    Ralfy review 543: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAOkaSk9pns (90/100).

    "... we're moving away from what is recognizably the house style of Glenfarclas. ... But this is such a great example of a single malt, of a quality spirit where if you take your time and give it time to develop in the glass with water, you gonna be well rewarded with a much more progressive and, you know, full experience of a whisky which is unraveling and opening up."

    Balance sheet (22) In the blind, I would go to ol-inn that this is Springbank (90) Elegant silence for a chic price.
    • Nose
      The fragrance is dry, fresh ... a shell of fried seeds ... a tree and a liquor ... a watermelon ... a smoke ?? ... a ripe plum and peach jam ... a marshmallow ... rotten fruit (23)
    • Taste
      Taste sweet, woody ... exotic fruit ... jelly ... citrus (22)
    • Finish
      Finish creamy-spicy ... wood and caramel ... chocolate crumb ... varnish ... tobacco (23)

    Unmistakably a Glenfarclas and yet always a positive surprise when I try it again.

  6. Waykid scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.

    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.

      Rather long, sweet, vanilla
