrained sherry. Balance is pretty much perfect. Flavour profile isn't necessarily ideal but the balance of flavours is. Very nice dram. 3.65/87
