Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1973

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.86 points

  1. Anthaeus scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    An excellent old Sherry Glenfarclas. The sherry influence is really powerful. He seems almost "concentrated". With a little water, it opens clearly and brings out great tobacco notes. A tip drop!

  2. alectron scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Dramfest 2014, single dram note.
    • Nose
      Tannic, warehouse/dunage, rum, tobacco, vulcanized rubber, berries, faint medicinal smoke. (93)
    • Taste
      Tannic, dry, tobacco, cintronat/succade, dried out raisins. (92)
    • Finish
      tannic bitterness setting in, old grand sherry casks. (91)

  3. Alex scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    producer`s tasting notes:

    Antique unpolished gold.

    Rich freshly ground coffee beans, from Nicaraga.

    Amazing light on the palate compared to the nose, rich sweetness for sure but not the big explosion you expect.

    Bitter at the back of your mouth, that then gives way to light creme brulee topping.

    A good balanced dram that is full of surprises.

    Glenfarclas improved the packaging for all of the A13 releases, now they come with a nice wooden box instead the former golden carton.

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