  2. rdavek did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    When I first opened this bottle the smell of rubber was overwhelming.  It dissipated on the nose after 20 minutes or so but it remained on the palate.  What a difference a week makes.  Rubber is completely gone, mouth feel is rich and creamy, and the palate is brimming with dried fruits, chocolate and a little eucalyptus in the finish.  Excellent.  My original score of 83 is blown away,.

  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    From two first-fill sherry casks... Like a good Balvenie 15 sherry cask, but slightly better across the board. Not terribly complex but no off-flavors. A very good sherried Glenfarclas! Purchased for $150USD... now $170. I give it 89 points.
