  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    a glenfarclas of 41 years!
    (19eu).
    • 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.

    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)
