  1. Prof.Schoof did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This Whisky was sold for 2.004 € at Whiskyauction in May 2015

  2. Malt Hans scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and spicy aroma, cherry jam, mint, vanilla, passion fruit, cloves, ripe orange, banana, red apples, cinnamon, honey, mango and pear. Marzipan sweet and spicy taste, mint, pepper, eucalyptus, liqourice, vanilla, pear, ripe banana, almonds, orange marmalade and walnuts. Very long, sweet, spicy and malty end.

  3. Eclectic Scotchist scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is simply stunning - it literally took my breath away. The nose is fantastic and complex, and very fresh and vibrant considering its age. On the palate it is like nothing else I have ever tasted: extremely complex with a thick oily texture (almost sticks to one's teeth) - I find something new in every sip with this one. The finish is big and elegant and beautifully subtle at the same time - not a 'shortish finish' (as mentioned in the official tasting notes) in my book at all. First the finish explodes dramtically and then dies down slowly to a subtle lingering with no bitter or unpleasant notes present at the very end. Subtle in the end, yes, but not a short experience overall. I will post a full review at a later date if everything goes as planned.

    A finer dram than this will be hard to find in my opinion (which my rate reflects).

  4. Alex scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    With 58 years of age, it`s the oldest Glenfarclas Family Casks bottling to date. The high ABV of 49.6% is amazing after so many years in the wood, however typically for Glenfarclas.
