this is how glenfarclas should be, full flavors bursting with fruits and cream followed by beautiful sherry

Finish

short, clean and satisfying, perfectly malted and fruity

Comments

despite a 43% abv, this really impressed me. an old school, fruity and creamy malt accompanied by elegant sherry. it will be my new standard by which all glenfarclases shall be judged, it’s just good.

Version testée :L18 01 16, donc 2016 :
Assez sherry, noisette, moka, cacao amer, toffee, légère amertume herbacée

Taste

Assez mou, mais légèrement crémeux, sur le toffee, la vanille, des fruits secs, assez sucré, un peu de prune cuite, des raisins secs, toujours des notes herbacées

Finish

Moyenne, boisée, vanillée, raisins secs,

Comments

Plutôt équilibré, un peu léger à 43% mais bien fait sans être très complexe

N- Apple tart dusted with cinnamon, homogeneous of mellow sherried matured dram. Aroma faded rather quick. Water drawn out earthy notes, a touch of incense barks and hints of soft peat.

P- Dry and tannic mouthfeel with sour berries. Mellow with sufficient strength to please. Dried fruit notes at the back. Creamy texture if with splash of water.

F- Medium at best, minty, plum and clove. Spicy. With water - smoky chocolate.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Nose

Citrusfruit (citroenschilletje), rozijnen en krenten. Ook melkcocola en butterscotch. Moutig met vanille maar ook sherry.

Taste

Zoet van (tropisch) fruit. Zoethout met een klein, aangenaam bittertje. Een vleugje nootmuskaat. Heel zacht.

Finish

In het begin een beetje bitter maar niet onaangenaam. Daarna zoet. Middellang.

Comments

Een echte Glenfarclas-whisky. Heerlijk als aperitief. Prima whisky om met vrienden te drinken.
