Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 1954

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.05 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    I may not add any water (I added 3 drops total) to this if given a second chance, but lychees did pop up in the nose! Anyways, this is obviously great whisky. I'm not going to try to pretend that there are many faults here. Anything negative i'm just being nitpicky and to point out that nothing in life is perfect. Except my baby girl. 
    • Nose
      On first nosing, a bit of an alcoholic sting, but there is definitely some complexity hiding underneath... maybe I'll wait a bit. Yup. Subtle fruits of every kind... ripe mandarin oranges and fuji apples, stewed pears, green grapes, honeydew, rambutans. After a few drops of water, even lychees (my favorite fruit in a whisky, besides mangos)!! Very tropical!
    • Taste
      Wow, this is perfect. Reveals everything with first sip. Mouthfeel, complexity, balance, fruitiness, coats your mouth yumminess without being tired or old. There are also old leather books, and definitely a bit of old metallic tin boxes
    • Finish
      I would like this to be closer to 50% but you can't have everything in life, can you? The finish is nice and definitely not short, but with something of this potential, you sort of want this to last forever. Alas, it's still a great finish, without anything too oaky at all.
