  1. Malt Hans scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Spicy and fruity aroma, pepper, prunes, nutmeg, polished leather, oil paint, orange zest and dry hay. Vanilla sweet taste, red apple, pepper, eucalyptus, ripe orange, grapefruit marmalade, liqourice and walnut. Long, spicy, fruity and malty end.

  2. Drochaid scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Color: very dark and like coffee
    Aroma: very fresh drops, malty notes, chocolate melts in a pan. Sherry is a big defining factor.
    Taste: Bitter dark chocolate appears on the palate. Lots of brown sugar, dark chocolate and Christmas cake, fruits, nuts, sherry
    Finish: A grand finale that really lasts forever.

  3. Ralph Hiltrup did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes by George S. GrantVery dark like a certain caffeinated soft drink.

    45 years old, yet a very fresh dram, malty tones, chocolate melting in a pan. Sherry a large defining factor.

    Bitter dark chocolate present on the palate, a truly typical

    Glenfarclas, lots of demerara sugar, bitter dark chocolate, and

    Christmas cake, fruit, nuts, sherry, brandy all present.

    A great finish - That truly lasts forever.
