    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!

    The Madeira barrel ripening has delivered a distinctly independent result: this is not a typical Glenfarclas. Very interesting, but a sample is enough for me.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Initially a bit closed. Sweet and spicy over time. Wine, grape must, roasted almonds and honey, adhesive note. In particular, the fruity aromas are set on top. The alcohol remains present and a bit spicy.

      With some water even sweeter and a little more supple. Now comes the sweet pastry of Glenfarclas, but still fruity and vinous, plum compote, subtle vanilla, and quite spicy.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, then very strong onset, tingling almost spicy, then surprisingly watery, sweet pastries, some bitter coffee, walnut, nice and spicy.

      With water: sweet, spicy, still very strong onset but less spicy, getting dry, intense, dark cocoa, creamy dark chocolate, nuts
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long, spicy, nice dark chocolate, coffee powder, nuts.

      With water remains a very delicious, long-lasting chocolate taste in the mouth, sweet fruit compote, then very spicy and slightly bitter - from chocolate is baking cocoa, I like it very much.
