Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1965
2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.91 points
- Initially the alcohol is quite overpowering. I agree it needs time to open up. As well as the honey and red fruits, there is a strong spearmint and menthol aspect on the palate - very pleasing indeed. There was a lot of wood on the nose initially, but not at all on the palate - nicely balanced. Medium long finish - not the longest, but some smooth, dark chocolate right at the end. Not as complex as the 1960 in my book - fewer layers to discover - but a fab whisky all the same.
- Producer`s notes (from George Grant)A very dark treacle in colour.Light on the nose initially, with some walnuts dipped in chocolate coming through.Similar
to the previous 1965 this needs some time to open up in the glass.
After forty four years in a cask this whisky needs some breathing space,
a drop or two of water has the same effect. Distinct heather honey
notes emanating after a couple of minutes.An incredibly easy drinking whisky.
