Connoisseur mister glenfarclas Tasting note

mister glenfarclas gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Quite a lot of fresh wood and superglue, reminds me of some well aged bourbon. Then fresh, sulphury sherry. Sour gummibears. Carried by quite some strong alcohol. Behind that salty, spicy oak. Adorable!

Taste

Young and feisty from the start. Heavy sherry influence, overdominant. Again sourish with lots of sulphur. The tongue needs time to get used to the high abv. However this whisky obviously depends on its high abv since it totally loses it charcater by diluting it.

Finish

Not that long. Mostly the heavy sherry influence again. Ending with a numb, leathery mouth feeling.

Comments

That´s what I call a dirty cask. I really adore these kind of whiskys. Not that complex, not a lot of depth. But very interisting for such sherry bomb lovers like me.

Das Sherryfass hat deutliche Rottöne hinterlassen, der Malt schimmert rotbraun und glänzend. Leichte ölige Fäden laufen am Glas hinunter, als ich den Malt kurz schwenke.

Mal sehen was die Nase findet: auf den ersten Schwung hab ich mal etwas Alkohol, also muss ich da nochmal ne Runde sanfter ran. mit rechts rieche ich sofort Feigen, die in einer Pfanne in Rotwein vor sich hinköcheln, der Rotwein einreduziert, die Feigen mit dunkler flüssiger Schoki leicht betreufelt werden und dann an Vanille (eis) kommen. links nehme ich leider immer noch nur Alkohol wahr.

ich habe viel Süße, ein bißchen eckt der Akkohol an - aber das ist das junge wilde. Nicht angepasst, eher auffallend. Die Feige ist eher zur roten Pflaume gewurden. Dann ist da etwas pfeffriges, fast schon ne zarte Chilinote. (scharfe Pflaume könnte man auch mal aus-
probieren, sauerkirsche mit Chili schmeckt ja auch genial). Dann und immer wieder ein wenig Schoki, aber so richtig dunkel ist die nicht. AUch hier, wie schon bei dem jungen und sehr kontrovers diskutierten Arran, hab ich wieder etwas ledriges. Nicht unangenehm. Und etwas, was
mich an den Satz vom türkischen Kaffee erinnert. Was soll ich sagen, ich mag ihn sehr. AUch wenn er nicht ewig bleibt und nicht super tief ist,  trotzdem ein Leckerli.

This one has a very nice (but forceful) sherry coat offset by a gentle salinity, which, I assume, comes from the spirit. Excellent vigour and body, but it lacks the complexity required to earn a higher grade. Still - if you see this in a shop near you, buy it. A vibrant sherried islander.
