    Tasting Notes by George S. Grant (Glenfarclas Brand Ambassador)A lovely rich, dark whisky - colour more often associated with a dark cognac.
    A big heavy-sherried whisky; great if you like them big and powerful,
    this bottling is more than 40 years old but has lost none of its
    appeal. Still strong but not overpowering. Some vanilla and citrus
    present at the back of your mouth - almost like the caramelised fruit
    you`d find in a fruit cake.
    A wonderful long finish sitting heavily at the back of your mouth. Sherry flavours and fruit cake wonderfully balanced.
