  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Gentle and solid, in addition fruity and sweet with a pleasant sharpness and fine dry fruit notes. This Glenfarclas convinces me with its intense and varied character. Tastes and likes!

    • Nose
      A mixture between dark caramel and light amber rests in the glass, on the glass wall of my premium snifter there is a thick streak from which a multitude of oily "legs" are released. A hint of dried grapes and berries mixes with oranges and tangerines, hints of caramelized sugar and fresh mint follow, baked apple and sweet toffee come into their own intensely, the nose clearly gains fruit and sweetness. Apricots and peaches, milk chocolate and toffee, with fresh mint and a hint of peppermint. Hints of sweet tobacco dissolve timidly, velvety vineyard peach dominates the nose with sweet raisins and juicy tangerines.
    • Taste
      The first sip flows sweetly and fruity through the palate, spicy wood tones appear mild, creamy toffee and liquid caramel melt together, minimally tickling subtle peppery sharpness on the tongue. There are hints of dried berries, chocolate drips on spicy wooden elements, peaches and apricots end in mandarins and a few splashes of grapefruit juice. Subtly burns on the tongue, the saliva is stimulated, hazelnuts fall into creamy milk chocolate, toffee melts on the tongue.
    • Finish
      Toffee and chocolate rest mildly and gently on the palate, pleasant sharpness still tickles on the tongue, mint dissolves on the sweet fruit note, again slightly sour grapefruits come into play. Cedarwood and minimal hints of tobacco flatter the palate, creamy hazelnuts are remembered for a long time.

    tastes better than it smells, the finish is intense and very special, oiled tropical wood, chocolate and slightly sulphurous sherry of the 60/70 - tasty, unfortunately diluted
