  1. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by SCOMA : 

    Aroma: Roasted coffee beans, which were dried in a sherry cask Glenfarclas.

    Taste: Very bitter, would fit well to a double espresso.

    Finish: Big finish, but which rapidly decays. 

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting notes by the producer (George S. Grant):

     

    A beautiful old oak cask in colour.

    Roasted coffee beans that have been dried in a Glenfarclas sherry hogshead.

    Very bitter would go well with a double espresso coffee. 98% cocoa bean chocolate.

    A big finish but quickly peters out, leaving you wanting more.
    Bottled 2010.
