Reviewed by Serge on whiskyfun.com (16/7/2008):

Feral Clangs 41 yo 1966/2008 (45.7%, The Nectar, Daily Dram, 201 bottles) A tribute to the Velocette Thruxton, probably the most wonderful motorbike ever built by man. Colour: gold. Nose: starts rather nervously, with ‘direct’ whiffs of freshly sawn oak, mint and beeswax/honey. Walnut wood, cellulose. Goes on with notes of plantain, both white and milk chocolates, a little leather polish and finally hints of lemon balm, eucalyptus, butterscotch and plain vanilla. Pretty youthful at more than 40 years of age. Excellent oakiness and good freshness at the same time. Mouth: more fruits upfront, coated with tannins and white pepper. Cooked peaches and pears. Still quite malty after 41 years, with also notes of unsugared coffee, nutmeg, soft paprika… Gets drier and more gingery after a while, as well as more vanilled. Hints of mustard. Finish: long, rather soft. Comments: a version of that distillery that’s rather different, that is to say maybe a tad more austere than usual. Also a good example of a rather big oakiness that’s still very, very pleasant. SGP:371 – 90 points.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Intensive with lots of vanilla, honey and beeswax. Ripe mirabelles and fudge. Lovely.

Taste

Wow, this is really beautiful! Bold, clean and rich. Mainly on fruits, honey and caramel - honey candied mirabelles. Nice oakiness in the background, white pepper as well.

Finish

Long with white pepper and a beautiful mellow oakiness.

Comments

Untypical Glenfarclas but tasting it is a great experience. Perfect example how good whisky from this distillery can be when it is matured in an excellent bourbon cask.
