    Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky MagazineNose
    Big

    and concentrated with masses of rose hip syrup cut with fresh varnish.

    There`s hints of camphor and incense along with plenty of dried

    fruits/Xmas pudding and prune.

    Palate
    Yes, there are big tannins on show but there`s a

    balancing rich soft sweetness. Masses of liquorice and plenty of bruised

    black fruits.

    Finish
    Long, slightly bitter and powerful.

    Comments
    For sherry fiends certainly but it`s certainly got balance.

    9/10

    Producer`s Notes

    Rich copper - like the colour that has developed on a Glenfarclas still, which has been in use for at least 3 years.
    Cola Cubes, sweet and dry on the nose, an interesting combination. Light tannins, more from Burgundy wine than a big Bordeaux. Almost like a polished segment of sandalwood, a very fragrant whisky. Smooth and very palatable, leaves you wanting more. Not as dry on the palate as it is on the nose.

    Long, delicate, lightly leathery, a very typical Glenfarclas.
