  1. herby.usa scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Result of a blind tasting.
    I wouldn't necessarily have thought of a Genfarclas (although they are known for their sherry maturations)
    • Nose
      89 89
      The gentleman takes time.
      First the alcohol stings in the nose, followed by red fruits - and somehow furniture polish.
      Acid notes of unripe fruit soon follow.
      Little by little, more aromas are added like
      Coffee, sultanas, leather, maple syrup, cinnamon, peppermint.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Heavy, peppery start (also due to the barrel strength) - chilli heat / ginger.
      Then it becomes very sweet and creamy.
      Coffee, vanilla, cocoa and sherry flavors.
      Is there a slight note of salt here? I'm not sure!!
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium length with wood spice (tannins) and sherry finish (coffee, cocoa, vanilla)

    • Nose
      92 92
      Coffee, sultanas, vinous sour fruits, leather,
      red fruits, pancake, maple syrup, cinnamon, peppermint
      and also a very slightly musty note.
      A light cheese note is added with water.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong, peppery, sweet, creamy, coffee. Alcohol is palpable.
      More peppery again with water.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Wood flavor, salty, bittersweet.

    Cask 2935, 628 bottles, Sherry butt. Buttery spices, sweet Sherry and vanilla on
    the nose. Drying with exposure to air. The palate is big and rich, boasting
    spicy Sherry, stewed fruits and a herbal note. The finish is long and Sherried,
    fading to caramel. The youngest expression in the Family Cask line up, and a
    lovely example. This stands up very well in the company of so many of its
    elders!
