An atypical Glenfarclas was to be expected. We have it. But again different than expected.
On the palate, I like the malt best. Otherwise, I'm still a little undecided.
Hay, grain, orange peel, Williams-Christ pear, cloudy apple juice, boiled carrot, currant,
Occasionally "Obstler Vibes" (pear), but not as negative as one might understand.
Alcohol involved very well.
I would have expected something different from port barrel maturation, but still not bad.
Strong start, but a little gentler than 55.4%. Creamy-oily and therefore flavor-intensive. Citrus fruits like orange and pomelo, Galia melon, dried apricot, a few spices, raisins, but less sweet, ginger sticks, lemon tea.
Does not need water, has an ideal strength. But with water sweeter, more lemon.
Very slight dryness, then again ginger, pomelo and now something like black currant. Fades in medium length on fruity notes with spices in the background.
