Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1981
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.33 points
- Tasted at Glenfarclas distillery (July 20th, 2016)
- Nice dram, and unusual because I think this is a bourbon hogshead.
Citrus fruit, pineapple, looks like a bourbon barrel.
More fruit, melons, it gets more sweet, is it a sherry cask?
A bit bitter, but it is the bitterness you get when you finished a pineapple.
- the cask no. for the 1981 A13-release is #1081 - not #57 (which was release VII)
- producer`s tasting notes:
This is like walking into an old sweet shop.
Although all the sweets are in their jars there is still the sweet smell of hard candy in the air, all wafting into this glass.
This whisky may not have much colour, but it certainly makes up for it in the flavours.
Lovely long finish with touches of smokiness and some citrus on the very end.
- Glenfarclas improved the packaging for all of the A13 releases, now they come with a nice wooden box instead the former golden cardboard box.
- this is "Release A13" (Autumn 2013, 11th release of the Family Casks)
