Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1970

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.10 points

  1. Alex scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Producer`s tasting notes (by George S. Grant):

    A fantastic dark whisky with a deep red tinge running through it.

    Big powerful nose, rich heavy fruit cake, dripping with heather honey and spiced cloves.

    An incredibly dry whisky at the front of your palate, give this whisky a little time to breathe and it really opens up, would never guess it is above 55%. Almost like nougat flowing over your palate, almonds, sugar and very viscous.

    A little air or water is essential for this whisky to fully realize its potential.

    that`s the new wooden box:

    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.

  4. Alex scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

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