- 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.
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 sweet, woody ... exotic fruit ... jelly ... citrus (22)
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.
- 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.
