Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1983

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.25 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    If one stands on particularly round, balanced but high quality whiskys, please! Neither the total sherry bomb, nor too blatant, but I like that better than some untrinkable dark brown part. ;)
    • Nose
      Full leathery sherry, dark caramel, leather with polish, a little dusty chest of drawers, a hint of tobacco in the background, some prunes, some dried, candied dried apricots, brown sugar, some maple syrup
    • Taste
      Very silky and fine, yellow plums dried, caramelized apricots, brown sugar, honey everywhere, cotton candy, but also a few berry pods, some spicy oak in between, toffee, leather, has something cognac-like, everything is very consistent and almost too silky and gently
    • Finish
      Leather, slightly dry oak and honey remain in the mouth, with light apricot and orange peel notes, medium length
