  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Metallic and young. Nevertheless voluminous and overripe fruit. Amazing amount of pepper and sharpness. Habituation needed but delicious. Not a typical Glenfarclas for me.
    • Nose
      Oranges and citrus fruits, voluminous fruit aroma with fruity sherry, slightly metallic, overripe pears.
    • Taste
      Only briefly full-bodied fruity then comes the spicy wood. Now a peppery sharpness arises, in the reverberation the fruit comes to the fore again.
    • Finish
      Spicy wood emits a plump warmth, then pepper and sharpness again. Slightly metallic with a nut note at the end of the finish.

    what a development - fresh in the glass he looked young, metallic unsettling, after a short time and with a little hand warmth wonderful fragrant fruit flavors rise - delicious
    • Nose
      waxy oak, delicate, restrained oranges with peel, orange peel, apricot jam, generally a bit weak.
      If you warm up the dram a bit: the apricot note intensifies to a very tasty very intense very fruity fragrance, broken gingerbread hearts are probably the best: cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, apricot orange jam, a touch of nut, mint, later strong tobacco notes, floral oak
    • Taste
      just after pouring a bit more metallic - with some life: sweet and sour apricot jam, orange peel and juice, mint, orange tictac, tingling oak, some chocolate and bitter almond
    • Finish
      mild, delicate, fruity, slightly waxy, slightly (pleasant) floral, slightly dry, spicy warm finish

    noses like the glenfarclas 17, but tastes and finishes like the 15, good whisky though, i just happen to prefer the 17

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great, 60 € taste completely appropriate, strong, intense, interesting ..
    • Nose
      strong, plum jam, dark berries, gingerbread spice, speculaas ... as calm as possible, if you "sucked" the glass too much, first comes only fresh grain and BW tank biscuit, until it has "perfumed"
    • Taste
      sweet and spicy, a lot of oak, pepper, allspice, some cinnamon, clove, the sweetness intense, but rather poorly defined (sugar / honey), behind the tongue a dark-bitter-fruity note, so between licorice, elderberry and cough syrup
    • Finish
      long, spicy, pepper, dark chocolate, cough drops

  9. Joschbert scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Intense but somewhat one-dimensional. Water addition brings little change.
    • Nose
      Plums, fruit compote, cinnamon, the alcohol easily stands out, chocolate, raisins, tart fruit notes, berries, vanilla
    • Taste
      Calvados (?), Dark chocolate, raisins, cinnamon, kirsch, altogether light alcoholic strength, which decreases with water
    • Finish
      slight bitterness, very dry, cinnamon, reminiscent of cherries or apricot stones
