A quick vertical of the Glenfarclas tasting pack. For one of the quintessential sherried brands, the sherry notes in these Glenfarclas are surprisingly well integrated. There are even distinct notes of apple as well as malt flavours that have not been smothered in the sherry fruits. It is only in comparison to the 21 and 25, does it become clear that the 15 has some metallic notes. The 21 has some additional smoothness whereas the 25 has a deeper richness. But the family profile is remarkably consistent. On the palate the youth of the 15 is more apparent, it is more bitter and the fruits are somewhat sharper. The 21 has a gentle smokiness in the background and is clearly rounder, whilst the 25 is more full bodied and mouth coating. The finish is the typical sherry and some wood bitterness. Compared to the 21, the 25 is only marginally better, it does not show its extra years well and is certainly not worth the added premium.
