  1. DramALife scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    S 7
    The typical sweet & citrus notes from Madeira cask are amplified here and have created an interesting Glenfarclas that taste nothing like their ordinary releases from sherry casks. It’s more volatile while having less depth, what an intriguing experiment.

    81-85 - Another dram welcomed
    • Nose
      83 83
      Sourish beer wash. Cookie dough. Nose drying. Fresh, green grapes. After a couple of minutes, the sourish notes are washed away by the sweeter malty note. Now a bit funky/dirty. A whiff of creamy tablets at the back. Rose hand cream.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Mouth-warningly sweet with plenty of berries. Tropical fruits? Grilled pineapple/mango. Cooked malt. Slightly peppery spices. Toasted oak, slightly dry. Mixed nuts.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Mid finish. Mildly citrusy and waxy. A touch of honey. Dry oak.

    On first nose, rubber and sour grapes. Burning plastic. Sour cherry and fermented blueberries. Not a great start. Palate is much better. Still quite sour, but the rubber and plastic is toned down. Quite oaky as well. Sour strawberry and toasted almond, with some more rubber. Not for me, unfortunately. 78 and first, though the rubber did lessen over time. I’ll leave this at 80/100.
