  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A serious and good Farclas in a great presentation. Clearly ripened in refill casks, the clearly spicy oak suggests a high proportion of European oak!

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    It is a bit rough and ready but the palate has a nice sweetness that grows on you, for the price it is reasonable value.

  4. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      First, full sweet Sherrynote which then increasingly turns into a fruitiness. Reminiscent of barreled Kirschwasser or plum brandy. Jaffacake, caramel malt and a hint of smoke. Spicy in the background as well as hints of moss, menthol and old fruit crates.
    • Taste
      Full sherry tones and a pithy spice wrestle for the upper hand. More nuts, light rancion notes, rainy hay and pungent maltiness. Later also floury apples.
    • Finish
      Long with fruity sherry tones, oak, dark chocolate and subtle smoky roasted aromas.
