  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Glenfarclas
    50 yo 1956/2006 (50%, OB 'for friends',
    Edition 2, cask #1779, 96 bottles)

    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.
