Whisky reviews for Glenfarclas 2011 SMWS 1.252

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 89.25 points.

  1. Bitzi scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A fruit bomb on the nose, well integrated alcohol. In the mouth, the fruitiness is confirmed, but due to the age it imposes itself with an unexpected complexity. Medium to long finish. The cask strength is easily noticeable, but not disturbing. An absolute must-have at this price!

  2. whiskynews did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    SMWS Notes:

    We were greeted by the gentle hint of wood smoke as we prepared a morel sauce with yellow wine (sauce au vin jaune et morilles) which so perfectly accompanies venison. On the palate oat and black pepper biscuits, soft and zingy lemon cookies as well as a moist spice cake with a vanilla buttercream frosting.

    After the addition of water, the scent of sweet hay, soft cream crackers, butter croissants and fresh cut slices of pears appeared. To taste still a ginger chilli heat with a limey zingy tang but now beautifully balanced with a delightfully spiced summer fruit cordial or an orangeade.

    EU Outturn price: 79,40 EUR
