Fruity, somewhat flat, caramel, honey, sweet, apricot. Later, a bit firmer and more stimulating, more caramel.
Light peppers, not very long, sweet, honey, strawberry.
- The distillate of Glenfarclas is very famous and that is right, to believe this simple 8 years at 40%. A few more years would have allowed him to put more and develop the typical velvet side brought by sherry which, in this version, is detectable only on the nose. Suggested chord with a pipe: Virginia tobacco flake pressed, e.g. a Capstan.
Very typical cereals. In light weft, a hint of vanilla (effect bourbon barrels?) Then, in the second part, a hint of sherry (Xérès Fino).
Close to the nose: cereals, slight touch of vanilla. It does not have the watery side of some 40% but becomes slightly raspy on the finish.
Average length, always on the cereal.
- Color: amber. Nose: pleasant aromas of sherry and fruit. Taste: round, malty with aromas of toffee and fruit show. The finish is soft and well balanced with aromas of sherry and light spicy tones
- Fresh and sweet notes with a little peat in the nose. Somewhat dry with a malty sherry and peaty smoke on the palate. Very short, but pleasant finish. Absolutely neutral dram, loose and easy in between. Sweet, malty fresh and pleasantly light.
