  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 85 points Administrator

    Ah, Glenfarclas! Family-owned distillery, direct-fired stills and this unmistakable, sherry-infused style. Typical sweet fruity Speyside aroma that is full of oranges, apricots and plums with a touch of cinnamon and cloves. A robust nose. The arrival is mouth-watering, measured and zesty. Fresh youthfulness reminds that this Single Malt is only 12 years old, and yet it is full-bodied and rich with dried fruits, raisins and nuts. A medium finish with Christmas spices, dark chocolate and jelly babies in the aftertaste underscores that this whisky is a good choice.

    dryness in the mouth, a bit of bitterness, and malty sweetness!
    spicy, peppery on the palate, a little dust and fruit a little moldy and dusty.

    better and rounder compared to the 8th and 10th vieeel. The sherry is noticeable, it is very mild and very pleasant to drink
