  6. diamond2000 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: open, not very intense, raisins, burnt berry jam, fresh berries with sourness, cranberries, red currants; dry wood, dusty book, grain motifs, dressed leather.

    Taste: sweet, berry jam, raisins, prunes, red pepper, honey, a bit rustic…

    Finish: continuation of taste, fading red pepper, prunes, dark raisins, no longer sweet dark berry compote, some wood, medium length.

    Score: 87

    Bottom line: a solid barrel-strength Farclas, some kind of failure in taste and, in general, poor for 15 years of aging. I wanted more variety, modern Abun batches (60-70) look at the level, and maybe even more interesting IMHO.
    Probably just expectations were a little too high and was a little disappointed, but overall a decent product.

    Powerful sherry almost-monster)
    • Nose
      90 90
      Intense, non-alcoholic, dried fruits (prunes), good barrel, sherry
    • Taste
      88 88
      It basically repeats the aroma, adds even more sherry, and prunes seem to be inferior to dried apricots, a little pepper.
    • Finish
      86 86
      I would like a longer, but pleasant; dries a little (maybe after 55.3)

    • Taste
      spicy sweetness, ginger, cinnamon, sherry, dried fruits: figs, raisins, the sherry notes are very strong: nuts, dark chocolate, dried fruits, earthy and sweet leather, oily, oak, rounded and deep
    • Finish
      oak, wine hints, dried fruits, nuts, spicy, bitter herbs, warm, smooth and pleasant, long

    Blenders Glass.
    I would like it better, but "sho maєmo" ...
    The nose is best. The taste is sour. Finish with a wet piece of wood.
