Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1980

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Honey, varnish and very grassy - straw initially but later more heathery, fruity [apples & burnt orange] and floral. Theres a touch of ‘Nadurra’ about this Speysider which is otherwise more Highland in style.
    T: Dry, minerally [carbon] and grassy again. Not so eventful but a neat delivery nevertheless. Low wood activity for sure
    F: Green wood and clean malt with sugars developing and,…heavy charring,... and,…. oh dear,… its gone horribly wrong. Charring meets, old & congealed oily crisps as bitter sulphur takes hold.
    C: Some lovely moments but the finish is totally screwed.

    Scores a C-

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    producer`s tasting notes:

    Light amber.

    A fruity whisky, with some cinnamon nestling in the centre. Old polished leather also prominent.

    Peppery. Mild bitterness, then into a creamy peppered sauce.

    Vanilla custard to finish.

    Dinner in a glass.
