  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A typical Glenfarclas Edition! The wonderful, fruity sherry fascinates me and triggers my predecessors for the next sip. A fine and great malt.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully reddish amber, almost copper shimmers in the glass. Slight streaks stick to the glass wall when panning. The color whets the appetite for more. Dark chocolate and dark fruits dominate on the first nosing. Raisins, sweet fruit and a touch of leather complete the wonderful nose. The alcohol is discreetly integrated and stays pleasant in the background.
    • Taste
      Wow, strong sherry pushes in the first sip in the foreground. A pleasant wooden aroma follows the sherry, espresso and again light leather dominate now. The aftertaste creates a fine nutty aroma.
    • Finish
      In the finish again fruity sherry with a fine woody aroma. Chocolate and coffee stay cozy and long in the mouth. At the end there is still a nutty echo.

      Medium length, coffee, chocolate and gingerbread spice

  7. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Absolutely balanced, easygoing and at the same time elegant and complex. Very tasty and no comparison to the standard 25er. The distinct acidity that pervades bothers me a little, but makes it interesting and fresh. Still not as good or typically sherrylastig as the No. 18th
    • Nose
      Uff, quite clear alcohol note, which one must first get used to. Dry sherry, oak, plums. Now it is sweeter and fuller, fruity creamy at the same time a fresh citrus note in the background, sugared orange peel, leather, some salt, very bitter chocolate, raisins, a hint of licorice and caramel, lots of red fruit, not as heavy and old as expected but wonderful harmonious and balanced. Fresh and light fruit than the No.18 with a marked acidity. Nutty in the second nose and slightly sweeter with vanilla sugar.
    • Taste
      sweet fruitiness at the beginning. After that push vigorously the oak with its spice. Tingling, slightly sour, orange juice, a little bit awkward
    • Finish
      medium length with caramel, chocolate, oak, coffee and pleasantly long remaining Sherryfruchte, sour juice and sweetness
