    This Whisky is 7 y.o., as Glenfarclas Distillery told me by e-mail.

    Bold, rich and sweet taste, on malty and honeyed notes; unexpected more bourbon instead the distilleries typical oloroso sherry profile. Could be a  vatting of first and refill sherry casks, where the refill butts gained the overhand. Nice and very long finish though, with a bit more sherry influence, what I enjoyed most. Soft tannins at the very end hints at some older whisky in the vatting.
