- Tasting notes by the producer (George S. Grant):
I know whisky shouldn`t be like wine and have exceptional vintages, but I have to say 1959 is a quite amazing `vintage` from Glenfarclas.
It has a great, rich, dark mahogany colour and a big, rich, chocolaty nose. Think bitter coco beans floating in a shot of the best espresso, followed by layers of marzipan, red liquorice and Christmas cake.
Close your eyes and you could imagine this as anything but whisky. It could be a Cognac or an Armagnac.
After some lovely light smokiness at the front of the mouth, light tannins give way to a wave of oakiness, which in turn give way to burnt bitter chocolate.
With a finish that lasts until morning, it is truly awe-inspiring.
