    Blind tasting:
    A delicious and interesting malt! The sharp, shaped by gunpowder note in the taste and aftertaste takes some getting used to, but gives this bottling a special character and makes me this malt. The nose is extremely sweet and goes in the direction of "Schnüffelwhisky". A great and high-contrast whisky, I like it very much!

    • Nose
      Dark Caramel shines clearly in the Premium Snifter, on the glass wall sticks a tough streak of the occasional oily drops and loosely seek their way back into the glass. Dark orange aroma and chewy caramel rise powerfully on the nose during the first nosing, hazelnuts and roasted aromas dissolve and end in creamy milk chocolate. Dark peaches and old apricots stand out with a hint of vanilla, nut chocolate and a dash of fresh mint show up. The yellow fruits retreat as cherries and plums move into the foreground. Beguiling sweetness flatters the nose, the nose gains significantly in volume, if I could I would not drink this malt but inhale ... ;-)
    • Taste
      Briefly, dark fruit flavors rest in the mouth before spicy wood elements hit the palate after the first sip. A load of pepper explodes on the tongue, it tingles and tickles in the entire mouth area. After the charge of gunpowder slowly fades away, hazelnuts, burnt sugar and dried apricots and peaches appear. Chubby warmth dresses for minutes the palate, still sticks a (now) pleasantly sharp film on the tongue, walnuts swim oily and slightly rancid in the saliva. On the second sip, dark caramel comes into its own before another shot of gunpowder and extremely hot pepper explode on the tongue. Gradually dark and dried fruit flavors come to light, hints of grapefruit and other citrus fruits give the taste a tart touch.
    • Finish
      The pleasant sharpness still sticks between tongue and palate, slightly decayed pieces of wood rest under the tongue, the echo now looks slightly earthy and harsh. Dark walnuts and wet leaves appear after a few moments, the aftertaste becomes tighter and wooden. An indefinable spice note sticks to the palate, the mouthfeel gets creamier, the salivation is astonishingly only now aroused in the aftertaste.

    Ranking: 1st nose, 2nd mouth, 3rd finish
    • Nose
      damp wicker basket, Rumrosinenschokolade
      dark toffee
      a bit of salt
      Apricot in mocha

      in the background flowery spices

      nice nose
    • Taste
      on the tongue comes the Glenfarclas typical with caramel, malt, dark and intense

      Raisins, a little alcohol, chocolate, malt, a little spice, the mouth can not quite hold what the nose promises

      but he is also flowery and spicy, dark and malty
    • Finish
      something like sugar beet syrup, chocolate, slightly bitter,

    Very cool. I found it totally crazy and I would have estimated the blind much older. Top. This is how I enjoy Glenfarclas!
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Orange - Red - Gold: D

      Nose:
      Hmmmm ...: love:
      Where do I start ...? The flavors shoot right into your nose. I'll start with wet leather. Followed by damp tobacco and a flag of dirty smoke. Lovage, soup stock cubes and rust dust. Paprika sweet spice and some bacon. Just reminds me of these bacon chips. With a little time in the glass, I find these dark cherries and blackberry liqueurs. From the background come subtly sweet figs. A little mint cools the nose pleasantly. The colleague blows out one aroma after another. The longer he gets air in the glass, the more he gives up. This slightly dirty touch puts the crown on. Rum raisins make their way, followed by a few splashes of lemon. If he gets more air, he looks a bit more acidic for a short time. A sour, inlaid berry aroma and balsamic prevail. And wet wood.
    • Taste
      Strong start. The alcohol pushes the flavors over your tongue. Holla the forest fairy. Hot. Exactly my construction site. Pretty brutal, but still very pleasant. I'm at Christmas right now. Clove, cinnamon and cardamom. Also in the taste I find rum raisins and a cognac-like touch. This delicate, dirty smoke note always goes well with you. Blackberries, blueberries and Mon Cheri. The leather is now slowly moving and pulling the tongue off. Herbs and tobacco became more and more popular. A tart, sweet taste arises. A dry, nutty aroma is created. Now looks a bit bitter. But still a sweet, sugared touch is always there.
    • Finish
      Long. Only sweetly dark-fruity. Then dirty, tart with herbs. A little cold espresso bitterness
      And that little bit of smoke.

  4. RobbievdB scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A too young Glenfarclas. It developed a nice full cherry and fudgey sweets aroma paired with raisins, some dry leaves-ish notes. But overall this is quite sharp with lots of corners to be rounded. Even water and time doesn’t really tame this. Should stay in the barrels for a few more years.

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A sophisticated version of the 105. Very intense with nice sherry notes.
    Very pleasant whisky.

      Still strong and powerful, prunes, coffee and chocolate, honey and some red fruit. Intense, long finish.

  8. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Neat for his age, more PX than Oloroso character, very sweet, warm and winy.

    I had blind in the glass - I'm strongly from a red wine barrel finish - very strange

  10. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Even an impact in the mouth, but as well as in the nose, he has a little unfinished, a lot of alcohol, a lot of strength, would have taken a little more time to get down.
    • Nose
      Very concentrated nose, moist hay, raisins, Esther notes, mocha beans, dark caramel, clove and nutmeg, dark chocolate, all but very distant and like a seething volcano in the distance
    • Taste
      Nut packet in the mouth, dark malt, Vollmichschokolade, Nutellatoast, baked apple, nutmeg and black pepper, cinnamon and berry jam, engine oil and even a little alcoholic course, clove
    • Finish
      Chocolate syrup, nutmeg, gravy, tannins, some oak, medium to long
