    N: to be the master, here, in the context of an open and very low-alcoholic whisky, is malt: a malt that does not hide its youth, but rather exhibits it proudly: and it is good !, because there is no the usual saccharine note of candied fruit, but deeper notes of fermented malt, of washback ... Par of being in the distillery! Then, hazelnuts and almonds; blood orange; shades of red fruit, of wood. Wet barrel, and like ginger spice and a hair of pepper. Egg yolk. As proof of the already solid structure, water (although superfluous for alcoholic impact) opens and opens the most juicy and fruity side. Ah, we still had some ... P: very clean and pleasant, with a fresh but enveloping body, almost oily. The citrus is reaffirmed in the foreground, together - again - to the true protagonist, the malt: this however is more 'vegetal' here than on the nose, less from 'distillery': it has a very pleasant herbaceous sweetness. Barley! Sugary and dangerously drinkable. Herbal infusion; honey. It remains simple, if we want, but a truly amazing simplicity, full and mature in its own way. A beautiful suggestion of zabaione. The water does the same magic as the nose, opening on a caramel and still on the fruit. F: clean and delicate, and guess what? The malt vincit omnia. A well-made malt by a flawless distillery that does not need wood scraps to give flavor to your product, even if so young, for the current waiting horizon (even if, on this question, you give a look at Davide's article ...). Direct, sincere, at the top. Congratulations to Andrea and Giuseppe, the choice of a malt so ... malty and so little ruffiano was not at all obvious: and a drop of water, keep in mind, you will end a bottle in half an hour! We unfortunately added it only when our malt was running out, otherwise we would have explored that side a lot more http://whiskyfacile.com/2014/11/21/glenfarclas-2006-2014-ob-for-milano-whisky-festival-495/
