    whiskyfun:

    Glenfarclas 1968/2009 (51.2%, OB for Lindores Whisky Society 5th anniversary, cask #699, 11 bottles)  One would expect Mr Timmermans, a patented Glenfarclas collector, would select a good cask for his club. Colour: deep gold. Nose: right, this is exceptional indeed. It’s got everything that the 1967 had plus an extremely luscious yet complex fruitiness that reminds me of the first 1965 Family Cask. Probably more various fruits than a costermonger would know and also some wonderful whiffs of beehive (minus the stings) and a little vanilla fudge. Perfect balance. With water: gets fantastically dry and elegant, very stylish, with whiffs of precious wood (wouldn’t a new Rolls-Royce smell like this?), steak and various herbs. Water truly brings another dimension. Mouth (neat): extremely big, dense and assertive, tasting higher than +/-50%, starting very liquoricy and with notes of Mandarine Impériale and maybe a little raspberry eau-de-vie. Very concentrated and without one single sign of overaging, it’s almost a little rough when unreduced! Hints of grape skins. With water: less development than on the nose but that’s not uncommon at all. More prunes, raspberry jam and soft spices. The oak comes through a bit. Finish: very long, even more on orange liqueur and pepper. Faint peatiness. Comments: big, big whisky. As they say, ‘I want to marry this whisky’. And one would almost wish to acquire the Belgian nationality! SGP:662 - 93 points
