Whisky Reviews for Glenfarclas 2007

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.67 points

  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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!

    23/23/22/22 (90P)
    • 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.

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    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,

  3. 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

  4. Segens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Alkohol too dominant in the nose nevertheless enjoyable fruity sherry Note. Taste Is better as The alcohol is carrying the nice taste. Finish is Long but too wooden for me but Taste remains positive. For its money (65€) an excellent dram but to be honest I expected more.

  5. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nice spice mixture, also in the nose at the empty glass. The Pulteney was a bit more complex, but this is fuller, also gets 84 points. Hm, I've got a half bottle of this, fits. As well as everyday Dram! Notes from an online chat tasting
    • Nose
      either the color or my light here is strange, I just thought, I'm tilting a Port whisky ... also touch on Oloroso ... First, sherry, not very sweet, but goes back quickly, then spices with a sour touch, woody. The alcohol bizzles a bit more here, but also goes well. The sourish goes, then come nougat and herbs. Warm up ... Yikes, that will be delicious. Gingerbread, some mulled wine, raisins, and floral Beiklang. referring to a throw-in: salty apricot in mocha I like. Can I smell ... and I have an appetite right away. Otherwise, he is sometimes quite flowery, but at the same time nutty, full. Bread with fruits.
    • Taste
      Mmh, fed, sweet, tasty, OK, a bit metallic is also, but very well covered. The alcohol is perfectly integrated. Delicious. Honey and spices. Not as complex as the nose.
    • Finish
      In the finish then nice tart notes, some menthol, honey-sweetened chocolate. Tea: Backwards the bitter thing dominates, but very pleasant. And is not so short the departure.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The tasting is fun, interesting thing, always fascinating, which is possible with whisky in taste.
    • Nose
      sweet Sour. ;-)
      Chocolate, nougat, a hint of plum jam. Strong citrus notes, sour freshness, more watery grassy notes
    • Taste
      double-pronged again - nougat, milk chocolate, roasted nuts, cereals / fresh to bitter vegetal notes, lime, grass, melon skin
    • Finish
      medium length, tingling, milk chocolate with bitter lemon

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A young, strong Glenfarclas.
    • Nose
      Nice toffee and chocolate notes, but also fresh fruit notes, a fine acid, nuts and an alcohol impact. With water, the malt is fruity and younger, with some sherry, liquorice and lemon.
    • Taste
      Strong, nutty, sherry, tart oak, dark fruits, but also a lot of sharpness. It softens with water, but the tart notes also increase a bit. In addition a clear mint note.
    • Finish
      The minty note runs into the finish, with a lighter bitterness and beautiful sherry notes. In the end even some tobacco.

  8. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    nice mixture of a young fire and intense sherry barrel aging, maybe the whisky would have done 3-4 years more in the barrel, maybe not ... at least I would admit some water, makes it rounder.
    • Nose
      Pure: on the one hand intense sherry, a lot of chocolate, hot chocolate fountain, but next to fresh citrus fruit, perhaps originating from the youth of the bottling. This harmonises amazingly well together. With water: now both approach, it results in a red-green cherry-mint mixture, very interesting and different than usual.
    • Taste
      here a similar picture, first heavy cherry jam, milk chocolate, with lime and peppermint. Interesting! With water: even better, no longer so separated the two worlds, also here more interwoven. Class!
    • Finish
      medium, the youth catch up, the sherry stays tuned, rather dry.
