  1. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Producers tasting notes by George S. Grant (Brand Ambassador):

    Like a stewed tea in colour.

    Smells cask strength, still a lot of power coming through. Rich demerara sugar, toffee and caramel all there.

    Just as big on the taste as on the nose, fresh figs, pear drops and toffee apples.

    A drop of water in this releases a lot of the aromas and flavours that have been trapped in the cask for decades.

    A time honoured dram that hides nothing.
    Bottled 2013.

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Glenfarclas changed the packaging for all of the A13 releases, now they come with a nice wooden box instead the golden carton. Quite an improvement.

  3. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    is part of Release A13 (Autumn 2013, 11th release of the Family Casks)
