    TASTED THIS DURING THE SPEYSIDE WHISKY FESTIVAL, FAR TOO MUCH WOOD IN THIS, REALLY POOR AND NOT WORTH THE PRICE TAG.

    Tasting notes by the producer (George S. Grant):

     

    A beautiful, rich caramel colour that looks perfect in your glass. A rich whisky with a powerful sherry nose, followed by floral honey sweetness. Also some peat smoke coming through to give the whisky some burnt-on-the-wood nose.

    Light oaky flavours emerge on this whisky, which has beautiful sherry flavours shining through it. Tastes nothing like you would imagine for such an old whisky. Allow the whisky some time to wake up in your glass and, after a while, some nice earthy tones develop, reminding you where it has been for more than half a century.

    While the flavour is surprising for such an old whisky, the finish is just what you would expect from a great Glenfarclas. Many different flavours present in the glass and in your mouth â€
