    • Nose
      88 88
      Slightly musty sherry, spicy, nutty, subtle oak aromas, rather subtle fruit notes, subtle sweetness, not particularly complex, but still very pleasant to smell. No malt that reveals its secrets immediately ...
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very pleasant on the palate, oily, nutty, maybe even a little bit bitter. It goes more in the spicy / dry direction. The fruit is there, but it should certainly not be a first fill barrel. I like the mouthfeel. It's typical Glenfarclas refill stuff; so what you expect. The 46% look good on the malt and I would definitely not dilute it.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish is a bit more straightforward again, honey is added to the fruit components and the barrel seasoning. A sociable malt, whose quality cannot be denied and yet is not overwhelmed.
