Whisky reviews for Glenfarclas 1968

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 92.63 points.

  1. Drochaid scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Color: A very dark whisky through which no light passes.
    Aroma: This whisky, powerful in the nose, opens after some air malty, buttery glaze and the smell of a packing material storehouse.
    Taste: An increasingly dry whisky. A whisky from which you definitely need a second drop. A whisky version like blotting paper, takes all the liquid out of the mouth but leaves all the flavor. Complete bottle number: 448

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

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

     

    A very dark whisky that sees no light passing through it.

    The second 1968 to be produced for The Family Casks. The first 1968 was the strongest Glenfarclas bottled to date at 65.1% vol.
    The whisky again although strong on the nose, does after a little air open up offering maltiness, buttery icing and the smell of a dunnage warehouse.

    An increasingly dry whisky. A whisky you definately need a second dram of. A whisky version of blotting paper, takes all the liquid out of your mouth but leaves all the flavour.
    Bottled 2010.
