  2. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    A lot of sweet stuff. Think about caramel, fudge, a hint of sherry and some coffee. There is also a kind of earthy note in here.

    Taste:
    Baboooom! there is the sherry butts kicking in!
    Full sherry influence. Very nicely made! Well it's everything you will expect from a good Glenfarclas. It has red fruit, raisins, some burned sugar and some fudge in there

    Body:
    Full

    Finish:
    Long. The sherry influence is clear here. Finish is quite simular to the taste and fades away with a touch of wood.

    Price:
    Don't know this was a sample

  8. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A real and true sherrymonster. 
    • Nose
      A lot of sherry tones, dry fruit, raisins, orange, brown sugar, choco tones. But also spicy.
    • Taste
      Spicy again, rich of flavors, dry fruit like dates, plum,dried apricot, with a nice and warm,malty  sweetness.Tones of: coffee, nuts, choco and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Very long and warm finish, the nose and taste come together.

  9. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A true sherrymonster in Glendronach-kind-of-style. I am so happy that I bought a bottle of this.

    (Rating interval 86-90) 
    • Nose
      Spicy sherry, cocoa, dried fruits, like dates,
      raisin, figs, brown sugar, Christmas cake. 
    • Taste
      very spicy with an real alcohol nip neat, but
      despite the bright appearance the dram is full of flavors like dates, dried
      apricots and sour plum. This is transitioning to a malty sweetness and a fairly
      long finish... 
    • Finish
      ...with coffee, roasted nuts, chocolate, cinnamon and a hint of chili.

  10. granella2003 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Soft alluring nose, sweet cotton candy, light honey notes prickling with fresh fruit and toffee sauce.
    • Taste
      Big rich sherry taste, more sherry on the taste than on the nose. A real mouth filling whisky, warmth yet no agression. Cloves, toffee apples and light chocolate.
    • Finish
      A very long finish, lots of power yet so much flavour- a dram that keeps you going back again and again
