  1. aphex scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful nose, vibrant and tasty palate. Great whisky.
    • Nose
      Elegant nose with fruity, jammy and floral notes. Apricots, honey, nuts, pastry notes and spices.
    • Taste
      Fresh, fruity and punchy but refined too. Apricots, oranges, hints of exotic fruits, spices, leather and mentholated notes. All aromas nicely intertwined.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, tannic, traces of cloves.

     Colour: amber. Nose: ah, this one is much fresher again, not too far from cask #686-687. Beautifully floral and fragrant, markedly winey and also very fruity: perhaps it’s the most balanced of them all. Caramel cream, praline, apricot jam, butter cream… Notes of pastry, fresh cookies, roasted peanuts. The sherry is very refined and elegant… Whiffs of pu-her tea, quinquina, bitter orange, and even ginger. It simply has everything (except peat and smoke, that is). Mouth: oh yes, this one is my favourite, by far. It has much more vivacity than its brothers, and much more oomph. An Aston when the others were Cadillacs! The attack is very nervous, yet creamy, with lots of fruit jam and fruit liquors (mainly mirabelles, plums). Crystallised orange, leather, light tobacco… Even hints of eucalyptus and beeswax. Superb! There is a lot of sherry, obviously, but the latter didn’t overwhelm the whisky at all. Ah, now there are some funny hints of ginger tonic together with a tiny little metallic taste towards the very long and so nicely balanced finish. Wow! This one is meant to get bottled in 2008, but I would advise the owner to check whether it doesn’t get more tannic in the coming months/years, because I find it to be perfect just like it is. Hence my 93 points, by the way… (thanks, Luc!)

    Really too much water (especially in the mouth) to reach 90

    I thought to note 92 initially but once compared to the Caperdonich 1972 Maltbarn, this Glenfarclas appeared even more elegant with a finesse that is missing at Caperdo.
    • Nose
      very sweet, fruity bomb, lots of citrus, a little exotic fruit (in the Tomatin 1976), spices, hazelnut, moderately marked by sherry.
    • Taste
      more expressive than the nose, all finesse and elegance, lots of fruit, orange, apricot jam, mandarin, mango, exotic fruits, spices, menthol. A lot of freshness.
    • Finish
      long, more and more spices.
