Tasted on 11/12/2011
Big rich fruit on the nose. Creme brûlée, grape jam, fruit punch, vanilla and supple Sherry
Rich sherried oak, spicy cinnamon spiked egg nog, chocolate covered strawberries and cinnamon coated almonds. The spirit has nice legs on the glass and has an oiliness that superbly coats the palate.
Moderate to long finish where the cinnamon spice clings to the back of the palate. There might even be just a faint taste of burnt chocolate on the end. A wonderful old whisky from Glenfarclas that I feel grateful to have sampled!
