    Fine Notes of the Gliese II:
    Thanks to Thomas Schneider for the sample

    Nose: extreme fruit, atypical for Glenfarclas, the Madeira Pass makes for a surprising impact in otherwise typical character, sweet, lighter, lighter fruits, fruit tea with sugar, almonds, cotton candy, later with a lot of rest in the glass biting
    Mouth: immediately before swallowing extremely sweet, slightly tingling through the 58.3%, but not (too) spicy, very sweet fruits, sugared berries, dark caramel, again cotton candy, then lead nuts and dark chocolate over into the very spicy finish Even sweeter with water, maybe the sweetest mouthfeel I've ever had
    Appearance: without water long and spicy, with increasing, first tender, later medium bitterness, the sweetness is superimposed - with some water another picture, here again the sweetness with bitterness only gains in the background, only lasts a little less long
    Conclusion: great product, without question, the sweetness you have to like, I find it exciting. Not infinitely complex, but pleasant and exciting, suitable for grip and thinner, try!

    Not wrong, a not very typical Glenfarclas bottling. I liked the first Gliese even better. Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/02/26/glenfarclas-eine-vertikale/
