Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1973

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.78 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Is its inherent quality worth its current value? Probably not. For me, the best sherry casks are not just sherry bombs but have that old-school, old library, leather, tobacco, super-fruity qualities, which this one unfortunately doesn't possess.
    • Nose
      Modern sherry, very heavy, very well done -- raisins, cherry, black grapes, brown sugar, smoke, but also some burnt BBQ meat smell, which I don't find particularly enjoyable. With water, the nose is better and its good aromas more accessible.
    • Taste
      A sherry bomb, through and through, and again, definitely modern. The taste is commonly found in a lot of good sherry bombs which cost 2-3x less. The sherry cask totally overwhelms the distillate.
    • Finish
      Good, predictable
