  1. Maltimizer scored this whisky 76 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      77 77
      Pear, vanilla sweetness, quite strong alcohol (youth), slightly sour, but very simple
    • Taste
      77 77
      Mild, clear sherry influences with nuts, creamy mouthfeel, but quite thin, not very sweet and slightly bitter
    • Finish
      75 75
      In short, it doesn't really leave anything to be remembered later ....

  2. dongolzo81 scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Nothing disturbing, but incredibly "thin". At first it smells like fruit schnapps, raspberry brandy, slightly alcoholic. The taste is then very, very mild, I would have guessed the liqueur in the direction of 32-34%. Unfortunately, the taste is then too diluted. Departure hardly - if at all - available. It is not mine.

    Nose and taste have honeyed apples and oranges. This whisky lacks depth and becomes too peppery and bitter too soon.

    • Nose
      72 72
      clear alcoholic strength; Fruit belt character; for me, clear pear, slightly sour apple and a light, sweet vanilla note; in the background still a clear citrus note
    • Taste
      75 75
      Pear, apple, minimal oak, but gets a bit stronger; light spice
    • Finish
      72 72
      slightly spicy, short; some fruit, light oak; Some fruit will hang for a moment, but then it is gone

  6. OKoster scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Located along the River Spey, Glenfarclas sees fame as both a top flight Scotch whisky and one of the oldest distilleries. Glenfarclas boasts having six of the largest stills on Speyside, although they are unique in more than just their size, being direct-fired by gas, as opposed to the more common method of steam heating.
