Glenfarclas 50 yo 1956/2006 (50%, OB 'for friends', Edition 2, cask #1779, 96 bottles) Star5.jpg Bottled for Hans Wuersching. Colour: gold. Nose: more discrete but maybe more elegant than the huge 1961 at first nosing, starting and developing rather marvellously on all kinds of herbal and resinous aromas. Pine wood, moss, eucalyptus, cedar wood, crystallised lemons (rare in old Glenfarclas), mint... Then dried pears, citrons, quince, kumquats... This is absolutely superb! Mouth: excellent, truly excellent. Very resinous (luv’ that), very minty and very camphory. All kinds of cough sweets and syrups reunited or something like that, pine sweets as well. Plus crystallised oranges and lemons and spices (a little pepper, cinnamon from the wood and dried cardamom.) Finish: long, half-resinous, half-oaky. Comments: and impressive old Glenfarclas that matured particularly well. And the resins! SGP:572 – 92 points.
