Whisky reviews for Glenfarclas 1993

9 users have left 9 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.45 points.

  1. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Stronger and less sweet than I would have expected for an Oloroso whisky. But a delicious and sweet Dram. Exactly my booty scheme.
    • Nose
      Mouthwatering. Dark sherry fruits, caramel, forest soil, damp wood. Some after-eight with orange and vanilla in the background.
    • Taste
      Soft and full. A lot of orange and dark sherry, just behind it strong oak from the Oloroso barrel, a trace of tobacco and leather.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasant. Orange, dark chocolate, coffee. Something dry.

    [October, 2012]  I had this dram during a community tasting near Bonn.  I bought bottle no. 2996 for 46 Euro in October, 2012.In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no detailed notes as I knew it before.

    • Nose
      full, sweet sherry, light dark fruit without dryness, caramel, some oak, very voluminous
    • Taste
      Sherry, light oak without bitterness, strong onset with noticeable alcohol, sweetness, but less tasty than in the smell
    • Finish
      very long and warm, clear oak and this time also bitterness, bitter orange jam

  8. m884 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose: sherry - medium dry, relatively fruity, figs, a bit forrest honey, relatively `fresh` for 18 years

    Mouth: a bit weak, dry, touch grassy, a bit sherry

    Finish: tanins, sherry, dry - later oloroso with red berries, a bit malty

    Comments: I had pertty high expectations for this one but it fell rather flat. This one comes in three different batches I think, unfortunately I don`t know the batch of this one.
