    sorry, this GF is really not a luminary in the whisky world. Tastes young and without special body.

    A rock solid single malt from Glenfarclas. No Sherry Monster with complex flavors, but a delicious all-day dram. In my opinion, a great PLV!

    For me, the Passion, Springs and Team are almost identical and differ only in nuances.

    The only criticism is the missing age (NAS) and the sparse information about this bottling.
    • Nose
      Strong and amber, the Glenfarclas shines in the glass. Oily and heavy, the drops run back into the glass when panning. Fine and fruity sherry rises from the glass. It is followed by a pleasant sweetness and honey, gradually adding slightly pungent alcohol. At the end a touch of oak.
    • Taste
      The mouth fills with the first sip of fruity, slightly sweet oak. Sherry mixes with the wooden aroma. Complex and powerful, the Passion exudes a plump warmth in the mouth.
    • Finish
      The long finish unfolds again these mighty wood flavors. Fruity sherry stays in the mouth long and warm. A great and powerful finish.

    Hell yes, it's a NAS. Nothing against that, a honest Glenfarclas for a honest price. Lots of sherry, lots of taste. Only the finish could be a little longer...

    The Glenfarclas team is a pretty light whisky. The aroma is essentially dominated by sherry. Apricots, dried fruits and some chocolate. The taste is divided into two parts: on the one hand there are fruits like cherry and some plum, on the other hand a slightly bitter note, which reminds of dark chocolate. Nuts and almonds also appear in the background. The finish is medium long and leaves a very slight impression.
    A simple whisky that you can enjoy very easily without coming across the typical Glenfarcla qualities.
