    Again and again, as with this bottling, I discover smoky elements in Glenfarclas bottling. You won't find lush and fruity sherry flavors in this piglet, here the rather reserved and delicate sherry notes with wooden and earthy notes dominate.

    • Nose
      Creamy amber shines from the premium snifter while raisins and hazelnuts lumber out of the glass. In spite of "only" 46%, the alcohol is sometimes sprightly on the nose, little by little hazelnuts with minimal grapefruit notes come into play. After a while, mandarins and apricots dissolve from the initially rather woody and nutty aroma, occasionally flashing apricots and hints of peaches. A hint of milk chocolate and toffee whet your appetite for the first sip ...
    • Taste
      The Glenfarclas flows through the mouth mildly and characterized by tart wood tones. At the same time, wooden sharpness with a pinch of white pepper unfolds powerfully on the palate and voluminously warms the entire mouth. Hazelnuts and slightly earthy notes end slightly smoky, leaves and creamy wood elements appear minimal. The second sip also looks mild at first, but then immediately unfolds its partly bitter and subtly smoky aroma paired with a pleasant wooden sharpness. With wet leaves, the taste lingers.
    • Finish
      Subtle sharpness tickles between tongue and palate, spicy and tart wood tones flood the palate, slightly earthy again wet leaves and dark hazelnuts come into their own. The aftertaste slowly fades away with hints of grapefruit.

    Great malt from Glenfarclas, who likes sherry keg is exactly right here. As always a very good PLV.
    • Nose
      Clear sherry influence, sweet and quite dry. Strong spice, fruity. Very harmonious.
    • Taste
      Strong, sweetish spiciness. Fruit combines with some chocolate. Alcohol very well integrated, balanced. Oak wort from the barrel.
    • Finish
      Very long and intense, very spicy. Too pretty dry.
