Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 15-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. marmeladow scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    With 46% and fresh in the glass, there are a bit of musty, spicy alcohol and sulfur notes. These disappear with a reduction to 44-45%, especially if you give this complex stuff a lot of time to breathe and open (30-40 minutes!).
    Many constantly changing impressions. Every dram changes impressively. Very complex!
    Overall, a recommendable treat for which you have to take a lot of time

      subtle sweetness, reminiscent of rum pot.

      Oak Fruit Spices Sherry Nut Sweet Caramel Cake Herb
      powerful, full mouthfeel, warming, velvety-oily. Complex and later also velvety-round, then becoming drier with a slight bitterness, well integrated into the sweetness and the sherry notes

      good medium length, maturity and age are easy to understand.
