4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.52 points

  1. molar3rd scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Thick and spicy. Big sherry notes. Plums. Lots of sugar. Some vanilla. Grape peel , acetone and balsamic. Brilliant. Sherry Colossus. FTW!

    Palate: As thick as the nose suggest. Almost chewable. Dates and plum jam. Sultana. Tons of sugar. Spice and nuts. Peppery and some notes of chilly. Caramel with a sprinkle of salt.

    Finish: Plum jam. Salt. Chilly. Dried fruit compote.

    In short:

    Oh my. That is some good ‘Farclas sir! Full strength, complex, sweet, salty, savory, spicy. It has got it all, and so much flavor. Cask strength rocks, and that is a fact. I want a bottle of this. and fast!

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 615 bottles from cask no. 5642

    This unnamable Speyside distillery exclusively uses ex-sherry casks for its proprietary bottlings: the rich style of the make suits this wood perfectly. We reckon this might be a first-fill ex-sherry butt: the whisky has a deep magenta hue, shot with ruby. The nose is all rich fruits and mixed peel, with marmalade, then marmalade cake - even Jaffa Cakes, for after a while a distinct chocolate note emerges, becoming cherries ‘robed’ (as they say) in dark chocolate. There is a hint of pencil erasers, especially when tasted at full strength and when water is added, and brown sugar at reduced strength. The latter becomes burnt sugar in the mouth – sweet, then bitter-sweet – and the overall effect is curiously cooling in the mouth after a lengthy finish. An excellent example and a fine digestif malt.
