    Whiskyfun Review:

    Glenfarclas
    1979/2004 Port Pipe (46%, OB, c. #3518,
    750 bottle) George Grant
    (picture above) is a genuine road warrior
    and he happily contributes to many whisky
    festivals all over the world. But Germany
    is a big market for Glenfarclas, so he
    was on a conquered field while in Limburg...
    He let me taste a brand new Glenfarclas,
    and I believe it’s been made for
    Germany. Its nose is very balanced with
    nice sherried notes, some coffee, rhubarb
    (yes, strange mixture) and white melon.
    Hints of toasted bread. The palate is
    very fruity (fruit salad) and quite enjoyable,
    but it lacks a little structure altogether,
    and leaves kind of a feeling of ‘weakness’.
    It's very good, but I'm sure there are
    many better Glenfarclas around. 80
    points. By the way, there was
    an incredible exhibition with more than
    250 different bottles of Glenfarclas.
    George himslef couldn't believe his eyes
    (see picture below...)
