  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A really great, intense whisky that of course lives from the very active sherry barrel. The overall package is absolutely harmonious from the first smell to the end of the long finish. For this it is worth being a whisky drinker.

      Intense sherry influences with dark fruits (plum, cherry), Christmas spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), surprisingly also briefly citrus fruit. Chocolate, oak and shoe polish appear. Vanilla can also still be recognized.
    • Taste
      92 92
      A sweet start with strong cinnamon, clove and other spices. Dark fruits appear. The alcohol is strong and warming.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long finish that creamy covers the mouth. There are cinnamon, leather, oak and dark fruits. Bitterness and shoe polish show.

    Very well! This is a completely different whisky from what is produced today.

  4. OJK scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful tropical fruit coming through and lifting the heavy Glenfarclas sherry, giving it such engaging personality amongst classic old school sherried drams. The palate feels delicate and unctuous at the same time, and the tropical fruits and herbal honeys on the finish keep building and surprising you beyond the composition on the palate. A truly memorable and distinguished dram.

    This old ripeness, this lasting fruitiness and liveliness. Not a trace of tiredness. Fully. What more do you want from a dram?

    Color: There are few signs of the Munmun system for the aging years.Nose: Elegant Rancio.It is not too sweet chocolate.An attack: It is unexpectedly smooth.It seems like a long-mature Glenfarclas, I do not have a full feeling. Rather it is not persistent. Gorgeous cacao shower. Body: No strange metabolic feeling. It's soft but plentiful middleweight. Taste: No disgusting soy sauce Gish. Rather, the sweet soy sauce taste like West Japan people. I instinctively want to eat squid sashimi. Bitter and butter are bringing the chestnut bun, exquisite Japanese and Western cuisine. Unlike Dorodoruphei me Glenfarclas, elegant pumpkin pie is outstanding with Sherry. Alcohol feel and wheat feeling are the best over time. Estherly is also rather comfortable. Finish: Woody The best eclair, accompanied by a faint silky, scattering, cacao giggy finish not cow. Glenfarclas like this is long-ripe welcome. Well, even if this is a different distillery, this kind of ○ ○: If you are a distillery it would be a big welcome even if you are long and ripe. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyhars8xhhwmk

  9. Feusi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A very special Glenfarclas 1958, bottled by Signatory at forty years old in 1998 as the jewel in the crown for their tenth anniversary celebrations. Less than 500 decanters were produced from a single sherry butt. TWE
