Unverkennbar ein Glenfarclas und trotzdem immer wieder eine positive Überraschung, wenn ich ihn mal wieder probiere.

I agree with Thermidor. Sure took it's sweet time to reach it's potential but then as immensely rewarding as the normal 15 with a 46%. I really like alot what they are doing here, though I wont grant any more points for the higher ABV, so 87 for both. And I also wont be purchasing another: as far as their normal 15 stays as stunning as it is, it is quite enough for me: at the recent price/quality it is a bang for your (or at least my) buck just the way it is.

Thermidor gave this whisky 86 points

This bottle seemed to take forever to settle down properly after being opened, something to the tune of 2-3 months. Before that it always felt too nervous and I couldn't hit a sweet spot when decanting, but after settling down it's exactly what you'd expect a 15yo CS Glenfarclas to be. It deserves a point more than the OB 15 from me because the added % makes it more fun to play with water, but qualitywise I feel they are identical. After finishing my bottle I didn't feel the need to get another one on account of the much higher price than the OB 15.

N: Starts with salty and spicy crisps, ginger, vanilla icecream and rubbery sherry [sulphur hint only].

T: Spirit sweet malt, dried fruit and a viscose mouthfeel give this an overall oily flapjack/cereal bar feel.

F: Ginger and vanilla

C: Fabulous. The higher abv really gives the standard 15yo a flavour boost.
