    Ingenious malt, also exactly my scheme, personally it would even be a 94, tropic, as a counterpoint exactly the right amount of dryness, salt and acidity, perfect (subtle) amount of wood and malt ...
    • Nose
      In the beginning it was extremely sweet, light tropics, banana split everywhere, litchi, dragon fruit, then great cocoa powder, sugared & roasted almonds, camphor, marzipan, toffee, tick lemongrass, candied ginger, very complex, apricot, almond milk, peanut butter, resin , White chocolate
    • Taste
      Star fruit, papaya, guava, kiwi, lychee, later also mango and pineapple, lemongrass, ginger, tick of green pepper, pistachios, fennel, nice, rather light, subtle malt, very gentle, great oak, eucalyptus, chamomile, green tea, very much aromatic, licorice, wax, tick salt
    • Finish
      Kiwi, lemongrass, ginger, camphor, star fruit, tick white grapefruit, green tea, long

    Color: old gold, copper highlights
    A well integrated alcohol.

    Super nose!
    An impression of white fruit, apple, it makes me think of a "Norman hole".

    Grilled malt, lemon, a good old school distillate.

    Notes of dark chocolate, sugar but just enough not to go overboard.

    Roasted almonds remind me of a fruity speyside. With melon notes on the long and bewitching finish.

  5. Luigisim scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The sherry notes are pleasent but a bit too predominant at nose and palate.
    The finish is never ending with a strong mint aftertaste

    a glenfarclas of 41 years!
    • Nose
      fruity, candied, sweet
      a little melon, milk chocolate
      impregnated wood
      very pastry, creamy, honeyed
      cooked vanilla and leather with some varnish
    • Taste
      the melon, then the cooked quince, then the cooked mandarin
      vanilla pastry cream, sweet spices arrive next, then the sweet honey side, the caramel au lait
      a bit of bitterness suddenly, then the woody and some traces of mold, rather dried lichen.
    • Finish
      a little acidity at the bottom of the glass!
      a grassy side, dried flowers
      milk caramel
      lacquered wood.

    Conclusion: 91/100 points "Fruit-Bomb-Nose-Whisky" The 1966 Glenfarclas Lancer's flag starts promising with an incredibly fruity and pleasing nose. With the tastiest I know - to bite! Unfortunately, the euphoria can not be sustained. In the mouth no trace of fruit salad .. Here is the wooden board on which the fruit was cut. A pity. The finish could be longer. The nose ensures the high rating, here I could smell for hours. Delicious! Link to the tasting with photos on my blog: http://www.tasting-notes.de/Archive/238
    • Nose
      Fruit gum on the nose, Golden Deliciuos apples, ripe honeydew melon, juicy mango with some menthol in the background. A very sweet fruit salad with a few splashes of lime and a spoon of acacia honey. Very tasty and promising.
    • Taste
      Starts with a creamy-kräutrigen, slightly alcoholic mouthfeel. Not mild. Towards the end, tart, woody and a bit musty with toffee and licorice. Hardly any fruit. Some lime peel and a bit of citric acid at the beginning.
    • Finish
      Mid-length finish, starting with a herb-woody mouthfeel. Liquorice, dark chocolate (min 80%) and some honey. There remains a coating in the mouth reminiscent of cold black tea. Towards the end some lychee on the palate.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=189 Color: gold
    Nose: Sweet syrup, honey, fruit gum with lime, honeydew melon, yellow apples, mango and pineapple - fruity-mineral-salty-yummy!
    Taste: Unobtrusively creamy starting, but with a slightly sourish fruit note, which gives way rather quickly to a tart wood-herbal licorice note. Without the thick fruit flavors from the nose but consistently spicy-salty and the finish a bit woodier.
    Finish: Medium to long - with tart wood, licorice and black tea and honey. Towards the end, heavy, dark chocolate notes remain, creamy and in harmony with the tart aromas.
    Comment: Yes, without the slight (fruit) -moistin nose and the slightly acidic start in the taste would have been even more in it.
    92 points (nose: 92 / taste: 91 / finish: 92)
