  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Glenfarclas 10 years, 40% alc. Original bottling around 2017
    Nose: orange jam, slightly spicy, dried fruits and butter cake. In addition, some ripe apples and a touch of peach.
    Palate: Creamy and sweet, again the orange jam, with a little Christmas spices, malt and very subtle wood aromas.
    Finish: Medium length, dried orange, raisins and a little malt.
    Conclusion: a wonderful standard bottling, a nice sherry influence. Balanced between depth and enjoyment. Wonderful. 83/100 points (2021)

    whisky for everyday use, there is not much to think about, everything is clear and young
    • Nose
      80 80
      Sherry, with aromas of ripe red berries arising from this taste, fruity notes of ripe pear, green apple, vanilla, caramel, honey, sweetness.
    • Taste
      77 77
      In general, it repeats the nose, a spice appears, and so I did not feel any new notes, there is not enough fat, I would like to feel a denser body, and so pleasantly sweet, drinkable.
    • Finish
      77 77
      medium aftertaste, but closer to short, leaves a pleasant sweetness and pepperiness, a little sherry influence

    Glenfarclas 10yo 40%. Aroma apricot, ginger, Touch furry, sweet dessert wine like tokaji. Estery spiritous new make and more furry over time. Not what you'd expect from 10yo. Taste is a little underpowered and watery, light spice in the finish. Not enough flavour impact. Furry oak. Basic. Some subtle fruits. Papery linger. Hmm. Has the weight of an ok blended Scotch, but without the flavour. Under-powered. Just barely ok. I'm really surprised and disappointed by how below-average this is (having enjoyed some of the higher age statement official Glenfarclas bottlings). 2.95/71

    Can't quite understand the sometimes so devastating words. Sure, that's nothing extraordinary. It is a 10 year old whisky in the lowest price segment.
    It's a simple malt with 40%, but it doesn't want to be anything else either, light sherry tones can be sensed, a certain malt sweetness, no missing notes, nothing to enjoy, but who simply sips a cheap dram with beginners, acquaintances want, why not ...
