  1. VWWW scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Tasted side by side with a Tamdhu 25y old from the same era, hard to say which one was better, won't say this is a hugh sherry-bomb, but it's defenitely in there!

  3. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Sampled this in a line up of Glenfarclas 13 (SMWS bourbon cask), 10, 12, 21, 25, 40, and the 105. I found this mildly less exciting than the 21, due in part to the mint-cherry note that reminded me of candies. 
    • Nose
      Refined nose. Grape and oak, sweetness, and slight mint. 
    • Taste
      Sweet mint-cherry and light tannins. 
    • Finish
      Long finish with mint and grape notes.
